What is a USDA Loan?

  • USDA home loans, also known as rural development loans, are loans issued by the US government. To help families who may not quality for conventional loans or have the same lending options as those in larger cities, the US government issues these loans through approved private lenders.

  • With a USDA loan, the family can borrow up to 100% of the home’s appraisal, meaning no down payment is needed. The loan is set for a 30-year fixed rate home loan, and requires no mortgage insurance.
