Review Breakdown

Terrible experience

I used AFN to purchase my first home. It was during the pandemic summer 2020. Rates were at a all time low, low 2%. I have great credit, low debt to income, and make over 6 figures. My home was promised to close within 30 days, didn’t close for 60 days, seller almost pulled out the deal and threatened us to release funds to compensate for the delay. I was given the runaround about what was taking so long. I was lied to about what my interest rate was going to be. My initial disclosures said 3.5% but was told “that’s just what we put for now until we lock your rate” I should have easily been locked in at the low 2%. It wasn’t until I was at the closing table that I realized they locked me in at 3.5%. I had no choice but to sign or lose my home because the seller was not willing to wait for me to start the loan process over. When I brought this up to AFN, they said they would “look into” but of course never did. I would recommend to stay away from them. I ended up refinancing the beginning of 2022 and rates are going up. Ended up with a better rate at 2.99%. Do your research and go through more than one lender to compare rates so this doesn’t happen to you.
