Affordable living
in rural areas

Imagine owning a charming home in the peaceful countryside. USDA loans 
can turn this dream into reality.Backed by the United States Department 
of Agriculture, these loans are designed for those looking to buy homes 
in rural and suburban areas, making rural living more accessible and affordable.

At Simply Financial Inc, we’re here to help you understand USDA loans and guide you through the process.

Rural and Suburban Focus

USDA loans are specifically designed to support homebuyers 
in eligible rural and suburban areas. The program aims to boost homeownership in these regions, which may have limited access to affordable financing options.
The focus on rural and suburban areas helps stimulate economic growth in these communities by encouraging investment in housing.

No Down Payment

Perhaps one of the most attractive features of USDA loans is the ability to purchase a home without making a down payment.
This can be a game-changer for many potential homebuyers, especially first-time buyers who may not have substantial savings. Saving for a down payment can be a significant hurdle to homeownership, and USDA loans remove that barrier, making it easier for families to achieve their homeownership goals.

Competitive 
Interest Rates

USDA loans typically offer competitive interest rates that are 
in line with those available for conventional mortgages. These favorable rates help borrowers secure manageable monthly payments, making homeownership more affordable over the life 
of the loan.
It’s important to note that interest rates can vary depending 
on market conditions and the lender.

Income Limits

USDA loans have income limits that are based on the median income in the area where the home is located.
These limits ensure that the program primarily benefits individuals and families with moderate incomes. While the income limits vary by location and family size, they are designed to target assistance to those who need it most, creating a fair and equitable system for borrowers.

Property Eligibility

To qualify for a USDA loan, the property you intend to purchase must meet specific criteria established by the USDA.
These criteria include location requirements, as the property must be situated in an eligible rural or suburban area. Additionally, the home must meet certain safety and livability standards to ensure that borrowers are purchasing properties that provide a suitable and secure living environment.

Mortgage Insurance

USDA loans require mortgage insurance to protect the lender in case the borrower defaults on the loan.
While this is a common feature of government-backed mortgages, such as FHA and VA loans, the mortgage insurance premiums for USDA loans are typically lower than those for private mortgage insurance (PMI) on conventional loans. This can result in lower overall monthly housing costs for borrowers.
