ARE YOU READY TO OWN A HOME?
Life of Victory Christian Ministries
The Great Choice Loan Program offers downpayment assistance and 30-year fixed interest rate mortgage loans to qualified Tennesseans.
For first-time homebuyers, one of the greatest obstacles in the home-ownership process is saving the money to cover the down-payment and closing costs. The Great Choice Loan Program provides qualified Tennesseans up to 4% down-payment assistance to be used with FHA, VA, USDA-Rural Development and uninsured conventional loans.
SPECIAL OFFER FOR REPEAT HOME-BUYERS
THDA mortgage products were designed for first-time homebuyers. However, in over 50 counties and certain neighborhoods across Tennessee, the first-time homebuyer restriction has been removed, and families that are currently homeowners may qualify for the Great Choice Loan Program if purchasing a new home in one of these areas.
GREAT CHOICE SPECIAL MILITARY DISCOUNT PROGRAM
“Homeownership for the Brave,” provides a ½% rate reduction on the current interest rate for Great Choice loans. In addition to the rate reduction, "Home-ownership for the Brave" applicants are eligible for optional down-payment and closing cost assistance through the Great Choice Plus second mortgage loan at a 0% interest rate.

- Steps to homeownership
- Clarify common, but confusing, mortgage concepts like title insurance and PMI
- Outline various mortgage types, including THDA’s Great Choice Loan Program
- Develop an understanding of budgeting and credit scores
