You can always apply for a different type of loan. I know a great lender that could answer all your questions & let you know where you stand. I could help you find out how much equity you might have in your current home. My cell is 570-881-1343 or office 570-842-1010 x 110.

If someone already owns a home in the same area and it IS suitable, doesn't that preclude someone from buying a new home?

Hello Yahaira,

Joseph is not correct. USDA allows for refinances so anyone that refinances already owns a home. USDA requires that you do not own a suitable home within the community or owns one that is not structurally sound or functionally adequate. Within the community generally means within a one hour commute. Examples of not funtionaly adequate is 2 bedrooms three children....not handicapped accessible and a family member has disablities.

The USDA loan program is designed for people who do not currently own a home.
