If you already live in the Land of Lincoln and want more money in your pocket each month, we offer mortgage refinancing options too.
2018 saw national mortgage rates on the rise due to the Federal Reserve (Fed) increasing the benchmark interest rate in June. This resulted in an increase in consumer borrowing costs to help keep the economy from overheating.
Illinois mortgage rates followed that trend, but are seeing a significant decrease in 2019. If you took out a new home loan or refinanced your mortgage in 2018, it may be time to consider lowering your rate with a mortgage refinance. In fact, regardless of when you took out a mortgage, it's in your best interest to take advantage of a free mortgage review with a trustworthy lender. A lower rate could mean hundreds of dollars in monthly savings.
Mortgage rates largely depend on credit scores and debt-to-income ratio, among other factors. That's why it's important to work with a lender who will find you the best loan option. You can count on American Financing for a customized home mortgage, whether it's FHA, VA, Conventional, USDA, or another loan program.

*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.
