California's mortgage rates and trends
In large because of COVID-19 national mortgage rates dropped to all-time lows beginning in 2020. This resulted in millions of Americans accessing low borrowing costs.
Mortgage rates followed that trend in California, but we are seeing gradual increases taking place. Regardless, rates remain low by historical standards. As a result, we recommend that, regardless of when you took out a mortgage, it's in your best interest to take advantage of a free mortgage with American Financing. A lower rate could mean there’s a chance you may be able to save hundreds of dollars in monthly savings.
Debt-to-income ratio and credit scores are among some of the factors that impact mortgage rates. Turn to the team at American Financing for your mortgage lending needs. We work hard to customize a loan program that fits your needs. We offer California home buyers mortgage options, including FHA, VA, Conventional, USDA, and more.
Down payment assistance
There are some down payment assistance programs that some home buyers may qualify for in California. If you’re looking to purchase a home, let us help you understand what options and grants* may be available to you.
Check with your mortgage consultant about funding today, and be sure to ask about:
Closing cost assistance
Dream Makers Grant
First-time home buyer incentives
Forgivable and non-forgivable second mortgages
*Actual assistance amount may vary based on purchase city, credit score, and other financial requirements. Down payment assistance programs are at the city and/or state level, and they are not funded by American Financing. A homebuyer education course may need to be completed prior to applying.
