USDA Rural Development in Payson AZ provides loans in rural areas to eligible low- and very low-income applicants. The loan may be to purchase existing housing, purchase and repair existing housing, purchase a building site and construct a dwelling, or purchase new housing. The property must be in good repair or placed in good repair with loan funds and must be energy efficient. A third-party home inspection is required for electrical, heating, plumbing, water and wastewater disposal systems, if applicable, and termite inspections. This third-party inspection must be performed by a qualified home inspector. The payments for costs associated with the inspections will be agreed upon between the buyer and the seller and should be discussed prior to signing a purchase agreement. Rural Development can provide additional guidance for these items as you proceed through the loan process.

Payson AZ USDA Home Loans General Guidelines:

Loans for new construction, purchase of new or existing dwellings, necessary repairs.
Homes must be located in rural communities. 

Clients may begin the application process with a Packaging Agency in partnership with Rural Development Staff, under a centralized process, allowing for faster processing timeframes, or by applying directly with Rural Development.

Must have acceptable credit demonstrating timely payment of obligations. Credit scores of 640 or greater are typically considered as acceptable with minimal acceptable trade lines. Credit scores below 640 may require additional credit analysis.

Homes must be considered “modest” which includes a standardized square footage determination. This is 2,000 square feet (above grade living space only). If circumstances require a larger square footage, the applicant must work with processing staff to determine if an exception may be justified and requested.

Competitive fixed rates—33 year loan terms. In some cases 38 year term may be available.

SOME CLIENTS MAY QUALIFY FOR SUBSIDIZED PAYMENTS—Interest rate may be subsidized to as low as 1 percent for qualified applicants, thereby making payments more affordable. These homeowners could have their subsidy subject to recapture upon selling, or paying off, their home. Subsidy is also subject to cancellation if a borrower ceases to occupy the property.

Homes must be structurally sound and functionally adequate. Homes will be inspected and repairs may be necessary. Costs for repairs may be included in the loan up to appraised value.
