About Terry W. Keeton
A Word from Terry…
The purchase and financing of a home is often referred to as “the largest financial decision most people make”. It therefore makes sense that you choose a Mortgage Lender and a Licensed Mortgage Loan Officer that has its client’s best interest as its primary goal. You have found that with New American Funding and me.
The benefits of doing business with a national firm such as New American Funding is that it has been around for over 20 years weathering any number of economic climates and conditions. Working with New American Funding therefore gives you the experience you need to be successful in any market condition.
Considering the magnitude of the decision, it is surprising how uninformed the average person is with regard to the mortgage lending process. By in large however, it is simply due to the fact that it’s something you do only a handful of times in your life at most. I have always believed that the best service I can offer my clients is to educate them to the process and then to offer them the best service available. I therefore offer you my guidance in educating you with regard to all aspects of the home purchasing and home loan process.
I look forward to working with you and to helping you find the home mortgage solution that is best for you. No one will work harder to ensure your complete satisfaction!

Pathway to HomeOwnership
Are you Ready?
At New American Funding, we believe that every person deserves a clear path to achieving their dream of homeownership. So, we created the Pathway to Homeownership initiative to alleviate some of your financial worries.
What is the Pathway to
The Pathway to Homeownership offers qualified borrowers in select areas up to $8,000 in assistance. These funds are not a loan that needs to be repaid and are available to first-time homebuyers in designated areas.
This program can also potentially be combined with other down payment assistance programs to offer you even more support as you build the life of your dreams.
NAF Cash Can Turn You into a Cash Buyer
Buying in cash means convenience, certainty, and may mean cost savings too. In fact, buying in cash may help you save up to 11% over those using a traditional mortgage.* With NAF Cash, you can make a competitive, true cash offer that is not contingent on financing and close in little as seven days without having to sell your current home first.
*According to a study from researchers at the University of California - San Diego, cash buyers have paid about 11% less than using a mortgage.
