How Can I Pay My Mortgage with AmeriFirst Home Mortgage?

Posted by Dan Moyle on Sat, Oct 1, 2016

Updated 10/01/16 to include our new Customer Care hours and phone number!

Home buyers with a mortgage loan through AmeriFirst Home Mortgage enjoy several benefits. One of them is local service. AmeriFirst retains servicing of most of its loans. We do not sell servicing to big banks. This means when you close with AmeriFirst Home Mortgage, you pay your mortgage to AmeriFirst. You can call us with questions and talk to the AmeriFirst Customer Care department. They're local, too. No call centers here.
