USDA Loans

image The Guaranteed Rural Housing Loan Program is offered through the Rural Housing Service (RHS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The program offers assistance to low and moderate-income rural residents whose income is equal to or less than 115% of the area median income.

It was designed to assist qualifying rural residents with better access to affordable housing finance options with little or no down payment or out-of-pocket costs.

There are several advantages to using USDA’s Home Loan Program.

  • 100% Financing
  • Low Monthly Mortgage Insurance(MI)
  • Low Mortgage Interest Rates
  • Low Closing Costs
  • Never a Pre-payment Penalty with USDA

Am I really ready to buy?

Buying a home offers many advantages, one of the most significant being that it allows you to build equity (ownership) when you pay your mortgage each month. A common myth is that monthly mortgage payments are more expensive than rent. But, in many cases, mortgage payments can be even less than rent. When considering home ownership for the first time, you need to decide whether buying makes financial and practical sense for you right now or if you are better off renting. Consider both the advantages and disadvantages to renting as well as buying, and weigh the pros and cons for your particular situation. Purchasing a home is a very exciting time, and being well prepared will help you make better decisions.

Conventional Loans


30 Year Fixed

A 30 year fixed conventional loan is a loan that has the same mortgage payments for 360 months.

Conventional loans typically are harder to qualify for than FHA loans and require a slightly higher down payment. However, in some cases rates can be lower and have lower closing costs. Also, monthly mortgage insurance is usually less or can be nothing with 20% down payment.

20 Year Fixed

This type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 240 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid slightly faster than the 30 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the 30 year fixed rate loan. Some Lenders allow for a lessor rate.

15 Year Fixed

This type of loan is the same as the 30 year fixed rate loan except the life of the loan is 180 months as opposed to 360 months. Since the loan is being paid faster than either the 30 year fixed rate loan or the 20 year fixed rate loan, monthly payments for this type loan are higher than the other two loans. Generally, the longer a lender agrees to keep the interest rate “fixed”, the greater the risk to the lender, therefore, in most instances, interest rates on 15 year fixed rate loans are slightly lower than on 20 or 30 year fixed rate loans.

  • 5% down payment required on purchase
  • Minimum credit score – usually 620
  • Post- bankruptcy: can qualify after 4 years
  • Post-foreclosure: can qualify after 7 years
  • Post-shortsale: Can Qualify after 2 years (LTV restrictions may apply

Is buying a home or financially preparing yourself to buy a home on your radar for 2016? If so, the best way to ensure that you reach that goal is to be proactive and start working towards your goals as soon as you can.

Mortgage interest rates are currently still low and experts don’t believe that they will rise sharply anytime soon, so if you’re interested in buying a new home 2016 is likely to be a great year to do that! With rental markets around the country heating up, 2016 looks to also be a great year for those with homes to list on the market. Whether you’re just looking to get yourself ready to be in the position to buy sometime in the future, or looking to actually buy a home in 2016, there are a few key things you can do in order to set yourself up to qualify for the best rates, terms and mortgage programs available on the market today:

  1.        Familiarize yourself with the mortgage loan products and programs available. ARMs, conventional mortgages, FHA loans, USDA loans, VA loans – what is best for you and your family? Although a mortgage broker should be able to help you determine what mortgage product is best for you, it’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself a bit with your options. What is your long term and short term financial situation? Are you a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran? Are you looking at rural property, whether a farm or a home in the country? Once you’re able to map out some of the factors about yourself that may impact the mortgage loan programs you may qualify for, a lender can help you navigate the details of each program.
  2.        Down payments. Do you already have one? Will you have one? Will you even need one? Traditionally, buyers were expected to put down at least 20% of the purchase price of a home in cash. And for most buyers with conventional mortgages, that is still the case if they want to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, some lenders are becoming more flexible with their down payment terms today in order to attract more buyers and more business and are relaxing their down payment rules. Additionally, there are federally-backed loan programs like FHA and VA loans which can require down payments significantly less than 20% – in some cases these programs won’t require any down payment at all!

What’s your credit score? If you don’t know what’s on your credit report, or what your credit score is – check it out today! You can request your credit report for free once per year from each of the three major credit bureaus. This report won’t contain your score, but that can either be purchased or obtained from a prospective lender. It’s important to check your credit report on a regular basis for inaccurate information which might negatively impact your credit score. Generally, the higher your score, the better your rates and terms, so if your score could use some improvement get started on it today!
