What is a USDA Rural Housing Loan?
USDA Home Loans provide No Money Down financing for a home purchase or Home
refinance. USDA rural housing loans are guaranteed by the USDA. There are many
qualifying factors for a USDA home loan, things such as income limits and loan amount
may limit eligibility.
Houses must be located in areas that meet USDA rural housing guidelines for “rural”.
You may be suprised at some of the areas that are considered rural areas by USDA.
If you live in large cities in Utah like Salt Lake, Ogden or Provo, you can sure they will
not fit in this program. However many cities and towns do qualify.
The best way to find out if your area meets USDA rural housing is to got to the USDA Rural Housing Property lookup. Or simply call or email me and I will let you know.
