Our team of USDA Loan Specialists work hard to help you achieve your goals of home ownership – regardless of financial circumstance or location. Backed by the Department of Agriculture, USDA loans are federally insured and can be compounded with USDA-sponsored grants. These loans have several unique qualifications that set them apart from other traditional lending products and government-backed home loans.

If your income does not qualify you for a traditional or other government-issued loan program, like the FHA or VA loan, then a USDA loan can be used to purchase a home.
If the home you live in requires critical maintenance to satisfy local safety conditions, USDA loans can be used to renovate a deteriorated home. The program is also designed to assist the elderly and those with physical or mental limitations secure home owner assistance.

USDA Loans Vs Other Loan Options

While the USDA loan is a federal program, the government generally does not make direct loans to applicants. Private lenders, including BBMC Mortgage, finance the loan while the US government offers an insurance guaranty. This guaranty provides an incentive for private lenders to offer loans with better terms, and protects them in the event of a customer default. See how a USDA loan stacks up to other loan types.

What are the differences for a loan?
USDA Conventional
Who Qualifies

Both VA and non-VA eligible applicants who exceed maximum USDA and FHA lending requirements with moderate-to-high income, moderate-to-high credit and strong employment history.

Qualify for a USDA Loan

In addition to living in a rural area, an applicant must meet certain strict income guidelines. USDA Loans are intended to provide quality homes to individuals with very low-to-median incomes.

Your income rating will largely depend on where you decide to live.

BBMC will take the median income for the area you live in and gauge the information you provide us based on that public data.

USDA Loans may or may not require any down payment from qualified applicants.
