United States Department of Agriculture Loans/Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan Program - sometimes called a “Section 502” loan
Whether buying a new construction, condo, town home, manufactured, short sale and foreclosed homes, securing a USDA Loan can save you thousands of dollars and get you into your home a lot sooner than you may have thought.
What is the USDA Loan Program?
A USDA Loan is specifically designed for home buyers looking to purchase eligible homes in rural and suburban locations. The beauty of this particular mortgage is that it offers 100% financing with no down payment. Whether you're a first-time home buyer and or have previously purchased a home, you could be eligible to take advantage of a USDA Loan.
Home Buyer Eligibility?
you must be a US Citizen or permanent resident
Lower to moderate income families and those with blemished credit may qualify
So under the USDA there is no need for a down payment but what about your closing costs? Well, there are ways around receiving assistance with your closing costs!
there maybe the option of taking a bigger loan amount to pay for your closing costs if the appraised value of the home is higher than the purchase price. As a guide, if the sale price is $200,000 and the appraised value is $205,000 - $5,000 is the extra loan amount available to pay for your closing costs.
some sellers offer to contribute towards the buyer's closing costs
the lender may offer you the option of a slightly higher interest rate which would give you access to additional funds. For instance, lets say the interest rate is 4% with no credit - but if the interest rate rises slightly to 4.25% there would be an amount of $3k to pay your closing costs
financial assistance from members of your family - Gift Funds - can be used to put towards your closing costs or pay all of your closing costs.
Not all homes for sale can be purchased with a USDA Loan. For assistance with finding eligible homes and a Lender, please contact me:

Can I Afford the House I want?One mistake young homeowners make is ove
"Steve Humphries was great to work with. Personable and knowledgeable. He helped us zero in on homes that met our criteria for a vacation rental property and negotiate the minimum price that actually got us the house. It is now a profitable, positive cash flow property that has already had an uptick in value. Steve was very helpful to us as Canadians buying in the US in terms of providing advice we needed and accommodating our last minute travel schedule. I expect to use Steve again personally for any additional revenue homes in the Davenport & Champions Gate area and have recommended him to friends. Well done Steve!"
