In NC, we have some big cities… but we get rural fast! I can’t tell you how many people, dispite the cost of gas, who say, “I’m just lookin’ for some land!” or “I can’t stand those little ‘Barbie Doll’ houses sitting right next to each other!”
Well, if you’re looking to buy a rural home, we can help you learn about the benefits and features of purchasing a home by using the USDA Guaranteed Rural Home Loan.
But if you’re looking to finance a horse farm, you might want to read this first!
The USDA Guaranteed Rural Home Loan program was created to help low to moderate income families buy homes in designated rural areas with 100% financing. It really provides people with the most cost efficient way to finance a home
Beginning in 2012, USDA charges an Upfront Mortgage Insurance / PMI / Guarantee fee, and an Annual Insurance Fee that is collected Monthly. The new upfront fee (it’s their form of mortgage insurance) is 2%, and this can be added to the loan amount, or paid by someone else. So if you are borrowing $100,000 you will have your principal and interest payment calculated at $102,000. In addition to that, there’s an annual Insurance fee of .3% which is collected monthly. We can give you some more information about the new USDA PMI Charges here.
There are income limits, and in Wake County a family of four can not make more than $91,850.
The loans are designed for RURAL AREAS… but all of Johnston County, Chatham County and much of the Western Wake County area are open to the Program.
