The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides great loan options for low to moderate income people who live in rural areas. USDA defines a rural area by open country, places with populations of 10,000 or less, and some cities and towns may fall under the category as well. USDA loans offer super low interest rates as well as no down payment required. Like a VA loan, USDA loans allow a borrower to finance up to 100% of a homes appraised value. In order to qualify for a USDA loan, one must be purchasing or refinancing a property that is in a USDA designated area and plan on occupying the residence in the transaction.
