Why is a USDA Home Purchase Loan A Great Deal?

The USDA still offers 100% financing that makes it the one of the most attractive purchase loans still out in the market, thanks to its overall low cost as well as flexible underwriting process that allows for compensating factors.

All USDA loans are run through an automated underwriting system called GUS (Government Underwriting System) in order to get an approval. In the event your file does not get a full approval through the GUS system, it’s possible for your loan to be manually underwritten by a person who can take certain things into consideration.

For example a high credit score, low debt to income ratio, or even assets can help offset negative factors on your application. A USDA lender may even consider other types of payment history like rent or utilities when making a decision on an approval. This common sense type of manual underwriting can make the difference when it comes time to get approved for your USDA loan. In addition to this, by not having a down payment requirement and being able to finance your closing costs you will literally save thousands at closing.

What About The USDA Funding Fee?

The USDA funding fee is collected by lenders at closing and is financed into the loan which helps offset the cost to fund the USDA program. There is also monthly mortgage insurance on all USDA home purchases.

Your monthly mortgage insurance will be .40% and 2.0% for the funding fee
