A lot has changed over the course of the past year – how we live, work and learn have altered as we navigate through a post-pandemic world. Amongst all the changes, there’s been a constant: home. As home becomes more infused within our daily lives, lenders are doing their part to ensure options are available to everyone, specifically low-to-middle income earners, to ensure the dream of homeownership is within reach.
As for Union Home Mortgage, this has given us the opportunity to learn from uncertain circumstances. We’ve developed a better understanding of the needs of our customers and home buying journey in an ever-changing world.
What are USDA Loans?
USDA loans are home loans that provide an opportunity to people with lower incomes to live in rural, less populated areas. The U.S. Department of Agriculture provides Rural Development Programs to assist in Financing with no money down.
One of the more popular USDA programs is the Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. This initiative helps promote rural development to those individuals who may not have otherwise considered rural living or thought that residency outside city limits was possible.
This gives those living in large metropolitan areas the opportunity to find their dream home, without having to spend years saving money for a down payment. While there are requirements to get a USDA loan, you can check the rates and explore your options for better, brighter housing.
