Lower USDA Fees

Good news!

 

Both the upfront guarantee fee and annual fee (collectively the “fee schedule”) for purchase and refinance using USDA Rural Development’s home loan program will decrease on October 1, 2016, the first day of fiscal year 2017.

 

The upfront guarantee fee will drop from 2.75% to 1%, and the annual fee from 0.5% to 0.35%.

 

This could possibly mean more buying power! Income limits and credit approval will apply, but this could be a wonderful opportunity for anyone you know considering buying a home in an approved rural area.

Rural Development Loans – USDA

USDA Rural Development Loans

What’s So Great About USDA Loans?

Answer: 100% financing.

The USDA rural development loan program is a program designed to make rural housing more affordable. USDA loan program eligibility depends upon applicant income and the purchase property location. With USDA rural development loans, you can finance 100% of the home value with no down payment.

USDA Program Changing Next March

On October 1, 2012, the USDA was expected to revise its definition of “rural”. This revision would have made USDA rural development funding more restrictive. Eligibility would have been limited to communities with a population less than 20,000 not located within a MSA (metropolitan statistical area). Half the rural population in America lives within a MSA and would be ineligible for the USDA rural development loan program if this change had been implemented.  These changes are now delayed until March 27, 2013.

Communities in Wisconsin that could be affected if the change is implemented next March include: Burlington, Hartford, Muskego, Port Washington, Portage, River Falls, Stoughton, Sussex, Vernon, and Waunakee. A very large number of Florida communities could be affected as well. For a complete list of communities that may potentially be affected by tighter rural development eligibility restrictions click here.

How do I check if my home is USDA / Rural Housing-eligible?

With the USDA Rural Housing Program, your home must be located in a rural area. However, the USDA’s definition of “rural” is quite liberal. Many small towns meet the USDA requirements, as do suburbs and exurbs of most major U.S. cities. Click here to check your home’s USDA loan eligibility.

What is the USDA program’s minimum downpayment?

The USDA has no down payment requirement. You can finance 100% with a USDA loan.

Is the USDA loan program limited to first-time buyers?

No, the USDA Rural Housing Program can be used by first-time buyers and repeat buyers.

What mortgage products are available with a USDA mortgage?

The USDA / Rural Housing Program offers 30-year fixed rate mortgages only. There is no 15-year fixed rate mortgage and no adjustable-rate mortgages.
