How USDA loan programs work


There are three USDA home loan programs:


Loan guarantees: The USDA guarantees a mortgage issued by a participating local lender — similar to an FHA loan and VA-backed loans — allowing you to get low mortgage interest rates, even without a down payment. If you put little or no money down, you will have to pay a mortgage insurance premium, though.


Direct loans: Issued by the USDA, these mortgages are for low- and very low-income applicants. Income thresholds vary by region. With subsidies, interest rates can be as low as 1%.


Home improvement loans and grants: These loans or outright financial awards permit homeowners to repair or upgrade their homes. 


Qualifying for a USDA-backed mortgage guarantee

Income limits to qualify for a home loan guarantee vary by location and depend on household size. To find the loan guarantee income limit for the county where you live, consult this USDA map and table.


USDA guaranteed home loans can fund only owner-occupied primary residences. Other eligibility requirements include:


  • U.S. citizenship (or permanent residency)
  • A monthly payment — including principal, interest, insurance and taxes — that’s 29% or less of your monthly income. Other monthly debt payments you make cannot exceed 41% of your income. However, the USDA will consider higher debt ratios if you have a credit score above 680.
  • Dependable income, typically for a minimum of 24 months
  • An acceptable credit history, with no accounts converted to collections within the last 12 months, among other criteria. If you can prove that your credit was affected by circumstances that were temporary or outside of your control, including a medical emergency, you may still qualify.

The USDA purchase home loan program is perfect for those homebuyers with no money for the down payment. Watch the above video to locate the approved lending area in the county in which you are looking to buy in.

The benefits to this program are: 
  • No money for the down payment (will have to come in with a little money to open escrow with and you will have to discuss that amount with your agent)
  • This benefit has to be by far one of the best reason to explore the USDA program, if the appraised value comes in higher than the agreed purchase amount, we can use that extra equity to finance your closing closet.
  • Also, if elected the seller can contribute up to 6% of the purchase amount towards the buyers closing cost
  • No limited to first time homebuyers, can not own or be on title of any other residential property at the time of closing escrow on the USDA loan
  • No prepay penalty, can pay off the loan ay any time with a penalty of doing so
  • Very small monthly mortgage insurance, the MI will remain through the term of the loan
  • No Maximum purchase amount, still need to qualify for the payment within the required debt to income ratio requirements
  • Primary purchase only, can not be used to buy a 2nd or investment property
There are income requirements that are determined by the numbers of dependents that will be living in the property and by which county the home is located in, click HERE to see what are the income limits and we use the "MOD.INC-GUAR.LOAN" line. If you feel you meet the income limit in the county, then you are one step closer in buying a house utilzing the USDA purchase home loan program.

The debt to income ratio is based on the monthly gross income claimed on your federal tax returns. The debts are based on what your credit report reports as debt, also the new house payment and any other debt such as child support, alimony and any deductions that are on your pay-stub, we will need to review all your income and credit documentation to determine that ratios meet USDA underwriting guidelines.

Also, determining on what your middle credit is you may not need reserve assets, what this is 2 months liquid cash that you will have on hand after closing escrow and the 2 months is of the total monthly mortgage payment. Having a higher credit score with reflect a compensating factor that you may not need to have reserves (based on a set middle credit scores, which can change without notice, that is why we need to review at the time of application).
