USDA Loans in Jeopardy!

USDA loans are used to help low to moderate income families buy homes in rural areas.  Most of the communities right outside of Charlotte are eligible and USDA has quickly become one of the hottest programs today primarily due to its zero down payment and no PMI.  USDA is funded each year through Congress, and like most years they are running behind on getting the appropriate funding passed.  Most years it really isn’t a problem and lenders keep on lending because USDA shifts some money around to cover the shortfall but this year might be different.  Below is an alert directly from USDA…

This message is to notify you that program funding for the Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program will likely be exhausted by the end of April, 2010.

Once funding is exhausted, the Agency will not issue Conditional Commitments “subject to receipt of appropriated funds.”  This is because it is not certain when additional funding will be available. 

Limited funding may become available for disaster areas declared in 2008, or in disaster areas declared for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  Limited funding may also become available as prior Agency commitments are de-obligated, however, such funding will be very limited. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Should you have any questions, you may contact the Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Division at (202)720-1452.


Please call your congressmen and ask them to RUSH this funding through.  Many people don’t know a lot about USDA mortgages but they are VERY common in NC and SC!  Thousands of families may be affected by this if people don’t join together and make some noise in Washington.  USDA Rural Housing is ran very efficiently and has lower default rates than FHA or other similar programs.

Please take action today.

    Unfortunately I was refused to get a USDA loan, due to the fact that I have a bad credit history, so is there another way of taking a loan?

  2. says

    Well according to US officials nothing will happen to USDA loans so do not worry anymore about them, everything is going to be fine.

  3. says

    I am very glad to tell you that this situation has finally been solved and a few days ago I took a USDA loan.

  4. says

    According to government officials the amount of money allowed to take with USDA loans will be increased in the next month.

  5. says

    Yesterday I got great news, I was eligible to receive a USDA rural housing loan, so in a month I’ll be able to by my dream home.

  6. says

    According to latest news the US congress is planing to cut the funding of USDA loans, for 2 years due to the crisis, so I guess it will be hard from now on.

  7. says

    Yes I also heard rumors that the government is planning to close this program so I guess we should take a loan while we can.

  8. says

    To be frank I don’t know where from did you hear all those rumors, a few days ago my husband and I obtained a USDA loan without any problems.

  9. says

    I agree with Mary that there are only rumors, but what will happen in reality nobody can tell even guys from Congress.

  10. says

    I think the key is that the USDA program has lower default rates than regular FHA loans. If people purchase through the program and are not as likely to default, the program should definitely continue.

  11. says

    I really think that this program should be a little bit upgraded. It is indeed a really big help for people with smaller incomes, but after this economic crisis, if one family has bad credit ( e.g.: lost house cos of a unpaid mortgage) they should be allowed to apply for USDA. At least that’s my wish.

  12. says

    The USDA loan program is a wonderful program for Rural America. The program is ran very efficiently and the default rate on USDA loans are much lower than FHA or other financing programs.

  13. says

    Under the terms of the program, an individual or family may borrow up to 100% of the appraised value of the home, which eliminates the need for a down payment and it’s a great thing.

  14. says

    The USDA Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program is a good program for rural areas. Has anyone heard any status on the program. I’ve heard it may close down or be revised?

  15. says

    These loans seem like such a great way to help people out. I’m all for them, for as long as people are aware of the responsibilities and discipline that come along with acquiring loans.

    USDA loan financing program is a great help to homeowners who may be eligible for USDA loan financing and want to work with a lender who will accept to sell its property via USDA.

    I am very glad to read your new posts! They are so great, and you are very creative! The world is but a can vas to the imagination.

    I want to buy a house, but my credit score is poor, my husband’s is only 580, but my mon told me that my little sister and her husband just got a USDA loan with no money down and their scores are not good either. Is this an option for me or what should I do?

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome website!

    The USDA home loan is a loan guaranteed by the federal government. These loans are designed for people with modest yet stable income. A history of paying debts in a timely manner is also a strong asset for the borrower. The income levels are calculated based on rules set forth by the USDA.

  23. says

    I’m all for any program that can help in providing a home for every family. Each and every child deserves to grow up secure in the fact that he/she has “roots” to which he/she can always come home to.
