For those looking to plant roots outside of the city and embrace a country lifestyle, a USDA loan can provide 100% financing (thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture) and some of the most flexible terms to boot.
- 0% down payment
- Credit scores as low as 580 may be accepted
- Low- to moderate-income households may qualify
- Available for rural properties only
- Available for US citizens, non-citizen US nationals, and qualified permanent resident aliens
When country life calls, USDA loans answer.
Pro tip: USDA loans are a viable option for more than purchasing land or building a home. USDA loans can also be used for mobile-home relocations and partial to complete rehabilitations for those who qualify.
