The way we read the document, this is our “30 day notice” that as of the end of Business on September 30, 2013 – the map changes will go into effect. You must be fully approved as eligible under “today’s” guidelines by then.
On it could be a brand new deal for USDA Home Loans in NC!
It’s a great program for those seeking mortgage loan financing in a non-metro area of NC. The 3 basic requirements are that you have pretty good credit (640 is ideal), that the home is in an “Eligible Area” and your household income must be below the maximum level set for that County / Area.
Congress is considering two bills that would both extend the 1990 Census “footprint” for eligible areas until 2020. They differ on what population SIZE the community needed to be in the 2010 Census to qualify for the extension.
Our suggestion is that you begin TODAY working on your specific pre-qualifications for the program! Do not WAIT until August to find a house! With the latest “scare” that maps would change, underwriting times were as long as 30 days! The system is simply not built for that kind of stress, and changes to the USDA Home Loan Maps will affect almost 1/3 of North Carolina!
