Getting a mortgage for your Illinois home

The range of options for location, style, price, and property type seem endless. From Chicago to Champaign, and Springfield to Carbondale, there’s truly something for everyone in Illinois.

If you already live in the Land of Lincoln and want more money in your pocket each month, we offer mortgage refinancing options too.

Illinois mortgage rates and trends

2020 saw national mortgage rates drop to all-time lows in large part due to COVID-19. This resulted in millions of Americans taking advantage of low borrowing costs. 

Illinois mortgage rates followed that trend, but are seeing a gradual increase in 2021. That said, rates remain low by historical standards. 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.

Down payment assistance

Illinois home buyers may qualify for down payment assistance. If you’re looking to purchase an Illinois home, let us help you understand what options and grants* are available to you.

Be sure to ask about:

  • Chenoa

  • Dream Makers Grant

  • Forgivable and non-forgivable second mortgages

  • First-time home buyer incentives

  • Closing cost assistance

  • Tax credits

*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.
