USDA Home Loan Advantages
A USDA mortgage loan is backed through the government and guaranteed through the United States Department of Agriculture, or USDA. The primary objective of this program and financing option is to promote property ownership in the rural areas of Orem, UT. Since its inception, the USDA Guaranteed Loan Program has provided countless opportunities for homeownership to individuals who would otherwise never qualify for conventional lending options.
USDA mortgage loans have several benefits for the homeowner that are unavailable to standard home and FHA loans. These advantages include:
Financing Your PMI – You have the ability to roll the required premium, which is 2% of the loan amount, into your financing with a USDA loan.
Reduced Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) – When a borrower cannot provide a minimum down payment of 80% of the loan-to-value, regardless of the kind of loan it is, PMI is required. If a borrower takes advantage of the no down payment associated with a USDA loan, they’ll be paying for PMI at a reduced rate compared to other loans.
No down payment required– One of the biggest obstacles that home buyers face when purchasing a home is accumulating the funds required for a down payment. USDA loans remove this hurdle because down payments are not required.
Lower Interest Rate – With USDA mortgage loans, borrowers are given lower interest rates that are not based upon their credit scores or down payment amount. This is because USDA mortgage loans are backed and insured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, so the rates are guaranteed to be low.
Flexible Credit Requirements – The USDA loan program allows borrowers with less-than-ideal credit to qualify for USDA financing.
