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.

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 LOAN GUARANTEED RURAL HOUSING REFINANCE FEATURES

  • Loan must be secured by the same property as the original loan. The original loan must be Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) or USDA Section 502 Direct only. The Program may not be used to refinance FHA, VA, or other government or conventional mortgages.
  • Term of the new loan will be 30 years.
  • Interest rate of the new loan cannot exceed the interest rate of the loan being refinanced. However, the interest rate of the new loan does not have to meet the interest rate requirements established in RD Instruction 1980-D, §1980.320 Interest rate.
  • Property must be owned and occupied by the borrowers as their principal residence.
  • The guarantee fee is 1.00% of the total principal obligation of the new loan.
  • The 1.00% guarantee fee may be always financed into any GRH refinancing transaction. As usual, borrowers may finance other closing costs and fees up to 100% of the current appraised value. However, it is possible for the loan-to-value (LTV) of the new loan to reach 101% if the 1% guarantee fee is financed. Loans may exceed 100% LTV only to the extent that the excess represents a financed guarantee fee of no more than 1.00%.
  • Total household income cannot exceed the moderate level for the area as established in RD Instruction 1980-D, Exhibit C.
  • GRH refinance loans are permitted for properties in areas that have been determined to be non-rural since the existing loan was made.
  • Applicants are not eligible to receive “cash out” from the refinancing transaction. However, applicants may receive reimbursement from loan proceeds at settlement for their personal funds advanced for eligible loan purposes that are part of the refinance transaction, such as an appraisal fee or credit report fee. At loan closing, a nominal amount of “cash out” to the applicants (beyond reimbursement of these “prepaid” items) may occasionally result due to final escrow and interest calculations. This amount, if any, must be applied to a principal reduction of the new loan.
  • Subordinate financing such as home equity seconds and down payment assistance “silent” seconds cannot be included in the new loan amount. Any existing secondary financing must be subordinate to the new first lien.
  • Maximum loan amount cannot exceed the balance of the loan being refinanced, plus the guarantee fee, and reasonable and customary closing costs, including funds necessary to establish a new escrow account.
  • Unpaid fees, such as late fees due the current servicer, are not eligible to be included in the new loan amount.
  • eligible areas on USDA Rural Development’s web-site at:
  • http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.govhttp://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov

 


For commitments issues on or after October 1, 2016:

USDA charges the lender, who can pass the charge to the borrower, a one-time up-front cost, which is known as a Guarantee Fee. The Guarantee Fee can be financed in addition to the maximum base loan amount. The Guarantee Fee is calculated as follows as of October 1, 2016:
PURCHASE TRANSACTION CALCULATION:

  • 1.00% of the TOTAL loan amount for commitments issued on or after 10/1/16.
  • Calculation: Base loan amount divided by .99 = Total loan amount (round down to nearest dollar). Total loan is then multiplied by 1.00% to get the amount of the guarantee fee.
  • A Guarantee Fee & Annual Fee (monthly) Calculator can be found on the USDA training resource website.

CALCULATION FOR REFINANCE TRANSACTIONS:

  • 1.00% of the TOTAL loan amount for commitments issued on or after 10/1/16.
  • Calculation: Base loan amount divided by .99 = Total loan amount (round down to nearest dollar). Total loan is then multiplied by 1.00% to get the amount of the guarantee fee.
  • A Guarantee Fee & Annual Fee (monthly) Calculator can be found on the USDA training resource website.

ANNUAL FEE:
All loan transactions will include an annual fee of .35%
