USDA Home Mortgage

Asked by Homebody, Corpus Christi, TX Sun Apr 3, 2011

We have been preapproved to get a usda mortgage loan. The loan officer said we can now get a real estate agent to start looking for homes for us in Odem, Tx.... What real estate agents are available for this?

Any licensed real estate agent in Texas can help you. But, it helps if you have one who is experienced with USDA loans. Look for a certification like TAHS, Texas Affordable Housing Specialist. And, view the website below. USDA is a great loan program, but has both geographic boundaries and buyer perameters. You must meet both to qualify.
Have a blessed day!

Same agent but make sure when you do find a house you like that you check on the USDA website that it qualifies. There are areas around Austin like Leander, Hutto and Pflugerville that qualify for USDA but some parts of those cities do not. So make sure the home you like is approved. Just because it is in a USDA approved location does not mean 100% the home qualifies.

Good luck with your search.

You use the same kind of agent. Just make sure you and your agent use this link to verify that the property is in an eligible area.
