USDA Loan: USDA Mortgage Rural Development Loan
One of the best kept secrets in the home buying market is the USDA Loan. Don’t let the name fool you – its not just for properties in “uncivilized” America.
A USDA (also know as the Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan Program) home loan is a zero down-payment mortgage for eligible rural and suburban homebuyers.
Why choose a USDA Loan?
- Other than the VA loan, which is strictly for Veterans, USDA is the only loan that offers 100% financing.
- The USDA loan offers lower monthly mortgage insurance, netting a lower monthly payment.
- Less strict underwriting guidelines, including options for low or no credit scores.
- Alternative forms of credit may be used to qualify
Who may apply for this USDA Mortgage Loan Program?
All Rural Home Loan Applicants must:
- Agree to personally occupy the dwelling as their primary residence
- Be a U.S. Citizen, U.S. non-citizen national or Qualified Alien
- Have the legal capacity to incur the loan obligation
- Have not been suspended or debarred from federal programs
- Demonstrate the willingness to meet credit obligations in a timely manner
- Purchase a property that meets all program criteria
