USDA Loans: The Single Family Guaranteed Loan Program

What are USDA loans? The USDA Loans was created to help approved lenders in providing low and moderate-income households the possibility to own adequate, modest, safe, and clean houses as their primary residence in eligible rural areas. This program provides a 90% loan note guarantee to approved lenders in order to reduce the risk of extending 100% loans to eligible rural home buyers. Sometimes called a “Rural Housing Loan” or a “Section 502” loan, there are a number of exurban and suburban neighborhoods nationwide in which USDA can be used. You may be surprised to know that a large number of Colorado counties have properties that fit the USDA’s requirements, including areas near Aurora, Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Greeley. Has come up with a down payment been a problem in the past and kept you from purchasing a house fret no more?
