Understanding USDA Mortgages

A Pathway to Rural Homeownership

At Impact Mortgage Group, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to own a home, regardless of where they choose to live. If you're dreaming of a home in a rural or suburban area, a USDA mortgage could be your key to homeownership. Let's explore what a USDA mortgage is and how it could benefit you.

What is a USDA Mortgage?

A USDA mortgage, also known as a USDA Rural Development Loan, is a type of home loan backed by the United States Department of Agriculture. It's designed to make homeownership more accessible to those who wish to purchase a home in qualifying rural and suburban areas.

Key Benefits of USDA Mortgages

No Down Payment Required
One of the most appealing aspects of a USDA mortgage is the potential for 100% financing, meaning you don't need to make a down payment. This can make homeownership more attainable, especially for first-time homebuyers.

Low Interest Rates
USDA mortgages often come with lower interest rates compared to conventional loans. This means lower monthly mortgage payments and potentially saving thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.

Flexible Credit Guidelines
USDA loans typically have more flexible credit requirements than conventional loans, which can make qualifying easier if you have less-than-perfect credit.

Use for New and Existing Homes
You can use a USDA loan to purchase a new construction home, an existing home, or even to refinance your current mortgage.
