Connecticut USDA Loan Program
A Connecticut USDA loan is a great mortgage option in our state. Most noteworthy about the USDA Loan is that it allows for up to 100% financing for those that qualify. Borrowers should also be aware that this type of mortgage loan does not allow for working farms, multi-family properties, or for the home to be income producing.
USDA loans have very attractive features for homebuyers:
- $0 down payment. 100% purchase program for those that qualify.
- Low monthly mortgage insurance compared to other mortgage programs such as FHA
- This program also has limited reserve requirements
- Finally, interest rates are comparable to FHA and VA loans.
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.
Connecticut USDA loans are sometimes overlooked because they are believed to be just for rural properties. Much of Connecticut is eligible for USDA loans.
