What are USDA Home Loans?
USDA Home Loans are a type of mortgage loan that is offered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This loan program is designed to help low to moderate-income families purchase a home in rural and suburban areas. The USDA Home Loan program is unique because it offers 100% financing, which means you can purchase a home with no money down.
To be eligible for a USDA Home Loan, there are a few requirements you must meet. First, you must be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency. Second, the home you’re purchasing must be in a rural or suburban area as designated by the USDA. Third, your income cannot exceed the limits set by the USDA for your area. Finally, you must have a credit score of at least 640.
Advantages of USDA Home Loans
USDA Home Loans offer several advantages, including:
- 100% financing, meaning no down payment is required
- Flexible credit requirements
- No mortgage insurance requirement
- Low interest rates
- Fixed-rate mortgages with terms up to 30 years
- No prepayment penalty
