USDA homes are any that fit the geographic areas as USDA determines that. Your best bet would be to check out the USDA site below and see what areas you may be interested in fit their guidelines.
There are also income caps, so you might want to make sure you qualify as well as the home for a USDA loan.

If you are looking to buy a home in Edge Water a $600 fee if you are referring to a HOA fee $600 dollars is a great low monthly fee to have in that area.

Yeah, you'd have to contact your agent. And even at that, some items it won't let us change.

This topic was recently discussed on an FPL forum for best way to save money on the power bill yet keep mold from the humidity from growing too high. Mold is the concern, as a closed house in Florida will become very moist with no AC running. Here is what they said on the FPL post

"You can prevent mold from developing in your vacant home by controlling the indoor relative humidity (RH). To manage RH, use a programmable thermostat to run your air conditioner at 72° for just two hours each morning before sunrise and at 88° the rest of the time. This will prevent mold by removing moisture from the air during the cooler hours when RH is highest and your A/C runs most efficiently."

There's no harm in trying....what's the worst that can happen?

On the other hand, don't expect much for $40,000 and understand that repairs and renovations will add up quickly. Additionally, be sure the HOA is solid financially sound and that there are no BIG hidden assessments waiting for you.

Good luck,

Try Beachside Realty in New Smyrna Beach- I think they have a few for sale- would make great snowbird place- cheap but nice. No amenities or places for kids to play. Some forclosures are coming up too. Ir would actually make a great 55+ if any developer/investor ever took any iinterest in pursuing. 4 miles to beach, a couple blocks to the River and boat ramps. ... more

I agree with Ron, I do not understand why a lease option would make you feel better than a lease. If you think your situation is bad now just put up a bunch of money or overpay for a home using this method and then have a mortgage underwriter reject your application 3 years from now because the way the contract is written doesn’t match mortgage guidelines. It doesn’t matter what you and the seller agree to, the underwriter is going to follow the guidelines. Keep your option money and find a lease, good luck,
