USDA Loans



USDA loans are a great option for many Connecticut Residents. The “Rural HousingUSDA Loan is a true 100% financing program federally insured by the US Department of Agriculture. It is called a Rural Loan by the USDA because it is handled by the Rural Development Department.


USDA loans have very attractive features for homebuyers:


  • $0 down payment. 100% purchase program

  • Low monthly mortgage insurance compared to other mortgage programs such as FHA

  • No asset requirements/ reserve requirements

  • Low interest rates


You do have to meet a few qualifications in order to get a USDA loan:


  • The property has to be in an eligible area.

  • The program has income limits.


USDA loans are sometimes overlooked because they are believed to be just for rural properties. Much of Connecticut is eligible for USDA loans.
