Where can I get a mortgage?

You can get a mortgage from a wide variety of lenders, including commercial banks, thrift institutions, mortgage loan companies, and credit unions. You can also find a mortgage loan through a broker, who does not lend you the money but instead finds a lender for you.

Different lenders and brokers offer or arrange different types of loans. They generally are not required to offer you the best deal available. Always shop around to find the best loan for you.
