USDA Rural Development Home Loans - 100% Financing Solution for Riverside County California

USDA Rural Development Loans - a 100% financing solution in 2011 for Riverside County Homebuyers

Riverside California Home Buyers still have access in many areas to a little known US Government Loan Program that offers 100% financing for the purchase of a Home in eligible areas.   USDA Eligible areas have been designated  as "Rural"  due to population density.  Strangely enough,  only non-farm residences can qualify.  The program is designed to help develop home buying options in less densely populated areas that may be underserved by mainstram home loans.   There are many areas in California that qualify for the USDA Rural Development Zero Down Payment Home Loan Program.  

With the USDA mortgage program, the borrower is not required to make a down payment nor are they required to Pay Mortgage Insurance Premium (aka MIP or PMI).

On a $250,000 home purchase, there are two areas that you save:  First, There is no downpayment requirement, so you will save $8,750 versus an FHA Loan, with the required FHA down payment of 3.5%.  Second,  Since there is no MIP, you will save $183/month in MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premium).   These two savings make this program a very attractive for first time homebuyers, as you can qualify for more home with the same payment and income.

There are three primary pre-requisites to qualify for the USDA Rural Development Home Loan in Riverside, California:

1.  Borrowers must qualify under the maximum household income cap

2. The home must be located in a USDA eligible region/address

3. All borrowers must have minimum 640 Credit Score


 Borrowers must not exceed the annual household income requirement     For example. a family of 1-4 must not exceed a household income greater than $76,600 annually in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.   I recommend a quick 5 minute phone call to discuss your ‘total household income' under USDA guidelines.   Contact Brian Skaar  760-752-4480. 

2  Borrowers must purchase a home in a USDA-RD approved region/address.  You can search by map or address.    Below is a link where you can by-pass the map and type in the physical address to get instant verification - Verify a USDA eligible address.   I always recommend that my clients work with a Real estate agent  that understands the USDA Rural Development Program.   From helping you find and locate a USDA  RD eligible home, to understanding the funding and closing process, it is key  that your agent understand this program.  There are many cities in Riverside County that qualify as Rural for USDA Loans,  you might be surprised how un-rural some of these eligible cities are!

3  USDA Credit Score Guidelines. The USDA program is about as "flexible" as any loan program available today. In some cases, borrowers may even qualify with collections, or a recent bankruptcy.  Most lenders do require a 640 minimum score now, however these details change.  call for updates.
