· A 100% USDA HOME MORTGAGE will also allow closing costs and prepaid costs to be added to the  home loan amount if the home appraises for an amount greater than the homes sales price. This home loan is unique in that other types of financing base their maximum allowed LTV (loan to value) on the sales price or appraised value whichever is less.

QUICK FACTS

The USDA LOAN is fast and easy. Here is just a few of the highlights that make it the RIGHT CHOICE!

· TRULY A 100% HOME MORTGAGE

Closing cost, some repairs, etc. may be financed into the loan up to 100% of the appraised value plus the guarantee fee.

· NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE INSURANCE

Monthly mortgage insurance can be very expensive to the borrower. The higher the mortgage insurance premium the less priced home a borrower may be able to obtain. USDA Home Loans offers more affordable terms allowing borrowers to qualify for more home for their money.

· FLEXIBLE CREDIT

Excellent credit is not required. Minimum 620 credit score or greater may be required. Qualifying ratios have been expanded to 29/41.

· FLEXIBLE INSPECTIONS

USDA Rural Development does not look for cosmetic problems, however the appraiser/inspector may recommend additional inspections. In case repairs are required these must be completed before Rural Development will issue a Guarantee on the loan. Typically, FHA and VA are more restrictive!

· PROPERTY ELIGIBILITY

No mobile homes, manufactured housing, or working farms are ineligible. County and address determine home eligibility. Home must be owner occupied. Second homes, commercial property and rental property are not eligibly.
