South Carolina 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.
South Carolina 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.
Obtaining a low mortgage rate typically starts with improving one's credit scores and debt-to-income ratio. It's also a good idea 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. Let us walk through one of our many South Carolina home mortgages, including FHA, VA, Conventional, USDA, and more.
Down payment assistance
South Carolina home buyers may qualify for down payment assistance. If you’re looking to purchase a South Carolina home, let us help you understand what options and grants* are available to you.
