Yes You Can Buy Still With ZERO Down & No PMI

Sometimes good credit and a down payment are not enough to qualify for a home loan at a commercial lending institution, such as a bank, savings and loan or with a mortgage broker. That is why the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has provided a loan program that allows more rural families and individuals to be eligible to become homeowners with the help of a USDA guaranteed home loan. The USDA loan program allows
- 620 min credit score
- Up to 6% seller contributions
- No PMI (private mortgage insurance)
- Zero Down

However, the USDA-RD loan program has 2 main qualifying features:
(1) Eligibility is region or location specific CLICK HERE to check if an address is USDA Eligible.
(2) Eligibility is income specific. Qualifying income is based on household members and a max income cap. CLICK HERE to see if you qualify under the max income cap.

For more information on USDA qualifying criteria, please review this handout that I made that details the USDA program. USDA Handout For Home Buyers.
