- USDA Zero Down Loan:
- The U.S. Department of Agriculture offers a variety of programs to help low to moderate-income individuals living in small towns or rural areas achieve homeownership. The Rural Housing Service (RHS) helps qualifying applicants, who cannot receive credit from other sources, purchase modestly priced homes as their primary residence.
RHS Loans are an attractive option because:
- 580 Minimum Credit Score
- Minimal closing cost
- Low or no down payment
- Seller is allowed to pay all your closing costs
RHS loans can be used toward the purchase and renovation of a previously owned home or a new construction. Families must be able to pay their monthly mortgage, homeowner’s insurance and property taxes.
