USDA Loans are administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for citizens, including veterans, with lower incomes to purchase homes and land in rural areas. To qualify, the property must be in a predefined eligibility zone. To see if a USDA Loan may be right for you, contact your local lender to discuss the pros and cons of this loan type.

Federal Housing Administration loans can be used by a variety of citizens, including veterans, for purchasing and improving “fixer uppers.” Other FHA loans are offered specifically for senior citizens, first-time homebuyers, or those looking to purchase a home and make energy efficiency improvements. A FHA loan does not offer the no-down payment mortgage option and comes with a form of mortgage insurance that borrowers pay both up front and monthly. Any good loan officer can help you decide if this loan product is right for you.
