Shutdown Stalling Rural Mortgages

Rural Housing Loans Affected By Government Shutdown in Kentucky

 

  • The USDA backs about 120,000 mortgages a year, or about 3.5 percent of purchase mortgage originations nationally.
  • Almost half of USDA mortgages were in southern states from 2012 to 2017.[1]

Borrowers who rely on mortgages from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have been in a holding pattern that runs alongside the federal government shutdown. These loans from the USDA’s Farm Service Agency and the Rural Housing Service are made mostly in rural areas and often to low- and middle-income borrowers.

The USDA backs about 120,000 mortgages a year, or about 3.5 percent of all mortgage purchase originations,[2] according to data from the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. The USDA offices that administer these loans have been closed since late December, rendering a major source of funding inaccessible.

Who is eligible for a Rural Housing Loan in Kentucky?

Kentucky USDA loans are loans offered by the United States Department of Agriculture to those looking to buy homes in rural areas of Kentucky. There are a few requirements and restrictions associated with this type of loan however, if you are a first time home buyer in Kentucky with a limited income, no down payment and are looking to live in a rural part of Kentucky, this may be a good option for you to purchase a home going no money down and getting a 30 year fixed rate loan.

Below I will spell-out the qualifying requirements for a USDA loan in Kentucky for 2019

Income Requirements for USDA Loans in Kentucky

The Rural Housing USDA website provides an income eligibility calculator depending on where you are looking for housing in the state of Kentucky. Because it is a nationally funded loan by the United States Government, the income restrictions will vary county-by-county  but the loan recipient cannot make more than 115% of the median income for the area in which they are applying. There is also a chart you can consult that provides Kentucky USDA county income limits depending on the number of people in your home. Most Kentucky Counties will allow up to $86,400 for a household family of four or less, and up to $116,350 for a household of five. The Northern Kentucky Counties of Kenton, Bracken, Boone, Gallatin, Campbell allow for more. See Chart below

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.

 

Credit Score Requirements for a USDA Loan in Kentucky in 2020

Borrowers in Kentucky are required to have a FICO minimum credit score of 581 or higher. However, most USDA lenders will create a credit overlay where they will want a minimum credit score of 640 in order to get a GUS approval. 

If the potential borrower has declared bankruptcy or foreclosure within the last 36 months, they would be ineligible for this type of loan.

If the mortgage was included in the Bankruptcy, sometimes the 36 month hold is ignored and you just have to make sure the property is out of your name before applying for a USDA loan

Can you get a USDA loan in Kentucky with a Previous Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy must have been discharged at least 3 years prior to becoming eligible for a Kentucky USDA home loan.

Borrowers must be in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy for a minimum of 12 months, with documentation of 12 months of on time payments and a letter of authorization from the bankruptcy trustee authorizing you to enter into new debt.

In order to qualify for a USDA home loan after filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, additional documentation may be requested/required stating that the reason for the Chapter 13 filing was due to extenuating circumstances beyond the borrower’s control, temporary in nature and not likely to re-occur.

Home must be primary Residence.

Recipients must be U.S. Citizens, U.S. non-citizen nationals or Qualified Aliens to apply for this program. They must also agree to use the home as their primary residence and not as a rental property.

The property must be for a family including townhouses, single family homes, condominiums (FHA Approved), new construction or new mobile homes.

What areas of Kentucky Qualify for the USDA Loan Program?

The USDA provides a map of the  where you can apply a USDA loans are eligible in Kentucky. The major metro areas of Jefferson County and Fayette County Kentucky are not eligible for Rural Housing Loans in Kentucky, along with some  parts of Northern Kentucky next to Cincinnati;  parts of Owensboro, Paducah, Bowling Green, Richmond, Frankfort, Winchester, Radcliff,  Hopkinsville and Henderson Kentucky are not eligible.

If you have a property in mind, you can head over to the eligibility map to see if the home you are considering qualifies.

 

 

What are the advantages of USDA loans in Kentucky?

For many people in a low to middle-income bracket, saving for a down payment can be difficult. A USDA loan does not require the purchaser to put any money down toward the purchase price of a home. The government insures the loan in this case, should the borrower default, therefore the borrower is required to carry mortgage insurance during the life of the loan. The mortgage insurance for the USDA loan is provided at a more discounted rate than that required by traditional loans.On USDA loans the mortgage insurance is 1% upfront, called a guarantee fee, and .35% monthly called an annual mortgage insurance fee to USDA.  The beauty of USDA, is that it does not matter if you have a credit score of 640, or a credit score of 740, everyone pays the same premiums, unlike conventional loans. 

They only offer 30 year fixed rates with no prepayment penalty, and usually the rates are very low and compare to FHA rates and much lower than conventional loans. 

USDA loans take on average about 30 days to close, and the appraisal must meet FHA requirements. Home inspections are not required, and only new mobile homes are allowed on this home loan program.

Kentucky Rural Housing Development Mortgage Guide for 2020 USDA Loans

USDA Lenders Based in Kentucky Offering Rural Housing Mortgage loans.

2020 Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

 

  • 30 year fixed rate only for Purchases and Existing USDA loans Refinances.
  • Zero down Mortgage loan with no loan limits!
  • 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

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.

RHS Student Loans
Effective immediately for all RHS loans, student loan calculations will be changed to the following
  • Fixed Payment Loans: A permanent amortized, fixed payment may be used when it can be documented that the payment is fixed, the interest rate is fixed, and the repayment term is fixed.
  • Non-Fixed Payment Loans (i.e. deferred, income based, graduated, adjustable, etc.): The payment should be calculated as the greater of 0.5% of the loan balance or the actual payment reflected on the credit report. No additional documentation is required.

Minimum Credit Score Requirements for a Kentucky Mortgage Loan Approval Loan

Here are the most common loan programs and their general guidelines on credit scores:

FHA Loans in Kentucky
FHA mortgage loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and insured by the U.S. Federal Housing Authority, a division of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These loans are an attractive option for many borrowers, not just first-time homeowners.

FHA loans are available to borrowers with credit scores as low as 500. Borrowers with scores under 580 will need to have a 10% down payment.

 

VA Loans In Kentucky 
VA Loans are designed to offer long-term financing to American Veterans. These loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and are guaranteed by the United States Veterans Administration. The Veterans Administration determines eligibility and issues a certificate to qualifying applicants to submit to their mortgage lender of choice.

The Veterans Administration does not set a minimum credit score; however, lenders do impose their own limits. Some lenders will go down to a 500 credit score and will also do loans for borrowers without a credit score.

Conventional Loans In Kentucky
Conventional loans are mortgage loans offered by private lenders that are not guaranteed or insured by a government agency. These loans may also be referred to as conforming loans.

Conventional loans are available to borrowers with credit scores as low as 620.

USDA Loans in Kentucky
The United States Department of Agriculture offers a home loan program designed to help individuals living in small towns or rural areas. This loan program is designed to help qualifying applicants, who may not be able to qualify for other types of mortgage loans, purchase homes as their primary residences.

USDA Guaranteed loans are available to borrowers with credit scores as low as 581 and borrowers with no credit scores.

A note for Borrowers with No and Low Credit Scores
While it’s not impossible to qualify for a home loan with a low credit score or no credit score, it does make it harder to qualify. If you have a low credit score or you do not have a credit score, lenders will look more critically at other risk factors that you may have. This includes recent late payments, collection accounts, the amount of funds you have saved up, employment history and the time at your current job, etc.

If you do not have a credit score, it means that the credit bureaus do not have enough information about you to give you a score. While there are some options available to borrowers without a credit score, most lenders will require that you provide proof of payment history on “alternative trade lines”. These are lines of credit or utilities that do not report to the credit bureaus, such as rent, cell phone, electric, cable/internet, car insurance, etc. Acceptable “alternative trade line” accounts must meet certain criteria. The account must be in your name, it must be 12 months old, every payment must have been made on time every single month, and proof of payment must be provided on the creditor’s letterhead.

 

GETTING APPROVED WITH LOW OR NO CREDIT SCORES
You are more likely to be approved with low or no credit scores if you:

Make a larger down payment than is required.
Have sufficient reserves in checking and/or savings accounts.
Have low debt-to-income ratios, which is the percentage of your income that needs to be used towards paying your proposed mortgage and other lines of credit such as auto loans, student loans, credit cards, etc. Paying down existing debt will improve your debt-to-income ratio.

The best part about credit scores is that they aren’t set in stone! It’s never too late start working on improving your credit. If our team can’t pre-approve you today, we’ll come up with a custom plan to help you get to where you need to be. There’s nothing to lose, so apply today!

What is a Kentucky USDA Rural home loan?

What is a Kentucky USDA Rural home loan?

USDA Lenders Based in Kentucky Offering Rural Housing Mortgage loans.

A Kentucky USDA home loan is a zero-dollar-down mortgage option provided by USDA’s Department of Rural Development.

This government-backed loan program comes in two types: direct loan, which is reserved for lower-income households and issued by USDA, and the guaranteed loan, which is reserved for low- to moderate-income families. The guaranteed loan is funded by private lenders, and USDA guarantees a portion of the loan against default.

Is a Kentucky  USDA loan more beneficial than a Kentucky conventional loan?

 The KY USDA home loan program is generally more beneficial to rural families than a conventional lending program, particularly for first-time homebuyers with lower- to median-level incomes.

Some of the benefits of Kentucky Rural Housing USDA loans include:
• zero down payment 
• competitive interest rates
• lower-than-average monthly mortgage insurance 
• relaxed credit requirements versus conventional loans
• no loan limits

How do I determine eligibility for a Kentucky Rural Housing USDA loanTo be eligible for a USDA home loan, borrowers must meet the program’s basic eligibility requirements. These requirements are relaxed compared to other mortgage options and are in place to ensure borrowers can make their monthly mortgage payments.

Here are a few of the basic Kentucky RHS USDA eligibility requirements:

• Income. Applicants must not have annual adjusted income greater than 115% of the median household income for the area. Check your county’s USDA income limit. This called compliance income.

Most Kentucky Counties that are eligible for the rural housing loan is $86,700 for a family of four and up to $114k for a family of five or more.

Kentucky Counties Cincinnati (OH, KY, IN FMR) Household income of 4 or less:

$93,050

Household income of 5 or more:

$121,850

Shelby $86,450 $114,100
All Other Areas $86,700 $114,150

• Credit. Applicants must have a minimum credit score of 581 to qualify for USDA’s guaranteed underwriting credit requirements. However, most lenders will want a 620 or preferably to get an Automated Approval 640 is the magic number in most cases. With regards to bankruptcy, 3 years is usually the date needed to lapse since your discharge.

• Employment. Applicants must have proof of two years of stable income and employment.

:  Income: They will take your gross monthly income and develop two ratios for you: The front end ratio, which is called your housing ratio, and then the back-end ratio or total debt ratio is the house payment plus the total monthly payments listed on the credit report. If you pay child support, this is included in the qualifying ratios but utility bills, car insurance, cell phone bills, water bills etc, is not included. Typically 28% is used for the housing ratio, and

Student Loans:  They are pretty tough on student loans and qualifying with your current student loan debts. They will make us use 1% of your outstanding balance on student loans, so sometimes this will cause the loan to get denied because your debt to income ratio is too high. If they are in an Income-Based repayment plan they will still make us use the 1% balance so keep this in mind. For example, let’s say you owe $35k in outstanding student loans, and your IBR plan calls for a $50 monthly payment. RHS will make us use $350, not the $50 IBR payment so you can see where this will cause issue on higher debt to income ratios on some loans.**********

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
Effective immediately for all Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Mortgage Loans.

If you are a Kentucky USDA Mortgage applicant who has student loan calculations will be changed to the following Fixed Payment Loans:

A permanent amortized, fixed payment may be used when it can be documented that the payment is fixed, the interest rate is fixed, and the repayment term is fixed.

Non-Fixed Payment Loans (i.e. deferred, income based, graduated, adjustable, etc.): The payment should be calculated as the greater of 0.5% of the loan balance or the actual payment reflected on the credit report. No additional documentation is required.

• Property location. Homes must be located within a rural area, as defined by USDA. Rural areas are any that have a population less than 35,000 depending on the area’s designation. Use this tool from USDA to determine if a specific address is eligible.

• Physical property. Homes must be the borrower’s primary residence, have direct access to a street, and have adequate utilities and water and wastewater disposal, among other things No working fams allowed or properties that income producing livestock or crops.

For those with lower incomes, a USDA direct loan provides greater opportunities for lending, as its credit and income requirements are more lax than the guaranteed loan option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are only first-time homebuyers eligible?

No, you do not have to be a first time home buyer.  The USDA Loan program has no restrictions that prevent previous homeowners from using the program.


What is the maximum amount that I can borrow?

There isn’t a limit to the amount a homeowner can borrow


How much are the closing costs for a USDA mortgage?

Closing costs vary from lender to lender and state to state. The charges from the USDA are a Guarantee fee of 1% of the loan amount. Additionally, there is a monthly mortgage insurance factor of .35% of the principal balance.


Can closing costs be financed into a USDA Loan?

Yes! The USDA home loan has the ability to finance closing costs up to the appraised value or to get a 6% seller contribution to closing costs from sellers on the contract.

What are USDA eligibility requirements?

USDA requires that the borrower demonstrates a reasonable ability and willingness to repay the mortgage loan. USDA lenders will view your credit history, income, and assets to verify your ability to repay the mortgage.


What is the USDA’s minimum credit requirement?

The USDA has no minimum score required; however, most lenders require a minimum credit score of 640 or sometimes 620 to obtain financing. Exceptions can be made and you should talk to a loan specialist about this.


Can you qualify for a USDA loan if your credit score is below 640?

Many lenders do require a 640 minimum Fico score to be eligible for a USDA home loan, however, exceptions can be made. It is important to note that the derogatory credit is temporary in nature, beyond the applicant’s control, and the circumstances that caused the adverse credit are no longer a factor.


What does the USDA require for employment eligibility?

You must have established employment to be eligible for a USDA Loan. Almost all lenders will require a minimum of two years of steady employment or schooling prior to your current employment if less than 2 years. If you are self-employed, you are eligible but will be required to provide two years of federal tax returns to verify your income.


Do USDA home loans have PMI?

USDA mortgages do have a guarantee fee and monthly PMI. The rate for the mortgage insurance is .35% of the outstanding principal balance and the current guarantee fee is 1% of loan amount. For example, if you borrowed a full $150,000 from your lender, the guarantee fee would be $1,500, which you can finance into your mortgage. The monthly PMI would be about 44.00 dollars a month on a 151,500 loan amount. (which includes the guarantee fee of 1%)


Can I get a USDA Mortgage after bankruptcy?

Yes, the USDA Loan Program requires the bankruptcy to be discharged for at least 3 years for a CH 7 and at least 12 months of on time payments on a CH 13. You can be in a CH 13 currently as long as 12 months of on-time payments have been made and verified.


How soon can you qualify for a mortgage after foreclosure?

 VA Loans: 2 years after foreclosure
 USDA Loans: 3 years after foreclosure (Exceptions are possible!)
 FHA Loans: 3 years after foreclosure
 Conventional Loans (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac): 7 years after foreclosure


Can I use a USDA Loan on investment property or Second Home?

No, the USDA Rural Housing Program is for primary residences only. Furthermore, any property that is income producing (farms, multi-family, over 30 acres, etc.) cannot qualify for the 502 Guaranteed Rural Home Loan.


Can a USDA loan finance a condominium?

Yes, you can use a USDA loan to finance a condo; however, there are requirements that will need to be met.


Does a USDA home loan finance modular or manufactured homes?

Modular and manufactured homes can be considered a USDA eligible property, but additional appraisal requirements will apply. Most lenders do not offer Section 502 USDA loans on manufactured homes; however, they do finance modular homes. The difference between a modular and manufactured is how and where the home is constructed. A manufactured home is already fully built and put on a foundation and modular homes are built in pieces, and then taken to the site to be constructed.


How fast can you close a USDA loan?

USDA loans have a 2 prong process. The loan is first approved by the lender and then sent to the local USDA field office to be insured. Depending on the turn-times at the local USDA office, closing can be as fast as 20 days or up to 60 days.
