    Even today most  Florida homebuyers have never heard of the USDA home loan. When the housing boom was going on back in 2004-2007 there were many options for homebuyers to get 100% mortgage financing... oh how things have changed. Today only two 100% home loan options remain, the USDA and VA home loans. To obtain a VA mortgage a home buyer must be past or present military. So for civilians.. there leaves only one 100% home loan option here in FL, the USDA Rural Development loan.

    So exactly what is the USDA home loan?  You may ask yourself, I thought USDA had to do with beef?  Actually they do, but the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) also has the division of Rural Development. The goal is to help Florida's rural communities expand by offering homeownership opportunities in Florida's with NO down payment needed. The great thing is that many popular locations just outside of the major Florida cities (Naples, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Sarasota, Daytona Beach, Lakeland, Pensacola) do qualify. In addition, the property being purchased can be any single family home (by owner, short sale, foreclosure, bank owned, etc) regardless of the seller. The USDA loan program is a 100% government backed 30 year fix loan available to all Florida's homebuyers, not just first time home owners.

    The USDA Rural Housing programs does have certain eligibility requirements like property location and household income, please click the unlined links for more information. In addition to the eligibility requirements, USDA (like any loan) has qualifying requirements related to credit, etc. Below we have listed some of the requirements.

    1. Min credit score of 640. No bankruptcy in last 3 years.
    2. Stable 2 year job history ( does not apply to recent college grads)
    3. Single family homes located in eligible locations. No mobile or manufactured homes.

  • 100% USDA Rural Development Loan Summery

    Florida has been regarded as a prime spot for residences and business establishments alike. The Sunshine State delivers just about anything the whole world can offer. With a population close to 19 million made up of a diversity of races, Floridians have a continuous need for homes to call their own.

    The USDA has two loan programs for single family households available for Florida's rural areas.

    USDA Direct Rural Housing Loans

    Designed For:

    Very Low Income Household - These are households with an area median income (AMI) of below 50%.

    Low Income Household - These are households with an area median income (AMI) between 50 and 80%.

    Moderate Income Household - These are households with an area median income (AMI) between 50 and 80%.


    No down payment

    Low monthly mortgage insurance

    Low closing costs which can also be included in the loan depending on the appraisal

    USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing Loans

    Designed For:

    Higher Income Household - These are households with an income not higher than 115% of the median household income for the area.


    100% home purchase financing

    Low monthly mortgage insurance

    Low closing costs which can also be included in the loan depending on the

    Fixed rate 30-year term

    Eligibility factors for a USDA loan and other information

    To qualify for a USDA loan in Florida;

    1. An applicant's monthly housing costs have to meet 29 percent of his or her gross monthly income. That means the applicant's property taxes, mortgage principal and interest, as well as insurance must be of a 29% ratio to the gross monthly income.
    2. Most lenders will require a 620 Fair Isaac Company (FICO) credit score.
    3. It's a safe assumption the credit backgrounds will be checked.
    4. Applicants or families have to be of inadequate housing. However, they also have to be capable of paying the monthly mortgage including taxes and insurance.
    5. Applicants need to have sufficient income to be able to pay their housing costs including all monthly debts at a 41% ratio.

    There isn't any set maximum loan amount but your debt-to-income ratios (29/41 ratios) are going to be the determining factors regarding how much an eligible applicant can get. The information for the maximum loanable amount that an applicant can borrow in Florida can be found at http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/SupportDocuments/FL%20Direct.pdf.

    In financing, the maximum loanable amount isn 100%. Furthermore, a 2% USDA RD Loan guarantee fee is added to the loan instead of being a separate payment that will have to come out of the borrower's pocket. This then makes it a total of 102%.

    It is hoped that this information sheds light to all of you who have plans of making a home in designated rural areas of Florida.
