US Department of Agriculture

USDA offers two types of loan “guarantee” programs. The first, called DIRECT lending is for extreme low income families and it has payment subsidy and recapture clauses. This loan is not very common.

The second loan program called GRH loans is the primary loan program sponsored by the Dept of Agriculture. Bt don’t let the name fool you. This program is not simply for totally Rural areas. It is primarily offered in communities of less than 20,000 residents but there are many places in NC that this program is a great alternative.

This is a fixed rate program only and it has a Funding fee just like the other two Government sponsored programs of FHA and VA. This program, unlike FHA and VA DOES have income limits. This is the only program where the property AND the borrower must be acceptable. This loan, like VA, does NOT have monthly mortgage insurance and also like VA it will allow the borrower to obtain 100% financing.

This program also has a feature similar to the FHA 203k streamline where some monies may be added for repairs/renovations that do not impact the safety or livability of a home.

Ask us if you qualify? It’s a simple process and you may be closer than you think.

 

What people are saying

We've used David Tyndall and Mortgage Choice twice now -- once for a refinance and once for a purchase of a place at the beach. Both experiences have been perfect. David walked us through the maze that is now the mortgage industry, anticipating potential problems before they occurred and managing those that did without any stress to us. I wouldn't consider doing a mortgage without him. And in addition to his professional expertise, he's just a great guy to work with. Do yourself a favor if you have needs in the mortgage arena, and hire Mortgage Choice.
