Getting Preapproved

Named by Freddie Mac as the nation’s hottest housing market in 2017, Nashville is one of the most desirable real estate markets in the region and it’s also one of the most competitive. After two years of record home price appreciation from 2016-2018, home prices in Nashville have finally started to cool off just a little, making it that much more attractive to buy a house. Property values as well as the available inventory of homes for sale are projected to increase modestly throughout 2019, and there is still a lot of competition for the better homes. In other words, it pays to be prepared.

The most important first step in the home buying process is getting preapproved. Most realtors in the Nashville area will insist that you have a preapproval letter just to get in the game. Good news - Nutter offers No Cost Home Loan Preapprovals in Nashville. We can provide you with a Nutter Preapproval Letter, usually within 24 hours, so you’ll have the power of a cash buyer and the peace of mind that you can make an offer with confidence. Get more information on getting preapproved.

ATTENTION: U.S. Veterans & Active Duty Military Personnel

Fort Campbell, the home of the 101st Airborne and thousands of our fighting men and women is located less than an hour from Nashville. Along the way, you’ll pass the cities of Clarksville and Hopkinsvills which offer even shorter commutes to Nashville and less expensive houses.

Nutter Home Loans was founded in 1951 by James B. Nutter, Sr., a U.S. Army Veteran. The first home loan the Nutter Company ever made was a VA Home Loan back in 1951! We truly care about helping our military personnel and their families, unlike some VA mortgage lenders who advertise on TV but overcharge Veterans thousands of dollars in closing costs for their loans.

We have a host of special resources just for Veterans and active duty personnel who are looking to take advantage of their VA benefits to buy a home. If you have general questions about VA Home Loans or you’re just curious about your eligibility, check out our VA Resource Center or read our Nutter Guide to Buying a House for Veterans.
