The USDA RD Loan is a great profram to purchase a home with no down payment, and typically lower payment than other popular loan programs. The home must be in an eligible rural area defined by the USDA. These are typically rural unincorporated areas with under 50,000 inhabitants.

If you and your family make less than the maximum income for your area and family size, you would get into a home with no money down, and the home is in an eligible area, this program is a great opportunity.

Income limits and eligible areas change everywhere so its very important to talk to a loan expert about this option.
