USDA Loan Program
The USDA program is a part of the USDA Rural Development’s efforts to improve the quality of life in rural areas. The program helps low and moderate income families living in rural areas to purchase a home. When purchasing a property if the sales price is lower than the appraised value, closing costs may be financed into the loan amount up to the sum of the appraised value plus guarantee fee. For a property to be eligible for the USDA loan the property must be located in a qualified area.
