USDA Loans: Low Rates With No Down Payment

Kentucky USDA Loans are mortgage loans which are backed and guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture. These loans are sometimes known as Rural Housing Loans or “Section 502” loans, which are named for it’s place in the USDA Charter.

USDA loans are extremely popular by both first-time homebuyers and even previous homeowners due to their low, competitive interest rates but also there is no need for a down payment.

USDA loans also offer lower monthly mortgage insurance premiums (MIP) than some of it’s popular counterparts, FHA and Conventional loans.

2018 USDA Loan Income Limits

For the SFGLP, the 2018 income limits were updated on June 13, 2018.  Most counties saw increases. The floor income limit in all counties across the United States went up.

While underwriting requirements for USDA loans will vary based on the credit profile of the borrower, there is one requirement where there is absolutely no leeway and that is with the household income limit for the area you are purchasing in.

USDA has set specific income limits based on the size of the household. Categories are based on household sizes of 1-4 and then household sizes of 5-8.

2018 Income Limits are based on household size:

  • 1-4 member household : $82,700

  • 5-8 member household : $109,150

There are some areas with slightly higher limits.  For example, in Northern Kentucky Counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell, and Gallantin Counties the income limits for a 1-4 member household is $90,500 while a 5-8 member household is $119,450.  **Income limits vary my county and MSA***

USDA has published a great new PDF document that lists every area in every state.  You can view that document by here.

You can always go to the USDA eligibility website and lookup the income limit for the area you live or are wanting to purchase here.

Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Guidelines for Home Insurance Deductibles and POA’S for 2017

USDA REVISIONS TO HB-1-3555
 
THE REASONS BELOW ARE THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE TIMES A POWER OF ATTORNEY WILL BE ALLOWED. BORROWER UNAVAILABILITY OR FOR CONVENIENCE WILL NO LONGER BE AN ACCEPTABLE REASON TO USE A POWER OF ATTORNEY ON KENTUCKY USDA LOANS FOR THE 502 GUARANTEE LOAN PROGRAM
 
Use of a Power of Attorney (POA):
A Power of Attorney (POA) may only be used when the Mortgagee verifies and documents that all of the following requirements have been satisfied:
  • For military personnel, a POA may only be used for one of the applications (initial or final), but not both:
    • when the service member is on overseas duty or on an unaccompanied tour;
    • when the Mortgagee is unable to obtain the absent Borrower’s signature on the application by mail or via fax;

And

    • where the attorney-in-fact has specific authority to encumber the Property and to obligate the Borrower. Acceptable evidence includes a durable POA specifically designed to survive incapacity and avoid the need for court proceedings.
  • For incapacitated Borrowers, a POA may only be used where:
    • a Borrower is incapacitated and unable to sign the mortgage application;
    •  the incapacitated individual will occupy the Property to be insured;

And

    • the attorney-in-fact has specific authority to encumber the Property and to obligate the Borrower. Acceptable evidence includes a durable POA specifically designed to survive incapacity and avoid the need for court proceedings.
Hazard Insurance Maximum Deductible:
On Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Loans effective now, they have clarified that the maximum deductible may not exceed the greater of $1,000 or 1% of the face amount of the policy similar to the policy for flood insurance deductibles.
 MRB Special Funding Program

aaaf9a21b3b923d060abfeabaaf30469
Lenders must include the greater of:
• 1 percent of the outstanding loan balance; or
• The fixed payment as reflected on the credit report.

Income Based Repayment (IBR) plans, graduated plans, adjustable rates, interest-only and deferred plans are examples of repayment plans that are subject to change and do not represent a fixed payment or repayment plan. These types of repayment plans are unacceptable to represent a long-term fixed payment repayment plan. It is the lender’s responsibility to ensure the correct fixed payment is utilized in the capacity analysis.

No additional documentation is required if a credit report is obtained.

2018 KY USDA Rural Housing Income Limits for Kentucky Counties Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

2018 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 $453.000
  • 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.
