You truly have the best of all worlds from major city living in Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville to the easily accessible beaches along the East Coast — like Folly Beach or Isle of Palms. Perhaps your interest is in the country where you can view million dollar sunsets every evening? You’ll find your wallet goes a bit further to accommodate whichever interest in South Carolina you have, as the cost of living is remarkably low.

South Carolina mortgage rates and trends
Millions of Americans have been taking advantage of low borrowing costs as national mortgage rates dropped to all-time lows during the COVID-19 pandemic.
South Carolina mortgage rates have experienced similar trends. Even though we are seeing gradual rate increases taking place, 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 American Financing’s free mortgage review. Because a lower rate could mean hundreds of dollars in monthly savings, you should make sure you aren’t overpaying for your mortgage.
You deserve to work with a lender who will customize a loan program based on your unique needs. That's exactly what our team does at American Financing. We’d love to walk through one of our many South Carolina home mortgages, including FHA, VA, Conventional, USDA, and more.
