NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Better Mortgage, a digital mortgage company working to improve access to home financing through transparency, honest guidance, and zero commissions, today announced its launch in Tennessee. This launch comes as Better sees growing adoption amongst first-time homebuyers in popular metros, which cities like Nashville and Memphis have in spades due to growing employment opportunities (we see you, Amazon) and affordable starter home inventory.
“I’m excited to be launching in Tennessee, which represents yet another state where so many of its residents could benefit from a 21st-century mortgage,” said Vishal Garg, CEO. “Solutions like our Verified Pre-Approval Letter and our Better Offer empower homebuyers by giving them the edge they need to succeed in markets like Nashville, which is growing more and more competitive.”
Nationwide, homebuyers need better mortgage alternatives as mortgage rates rise and housing inventory remains tight. Better is focused on expanding its national footprint to bring more affordability to borrowers in markets around the country, all backed by the Better Price Guarantee.
Highlighting the company’s dedication to the borrower's experience, Better's Chief Revenue Officer, Vishal Bhalla added, “Tennessee is actually our top 4 most requested state from potential borrowers. I want folks to know that we heard you and we’re thrilled to be lending in the state that’s home to Music City and Dolly Parton.”
Better is focused on expanding its national footprint to bring more affordability to borrowers in markets around the country. Now, with Better, more Tennessee residents can go from renting to owning. Tennessee is also poised to see an increase in potential new residents - Nashville is one of the finalists to be Amazon’s second headquarters. According to the Brookings Institute, Nashville was ranked 19th when it comes to metro areas by percentage of college graduates. With a likely influx of potential new residents, Tennessee will benefit greatly from Better’s mortgage products that can raise the overall rate of homeownership.
Better currently originates loans in 15 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District Of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.
