USDA Loans in Kentucky.

What is Kentucky  USDA Rural Development Guarantee?

Kentucky USDA Rural Development Guarantee USDA loans offer 100% financing options on home purchases in rural areas of Kentucky.  Properties though can be located within city limits and in subdivisions depending on population density of that particular County of Kentucky. Jefferson and Fayette Counties, the two largest counties of Kentucky are not eligible for Rural Development Loans.

The Kentucky Rural Development  loan program is primarily used to help low to moderate income individuals or households to purchase homes and the applicants need to be within 115% of the median income for the area. Most counties will allow up to $82,700 for a family of four and up to $109,200 for a family of five or more for household incomes to be eligible for RHS loans.

Some areas of Northern Kentucky you can make more than that: see below

The base USDA income limits are for most Kentucky counties below:
  • 1-4 member household: $82,700
  • 5-8 member household: $109,150

Households with 1-4 members have different limits as households with 5-8. Similarly, applicants living in high-cost counties will have a higher income limit than those living in counties with a more average cost of living.

Things to look for in your  Rural Housing property search in Kentucky below:

  • Avoid homes in flood zones – RD is very restrictive for homes in flood zones. They will do them in flood zones just watch out for the costly premiums.
  • Avoid homes with cisterns – they are extremely difficult to get financed
  • Be aware that homes with wells and septic systems needed extra tests for contamination
  • Avoid homes with any income producing activities such as working farms, detached buildings with offices or car lifts for auto repairs, or anything else related to income producing activities.
  • Manufactured homes or doublewides must be brand new. No used mobile homes are allowed.
  • Must meet FHA standards on appraisals so watch out for this on older homes with crawl spaces. 
  • Must have a permanent heat source and no wood stoves as permanent heat sources
  • Homes that are in need of major repairs.
