First Tennessee Bank offers mortgage warehouse lines of credit ranging from $3
Million to $50 Million.
Our warehouse relationships are priced competitively with other major national
lenders and tailored to each customer’s specific circumstances. Rates are
typically based on 30-day LIBOR plus a spread determined by loan volumes,
funding methods, operational expenses, etc.
We charge one all-inclusive warehouse fee for each loan funded. The amount of
the fee is tailored to each relationship and is based on factors such as
interest rate, funding method, loan volume, etc.
There are no application fees, no shipping fees, no report fees, no legal fees,
and no due diligence fees. A non-usage fee may apply in certain circumstances.
The First Tennessee warehouse line may be used to fund up to the full note
