USDA loans help make owning a home more affordable for those living in eligible rural and suburban areas and with household incomes within the USDA limits.
This residential mortgage loan offers the opportunity for a home loan with zero down payment in eligible rural and suburban locations. USDA loans are issued through the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan Program.
USDA loans, also known as rural development loans, are an affordable mortgage option for buying a home in a qualifying rural or suburban area. They’re backed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, making them more accessible than other loan options. You can get a USDA loan as a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. If you already have a USDA loan, you can refinance it into a new USDA loan; however, you can't refinance with a USDA loan if you currently have a different loan type.
