What is a USDA Loan?
The program known as the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan is backed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and provides low to moderate income families affordable home-ownership opportunities in rural and suburban areas across the United States. USDA eligible properties are typically located outside of city limits, in suburbs or rural areas. The USDA Guaranteed Loan is not meant to finance farms rather they are geared towards the standard single-family home.
