Union Home Mortgage Recognized as Top 5 Lender for USDA Rural Development Program in Pennsylvania

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – June 15, 2021 - Union Home Mortgage (UHM), a high-growth, full-service retail, wholesale and consumer direct independent mortgage banking company, ranked in the top 5 in Pennsylvania in terms of loan volume for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development’s Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program for 2020. The 100% financing program helps lenders work with eligible households living in rural areas to make homeownership a reality.


“This recognition is a testament to the commitment of our local UHM Partners to understanding customers’ unique needs and helping them select the lending solution to best achieve their personal goals,” said Rick Cardinali, UHM’s regional manager in Pennsylvania. “Everything we do is underpinned by the belief that homeownership should be accessible to everyone, and the USDA loans make that possible for many of our customers.”


The announcement coincides with the celebration of National Home Ownership Month, which occurs every June.


The USDA Rural Development Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program provides eligible applicants mortgage options that require no money down when purchasing a primary residence. More information on the loan program is available from the USDA.


This latest recognition further strengthens UHM’s position as a leading lender of USDA programs within its footprint. Last year, UHM ranked 11th nationally and claimed the top spot in Ohio in the same USDA Rural Development loan program category.

The company has grown its loan production from just over $1.5 billion in 2015 to more than $13 billion today.
