Homesteading is in the DNA of nearly every American. Available rural land space has shrunk since early settler times, yet many home buyers today still seek the country life and associated values that help make this country great and keep it strong.
Thrive Mortgage has a way to help you reach your dream of country living through the Rural Development Loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
USDA loans are guaranteed by the Federal Government and are only available to individuals and families looking to settle in USDA eligible rural areas. Loan applicants may have an income of up to 115% of the median income for the area in which they wish to settle. Qualifying families must be without adequate housing, but able to afford the mortgage payments, including taxes and insurance.
Loan terms are 30-years, and the lender sets the promissory note interest rate. Repayment feasibility is determined by the lender using ratios of repayment (gross) income to Principal, Interest, Taxes, and Insurance (PITI) and to total family debt.
