The program’s full name is the Kentucky USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan program. Most people call them “USDA loans” or “Rural Housing Loans.” Kentucky USDA loans are insured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the program’s most popular feature is its option for “no money down” financing. Via the USDA, you can finance 100% of a home’s purchase price.

It is a common misconception that these loans are only for farm types of properties. In fact, income producing farms are not eligible for the program. 118 of Kentucky’s 120 counties contain areas that are eligible for program (The whole area of Jefferson & Fayette Counties currently are ineligible).  Parts of Bullitt County, McCracken, Christian, Boone, Kenton, Campbell Counties are ineligible.

 

The property cannot be located within the city limits of a municipality with a population level determined by the U.S Census with a limit set by the USDA.

A Kentucky USDA loans are similar to other loan types including loans via Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Kentucky USDA loans differ in their down payment requirements (none required) and its simpler loan approval standards. Kentucky Rural loans can be used by first-time buyers and repeat home buyers alike. Homeowner counseling is not required to use the Kentucky USDA program. Mortgage insurance premiums are also often more attractive than many alternative financing types.

Since October 1, 2012, USDA mortgage insurance rates have been :
•For purchases, 2.00% of loan amount upfront fee paid at closing
•For refinances, 2.00% of loan amount upfront fee paid at closing
•For all loans, 0.40% annual fee, based on the remaining principal balance

As a real-life example, then, a homebuyer with a $100,000 loan size in Kentucky would be asked make a $2,000 upfront mortgage insurance premium payment at closing, plus $33.33 in mortgage insurance monthly.

The upfront mortgage insurance is not required to be paid as cash and the amount is often added to your loan balance even above the purchase price and appraised value of the home. USDA is one of the only loan types that allows you to also finance in other closing costs and prepaid items above the purchase price up the appraised value if it is greater than the purchase price of the home.

Also similar to the FHA, the USDA requires mortgage insurance premiums to be paid until the loan is paid-in-full, or until the home is sold. USDA mortgage insurance rates are lower than those for a comparable FHA mortgages.assess a 1.75% upfront mortgage insurance premium and charge as much as 1.55% in MIP annually.

Mortgage News

For home buyers today, there are two mortgage programs which offer 100% financing. The first is the VA loan from the Department of Veterans Affairs. It’s available to most active military personnel and veterans nationwide.

The other program is the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Single Family Housing Loan Guarantee Program.

Sometimes called a “Rural Housing Loan” or a “Section 502” loan, today’s USDA financing isn’t just for farms. Because of the way the USDA defines “rural”, there are plenty of exurban and suburban neighborhoods nationwide in which USDA loans can be used.

Home buyers who buy a home in a qualified USDA area, and who meet USDA income eligibility requirements, can take advantage of the USDA’s low interest rate, no downpayment mortgage program..

The GRH program is similar to a mortgage insurance program. The borrower may purchase a home at 100% LTV based on the appraised value on a 30 year fixed rate loan. The one time, upfront guarantee fee can be added to the loan as well. As a result, the total LTV on GRH loans is often between 100% – 103%. In addition to this upfront fee, the borrower will have monthly insurance premiums that are added to their qualifying housing expenses.
