USDA Loans

You are likely familiar with well-known government-backed home loan programs like FHA or VA loans. But do you know about USDA loans? These loans are available to consumers who are purchasing homes in locations which the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines as "rural." With a USDA loan, you can enjoy some outstanding benefits.

What are USDA Loans?

A USDA loan is simply a mortgage which is insured by the USDA. Sometimes, you will see USDA Rural Housing Loans referred to as Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loans. That name is actually defunct, but they are still sometimes used interchangeably.

If you havent heard of USDA loans until now, do not be surprised. This program has not been around as long as some other government-backed mortgage programs, so quite a few homebuyers are not aware that they may have this option.

Benefits of USDA Loans

The advantages of USDA loans are comparable to those of other government-insured loans. Since the USDA stands behind them, lenders are guaranteed some degree of security. This translates to more flexible qualification requirements and more affordable mortgages.

USDA housing loans come with these advantages:

No down payment.

Affordable fixed interest rates.

Flexible credit qualification.

More cost-effective mortgage-insurance.

With a USDA housing loan, you can purchase a house, make repairs or improvements to an existing home, or even buy a vacant lot with the intent to build.

The maximum size for homes being purchased using a USDA-backed loan is 2,000 square feet, and it must be located in an eligible area.

USDA Loan Eligibility

For a Single Family Housing Guaranteed loan through the USDA, you will need to meet the following qualifications:

You must be legally be residing in the United States.

You must use the loan to buy a home which is in an area that fits the USDA's definition of "rural."

You must fall under the income threshold for the area as set by the USDA.

You should not automatically assume that you will not qualify for a USDA loan just because you are shopping for a house that isn't in the countryside. Any area which has a population of 35,000 or fewer people meets the eligibility guidelines.



What Can You Do With a USDA Loan?

USDA rural housing loans are very flexible. They are most often used to purchase homes, but they also can as a refinance. If you are looking to purchase land, a USDA loan may serve your needs as well.

We Can Help You Apply for a USDA Loan

You may have quite a few questions about USDA loans. Determining eligibility can be a little more complex for these types of loans than it is for FHA or VA loans since it can be hard to know whether the area you want to purchase in is considered "rural."

Premier Lending Corp has been helping customers throughout the Florida to successfully apply for USDA rural loans. We are intimately familiar with the USDA's rules, and can help you determine whether the home you want to purchase is in an eligible area or not. We can also look over your finances with you to determine whether you qualify based on your income.

You can begin the application process today by calling us at 954-840-8811. We look forward to scheduling your consultation and walking you through the USDA loan process.

Alex Digioia from Premier Lending Corp deserves all the recognition! When I received an offer to buy a condo in Miami with the buyer insisting on a quick sale transaction, I was met with doubt from other lenders. However, Alex's steady commitment and expertise turned the impossible into reality. He didn't just help; he went above and beyond, working late nights and ensuring every detail was taken care of. Alex's professionalism and dedication truly set him apart as one of the finest in Miami's lending industry. Thanks to his exceptional efforts, we managed to close in an astonishing 16 days, complete with a full condo review. If you're seeking a lender who not only delivers but exceeds expectations, look no further than Alex Digioia. He's a true asset, and I can't recommend him highly enough!

Jordan and Premier Lending Corp made the experience of buying my first home as easy as I could have imagined. He was there for me every step of the way and was available to answer any questions I had at all hours of the day. He is a true professional and very good at what he does. I was unbelievably satisfied with both the rate I received from Premier Lending and the customer service and responsiveness of all their associates. I plan on using Premier Lending again whenever I refinance my home. I highly recommend using their services.

Just closed on the sale of my home that I sold as a FSBO. Can’t thank Jordan enough for all the assistance he provided not only to the buyers, but also to me. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and offered multiple solutions when we encountered an issue with the appraisal. All parties were extremely satisfied. I highly recommend Jordan and the entire team at Premier Lending Corp!

Frank and his team have been amazing. We were with another lender that couldn’t get us to closing and as soon as we got introduced to Frank he had his team especially Alex reach out to us to get the process going. Within almost 2 weeks we closed on our first house! One of the things we loved about this group is that they always answered our questions, always kept us updated on our progress and always available when we needed them. Couldn’t have asked for a better mortgage team. Will definitely be recommending them to others that are looking to buy a home!

Jordan was greatly helpful and on top of his game. From the beginning, he was extremely responsive and dedicated time to educating us on every step of the home buying process. We had a closing period of 28 days and had no issues or concerns of closing within that time. The other staff members at Premier Lending were also knowledgeable and responded quickly to our calls and emails. Overall, working with Jordan was very easy and he helped us stay comfortable while purchasing our first home. We were satisfied with our experience and would recommend all homebuyers to work with Premier Lending, especially Jordan.

Alexis VanLandingham is by far the best in the game!! I highly recommend her to my clients in need of financing. She not only provides unwavering concierge service to my clients, which makes them feel like she is not just a business partner, but a friend. She also has been able to beat out competitive lenders on rates as well. If and when shopping for a home, you want Alexis in your corner! Trust me.
