USDA Loans

The USDA rural program in Georgia offers several benefits for potential homebuyers. First, the minimum FICO score required is 550, which allows individuals with lower credit scores to qualify for a loan. The program allows for non-traditional credit, meaning that individuals without a traditional credit history can still be considered for a loan.

One of the advantages of this program is that gift funds can be used for both the down payment and closing costs. This can be particularly helpful for first-time homebuyers who may not have enough savings to cover these expenses. There is no requirement for cash reserves, which means that borrowers do not need to have a certain amount of money saved up before applying for the loan.

  • 550 FICO Min.
  • Non-Traditional Credit Allowed
  • Gift Funds Can be Used for Down Payment and/or Closing Cost
  • No Cash Reserves Required
  • No Mortgage Insurance (MI)
  • Seller Contribution Up to 6%
  • Available for Purchase, Rate/Term amd Streamline R/T

Another significant benefit of the USDA Home Loans program in Georgia is that it does not require mortgage insurance (MI). Mortgage insurance is typically required for loans with a down payment of less than 20%, but this program eliminates that additional cost for borrowers.

Sellers are allowed to contribute up to 6% of the purchase price towards the buyer’s closing costs. This can help reduce the upfront expenses for the buyer and make homeownership more affordable.
