Spend no money out of pocket with a USDA loan.
You heard us correctly, with a USDA loan you can purchase a home without spending a penny out of pocket.How a USDA Loan works:USDA loans are like any other government backed loan. USDA guarantees the loan in case of default by the borrower, allowing the lender to assume less risk. USDA sets the guidelines the lenders need to follow. Individual lenders might have different guidelines, like different credit score requirements. The USDA guidelines don’t call for any specific credit score. But finding a lender willing to take on a credit score of 500 will be nearly impossible.This is what is needed in order to qualify for USDA.
- Ability to prove income.
- A middle credit score of at least 620.
- The home being purchased has to be in a USDA eligible area.
- The household income has to be within USDA guidelines.
These USDA guidelines can be found by clicking on the following link. There are different income requirements for different counties, so make sure you do your research.

No Money Out Of Pocket!
Whats better then buying your dream house without spending a penny out of pocket?Well there might be a couple things but I’ll refrain from mentioning them.With the USDA loan you can make your dreams become a reality by buying your perfect home with out spending much at all. In the average home buying transaction with a USDA loan the only thing you should have to pay for out of pocket would be an appraisal and maybe a water test if the home you are purchasing has a well. You should be able to find a USDA lender that will not charge any upfront fees. If they do, shop around until you find one that doesn’t.An eligible home has to meet minimum HUD handbook guidelines. Just like an FHA or VA mortgage. So don’t let any one tell you different. There are not to many lenders that offer USDA loans. Many times loan officers will down play the USDA program or will lie just to make a dime. Forcing consumers that are purchasing USDA eligible homes with a FHA loan (Because there lending institution does not offer USDA loans).The mortgage insurance with FHA loan is more then 3 times as much as it costs on a USDA mortgage. Therefor comparing the same loan amount and interest rate, the payment will always be higher with a FHA loan.For further information on a USDA Rural Development home loan, feel free to contact a USDA loan specialist at USDALoans.net
