MANY people we talk to love Wake Forest – and they know this is the “small town” they want to live in! One of the best programs for first time home buyers is the program known as USDA Home Loans Wake Forest and Rolesville NC, which offers very low mortgage interest rates.
These are 100%, no money down loans, that are more affordable because they also have very low Monthly USDA PMI (which makes them cheaper on a monthly basis than FHA), and in most of the cases we see… the SELLER is paying some of the Closing Costs!
Unfortunately USDA Home Loan Eligibility Maps for Wake Forest and Rolesville NC could be changing at the end of 2020, and several of the areas that currently qualify for the program will lose it.
What is the USDA Home Loan Eligibility Map?
To purchase a home with the USDA Home Loans Wake Forest program, the property must be located within the USDA Home Loan Eligibility Map “footprint.” Meaning it must be “officially” located within an area that USDA says is “rural.” USDA Home Loan Maps have been “fixin’ to get ready to change” since 2012. Congress kicked the can on deciding what is Rural, so the next MAJOR change is now scheduled for 2020… HOWEVER, each year, as new Census data is released, more streets and neighborhoods in and around Wake Forest will see changes to the maps about every six months.
To qualify for USDA Home Loans in NC, in general:
- you need to have two credit scores that are between 600 and 640
- you need to be under the maximum income limit set for your area
- the property needs to be within the Eligibility Maps for the USDA no money down home loans program!
