Current Home Mortgage Rates after the election of President Donald Trump are still at an all time low.  Mortgage rates have been steadily going up since the new year and many borrowers are waiting for that big correction.

This year has been the year where NON-QM Loans and many no doc mortgage loan programs have hit the market. Bank Statement Mortgage Loan programs for self employed borrowers are now very popular.
