In search of a mortgage which allows you to move affordably into a new home with zero down? If the home you want to buy is in a rural location, you could be eligible for just that with a USDA mortgage in Kentucky.
A USDA mortgage is an income-based lending product that is backed by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Previously, this program was called the “Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan.”
The USDA’s insurance for these mortgages allows homebuyers who qualify for them to take advantage of fantastic benefits.
USDA mortgage benefits in Kentucky include:
Mortgage rates on USDA loans are fixed and comparatively low.
Closing costs for USDA loans are capped and generally affordable.
No down payment is necessary.
Private mortgage insurance (PMI), while needed, may be discounted to keep your monthly costs of homeownership as affordable as possible.
The credit score requirements for qualifying for a USDA loan are flexible.
You can apply for a USDA mortgage to build a home, buy a home, or purchase a vacant lot with the intention of constructing one. Upgrades and repairs also can be financed through USDA loans.
Whether you are shopping for home in the Louisville region or elsewhere in the state of Kentucky, these requirements must be met:
The first criteria is the location of the home to be financed. It must be in an area with a population of no more than 35,000. This may include areas that you do not traditionally think of as “rural,” but which are still defined as such by the USDA.
The next requirements is simply to be a US citizen, non-citizen national, or qualifying alien.
Finally, your income will be considered as well. There are maximum thresholds for each family size. So long as your income does not exceed the applicable threshold for your family size, you may be eligible for a USDA mortgage in Kentucky.
