Even if you do not consider your area “rural” you may be surprised to learn there are eligible properties nearby.
To qualify for a USDA Rural Housing loan a borrower must meet income (people who earn above a certain threshold are ineligible), credit, and employment requirements and be a US citizen, US non-citizen national, or a qualified alien.

Affordability USDA financing is one of the only mortgages available to the general public that offers zero down, other than those for members of the US military. It is a great option for anybody, since its one of the most overlooked loans — we at Cranbrook Loans highly recommend you ask if you qualify for a USDA loan. Mortgage insurance is not required and loans can be used to purchase or refinance. Monthly payments are kept affordable, thanks to the fact that the loans are 30-year fixed rate mortgages.
