It depends on the loan program. Every loan has a different buyer.

No, each loan program is independent of each other.

Hi Erica88,

The home has to be located in an eligible area AND it has to pass FHA/HUD safety and health requirements to qualify for a USDA mortgage. The fact that a home is owned by Fannie Mae doesn't matter except from the stand point that a lot of foreclosures need some type of work or rehab and may not meet FHA, VA or USDA standards.

No home sare automatically approved by USDA, it is their condition and location that determines if you can get a usda loan. A good buyer broker can easily guide you and provide a list of listings to drive by and see.
