20 To 30-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage

Ideal for homeowners looking to stay in their homes for at least five to 10 years. A 20 to 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has a longer loan term giving you the flexibility to have more wiggle room in your budget with a lower payment over the life of the loan. Your monthly fixed-rate gives you peace of mind in knowing the exact amount you’ll be paying on your mortgage each month.

Calendar 10-15yr icon

10 To 15-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage

The perfect loan if you want to save on interest and pay off your home sooner. With a 10 to 15-year fixed-rate mortgage, you keep more money in your wallet! This shorter-term option allows for optimal budget planning with a consistent monthly payment and an expedited path for financial growth.

Trustpilot 5 Star Rating


My experience with AmeriHome has been a 5 star experience all the way. Mimi Le, the loan officer, was very personable and made sure that every question that I had was answered with a smile. The assistant, Elsie Barajas, continued this experience very professionally and gracefully and the processor, Kenneth Ornelas, got me to the finish line with making sure that I was 100% satisfied. Overall the customer service was red carpet all the way. I’m glad to have worked with such professionals and friendly team. I would refer AmeriHome to my family, friends and loved ones.

This has been such a delightful process. The team that assisted in our Loan process was the best I have ever encountered. We were always aware of what was going on. The loan [officer] Sean Grote and his assistant Aryana Mata not only contacted us through email but also made personal phone calls to keep us informed. They made sure all our questions were answered. The processor Marie [Eliasson] that completed the loan was always available, very professional and a pleasure to work with. I will recommend this company!!!!!
