2017 KY USDA Rural Housing Income Limits for Kentucky Counties Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

2017 Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

  • 30 year fixed rate only for Purchases and Existing USDA loans Refinances.
  • Zero down Mortgage loan with a loan limit of $424,000
  • Upfront funding fee is 1.0% and annual mi fee is .35% (very low compared to FHA)
  • Typically cannot own other real estate. There are exceptions to this.
  • You do not have to be a first-time home buyer in Kentucky
  • Can refinance existing USDA loan as long as lowering rate by 1% and can do without an appraisal. There are overlays to this by lenders.
  • Closing costs and prepaids can be paid by seller but must be put into contract
  • Closing costs may be financed into the loan up to the appraised value.
  • You will need two credit trade lines reporting at least for 12 months on your credit file. They don’t have to be open and active. Just reporting on your credit report.
  • All Guaranteed Mortgage Loans are ran through GUS. GUS stands for the Guaranteed Underwriting System. USDA and their underwriters use this system to pre-approve you. They review credit score/history, income, debt to income ratio and assets to determine your loan eligibility. If your credit score is below 640 or your debt to income ratio is over 45%, it will get a refer and you will find most lenders will not approve the loan.
  • Some lenders will do a credit score down to 600, but they will want a lot of documentation to overturn the refer and compensating factors for the lower credit score. They typically will need to verify rent for last 12 months, with no lates, cash payments are not acceptable, and debt to income ratios are set at 29% and 41% respectively. Reserves are typically helpful too on lower credit scores, so keep in that in mind, if you have money in a savings account, for a rainy day fund, this will help sometimes get the loan approved.
  • If you have access to 20% down payment you cannot use the USDA Program. Money in a retirement account does not account toward the 20% rule.
  • Properties must be located in an eligible area of Kentucky. Typically the large metro areas of Kentucky including the following: all of Jefferson County,  all of Fayette County, Owensboro, Paducah, Hopkinsville, Bowling Green, Richmond, Frankfort and Northern KY cities of Covington, Florence, Erlanger, Beechwood, Richwood are not eligible
USDA Eligible Areas In Northern Kentucky for Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Grant Counties
  • Independence
  • Burlington
  • Hebron
  • Highland Heights
  • Walton
  • Alexandria
  • Cold Springs
  • All Of Grant County, Pendleton County And Owen County

Search for Kentucky USDA Eligible Properties 

A property must be located in an eligible area in order to use a USDA loan to purchase a home.  Contrary to belief, Rural Development loans are not only for farms or very rural homes.  

Actually, a property with an operating and income producing farm is not eligible for these loans!

Kentucky USDA Rural Max Income Limits:

  • The total household income must be within the county limits for household size.  Typically a family household of 4 can make up to around $75,650  and a family of five or more  can make up to $99,850 for a household- Some KY counties allow for higher like Shelby County, and the Northern Kentucky Counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell allow $82,000 (household income of four) up to $108,250 (household income of five or more)

Check Your Kentucky County for USDA Rural Housing Income Limits

 

Some More Facts about a Kentucky USDA loan:


It’s a two step approval process.  The chosen USDA lender must first underwrite the file and get it approved based on the income, assets, and credit report submitted. Then, the lenders must submit to USDA for a “conditional commitment”.  This conditional commitment is the final loan approval paperwork you are looking for. 


Even though the lender may have approved the file, it still must go to USDA office in Lexington for an assignment to SFH underwriter for the final approval process. They typically are checking the appraisal and income at this stage. There have been instances where the lender would approve the file but USDA would not due to appraisal issues or income and job history. 
This is very rare instances, so keep that in mind when it comes to final loan approval. 

This two-step approval process usually adds 4-6 days to the final loan approval process, so keep that in mind when you are writing up your contract because it takes a little longer to close these loans vs FHA, VA, and Fannie Mae loans.

Well Test Treatments:  Properties with a well as the primary drinking source will require a well water test.  There are local labs to perform this test and the water must pass.

Septic Test: Sometimes they will require the septic tank to be inspected if called for in the appraisal report or home inspection. 

Older Homes: As a general rule, USDA does not like homes older than 100 years old. They will sometimes require a home inspection in addition to the mandatory appraisal on older homes.

USDA Loan After a Short Sale:  A short sale is not the end of the world.  So it is very possible to obtain a USDA loan if 3 years have passed after the short sale.  But a buyer would need re-established good rent and other credit history.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure:  If the mortgage debt that was foreclosed, was included in a Bankruptcy – then the USDA Home Loan waiting periods after foreclosure “waiting period” of 3 years, starts from the date of the discharge of the Bankruptcy.  Because it can take 6 months or more for Banks to process the Foreclosure, and transfer title, this is a tremendous plus.

Put my experience of originating KY USDA loans to work for you. I have successfully originated over 200 Rural Housing Mortgage Loans in Kentucky. I offer free pre-approvals and will help you from start to finish and I usually attend all my closings in Kentucky.

Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Development Eligible Properties and Income Limits for 2017

usda-rural-housing-wisconsin-2

Search for Kentucky USDA Eligible Properties 

A property must be located in an eligible area in order to use a USDA loan to purchase a home.  Contrary to belief, Rural Development loans are not only for farms or very rural homes.  

Actually, a property with an operating and income producing farm is not eligible for these loans!

92e6b340d7ddfc1129f96e36194cf580

Kentucky USDA Rural Max Income Limits:

  • The total household income must be within the county limits for household size.  Typically a family household of 4 can make up to around $75,650  and a family of five or more  can make up to $99,850 for a household- Some KY counties allow for higher like Shelby County, and the Northern Kentucky Counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell allow $82,000 (household income of four) up to $108,250 (household income of five or more)

Check Your Kentucky County for USDA Rural Housing Income Limits

 

Some More Facts about a Kentucky USDA loan:


It’s a two step approval process.  The chosen USDA lender must first underwrite the file and get it approved based on the income, assets, and credit report submitted. Then, the lenders must submit to USDA for a “conditional commitment”.  This conditional commitment is the final loan approval paperwork you are looking for. 


Even though the lender may have approved the file, it still must go to USDA office in Lexington for an assignment to SFH underwriter for the final approval process. They typically are checking the appraisal and income at this stage. There have been instances where the lender would approve the file but USDA would not due to appraisal issues or income and job history. 
This is very rare instances, so keep that in mind when it comes to final loan approval. 

This two-step approval process usually adds 4-6 days to the final loan approval process, so keep that in mind when you are writing up your contract because it takes a little longer to close these loans vs FHA, VA, and Fannie Mae loans.

Well Test Treatments:  Properties with a well as the primary drinking source will require a well water test.  There are local labs to perform this test and the water must pass.

Septic Test: Sometimes they will require the septic tank to be inspected if called for in the appraisal report or home inspection. 

Older Homes: As a general rule, USDA does not like homes older than 100 years old. They will sometimes require a home inspection in addition to the mandatory appraisal on older homes.

USDA Loan After a Short Sale:  A short sale is not the end of the world.  So it is very possible to obtain a USDA loan if 3 years have passed after the short sale.  But a buyer would need re-established good rent and other credit history.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure:  If the mortgage debt that was foreclosed, was included in a Bankruptcy – then the USDA Home Loan waiting periods after foreclosure “waiting period” of 3 years, starts from the date of the discharge of the Bankruptcy.  Because it can take 6 months or more for Banks to process the Foreclosure, and transfer title, this is a tremendous plus.

Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Loans Credit Requirements for a Loan in 2014

img-resize (2)

Credit Scores:

If you have a credit score below 640 you will probably get referred for a manual underwrite which means the income and credit requirements are much tougher for scores below 640. We can do scores down to 620 but usually it is best to try and raise your score to 640 so we can get an automated approval thru GUS.

If GUS returns an refer/eligible, then we can consider doing a manul underwrite on your loan approval. This usually entails a verifiable rent history over the last 12 months with no lates, and the debt to income ratios are usually tied to the industry old standard of 29% and 41% respectively.

If GUS returns an ineligible status, then your loan is automatically denied and there is no chance of getting approved when this result shows.

Collections:

If you have any delinquent back taxes, student loans they would need to be paid or brought current so you don’t have any liens to the government.

Delinquent Government Debt (back taxes, student loans

Medical bills are usually okay if they are not showing as a garnishment against you or on the title search.

Large unpaid utility bills, credit card charge offs, and car repos will usually have to be paid before closing. You will have to show you have funds to pay these off before closing.

Foreclosure:

You have to be 3 years removed from a foreclosure to qualify for a Kentucky RHS loan.

Bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptices require a 3 year wait after the bankruptcy was discharged.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptices only require 1 year wait after discharge.

The United States Department of Agriculture has created a special home buyer opportunity for Americans that live in rural areas. These home buying programs were designed to increase homeownership amongst lower and middle income families that live in smaller sized cities, towns, and remote areas.

What makes these loans so special?

  • No Down Payments – USDA loans are one of the only home mortgages that allow someone to buy a home without putting any money down. In fact, the only other way someone can finance 100% of their home purchase is if they are in the military or a veteran. Even someone with perfect credit, long job history, and plenty of savings/assets can not qualify for 0 down on a home loan. This is a unique and very special aspect of USDA home buyer loans.
  • Lower PMI costs– Private Mortgage Insurance, also known as “PMI” is much lower on USDA loans than FHA or conventional mortgages. This can save you a lot of money.
  • Reduced Interest Rates The interest rates are lower on USDA loans, which results in lower payments, and plenty of money saved overtime.

How to Qualify for a USDA Loan

The best way to find out if you qualify for a USDA loan is to speak with one of our USDA specialists. It is easy to find out if you are eligible and usually only takes a few minutes. There are some basic qualification guidelines that the Department of Agriculture has set up which will help you have an idea if you can get a USDA loan.

  • Property Eligibility – The home you want to finance with a USDA loan must be an eligible property. You can not buy any home you want, it must be a designated property. You can look up homes in certain areas, or you can search by address on the USDA website.
  • Job History – Similar to all other mortgage loans, a two year work history is required.  You must show that you have been consistently employed for the past two years straight in order to qualify for USDA financing.
  • Income Limits – You must not make over a certain amount in order to receive a USDA mortgage. This amount varies by location so you will need to look up your specific counties income limits.
  • DTI Ratio– One of the main ways which determines if you will be approved or not is your debt-to-income ratios. While you must not make too much money, you also must not have too much debt. Your debt-to-income ratio is how much monthly debt you have (only those debts which show on your credit report are counted) compared to your bring home income. So if your household income is $4,000/month, and your currently monthly debts (excluding rent), combined with your new mortgage payment are $1,500/month, this would equal a 37.5% DTI ratios (this was calculated by taking $1,500 and dividing it by $4,000).
  • Credit Score – The minimum credit score varies from lender to lender, but most want to see at least a 640 credit score for you to be approved.
  • Mortgage Insurance – USDA loans have their own version of mortgage insurance. It is called the “Guaranteed Fee” and works similarly to how FHA loans have upfront and monthly mortgage insurance premiums (MIP). With USDA loans, there is a 1.0% upfront guarantee fee, and a 0.350% annual guarantee fee that is divided into 12 payments each year. The amount of your annual fee (paid monthly) adjusts each and goes down as your loan balance does. Use our USDA calculator to get an idea of what your monthly payment will be:

 

What Are the USDA Programs That Exist?

The USDA has two primary loan programs that exist. This includes direct loans and guaranteed loans.

  • Direct Loan – These are loans made directly by the government. You do not have to go through a mortgage lender, but instead you apply with the Department of Agriculture.  The direct loan is named the USDA 502 Direct Loan.
  • Guaranteed Loans – Guaranteed loans are those processed and closed by a USDA mortgage lender.  This program is called the USDA 502 Guaranteed Loan. The USDA backs the loan, but does not issue the loan themselves.

The difference between these two, aside from who provides the financing, is eligibility requirements.  The USDA 502 direct loan is geared more towards lower income families that may have issue obtaining a loan from a mortgage lender.  The USDA 502 guaranteed loan allows for more borrowers, including those with more income, to get a USDA loan.  Some applicants may be able to get a direct or guaranteed loan.  When you speak with a mortgage representative, they will help you identify which programs are available to you.  You can then compare loan terms of any mortgage you qualify for.

How to Apply for a USDA Loan

It is very easy to apply for a USDA loan. In fact, we can prequalify you over the phone. The best way to apply is to request a free USDA loan consultation and a loan specialist will contact you. All we need for an initial pre qualification is for you to share some basic information and we can inform you of your eligibility.

USDA Mortgage Questions and Answers

Are USDA loans only for farms and agricultural properties?
This is a very common question and something that many people wonder about since it is the Department of Agriculture that backs these loans. It is actually the complete opposite though. USDA loans are meant for residential homes in rural areas, not agricultural or farmland.

Can you buy a farm with a USDA?
USDA loans are strictly for residential properties, so no farm or land that is used for agricultural purposes are allowed. In simplest words, the property can not be income producing.

If USDA loans are for rural properties does that mean they are not available near cities?
Surprisingly this is not the case either. Another misconception about the USDA home buying program is that the loans are exclusively for homes in remote areas. There are actually plenty of eligible homes just outside of various urban/suburban areas. The best way for you to get an idea of what type of home you can buy, and where, is to use the USDA property eligibility search.

Can I buy an investment property with a USDA loan?
No, you may only use a USDA loan for a home that you personally occupy as the owner.

Can I finance the loan costs into the loan?
Yes, you can finance the closing costs and the upfront mortgage insurance into the loan. This means that you do not pay the fees out of pocket at closing, but instead it is added to the loan amount. It is important to note that you will then be paying interest on these fees if they are wrapped into the mortgage. Just some “food for thought” when you decide if that is something you want to do.

How much is mortgage insurance on USDA loans?
There are two types of mortgage insurance on USDA loans. This includes both upfront mortgage insurance and what is called the “annual fee”. The upfront amount is 1.00% of the loan amount. This can be added to the loan amount (as described in the question above). The “annual fee” is divided into your monthly payments. This fee is 0.35% of the loan balance (recalculated each year). So the amount goes down as you pay your mortgage. The annual fee of 0.35% is divided into 12 and added to the monthly payments. This is cheaper than FHA MIP (mortgage insurance premiums), as well as the PMI amounts on VA and conventional loans.

Do I have to be a first time home buyer?
The good news is you do not have to be a first time buyer. The only stipulation is that it must be your primary residence. So you must not currently own a home to be able to get a USDA loan.

What is the loan limits? How much can I borrow?
USDA loan limits adhere to the Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac conforming loan limits. For a single family residence, this amount is $417,000 in most areas of the county
