Freedom Mortgage has announced that it has suspended residential property foreclosures and evictions and has taken additional measures to assist customers, communities and employees grappling with the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic

Freedom Mortgage has maintained its position as the top VA mortgage lender in the first quarter of 2017, originating $2.7 billion in VA mortgage loans in the first quarter of 2017, representing a market share of 6.2 percent, according to Inside FHA/VA Lending. Refinancing accounted for more than 75 percent of Freedom Mortgage's VA originations in the quarter.
 
Market conditions negatively impacted VA volume for lenders nationwide. Lenders closed an aggregate $42.9 billion of VA loans in the first quarter, down 28.1 percent from the fourth quarter of 2016. Eight of the top VA lenders saw large declines in their VA lending, with refinances accounting for just 27.7 percent of total VA production in the first quarter.
 
"We were able to react quickly to rising interest rates and maintain our position in the industry.  Freedom Mortgage is honored to be one of the nation's top VA lenders," said Stanley Middleman, president and CEO of Freedom Mortgage. "We continue to offer our nation's veterans favorable terms, low down payments and great service, whether they want to buy a new home, refinance or explore a cash out with an existing mortgage."
