USDA and the Rural Housing Service (RHS) has available funds in its Section 502 Direct Loan Program that must be used by September 30, 2015 for buyers that want to live away from the city. The Washington DC field office reported : “As of August 13, 2015, RHS has enough to fund approximately 2,500 additional home loans.”
This is a loan for buyers in Non city areas- “rural areas” whose adjusted income does not exceed 80 percent of the area median. There is no down payment requirement and the interest rate are really low. Areas like Warren County, Culpeper, Orange County, Page County, Rappahanock County, Front Royal and Linden, Virginia should qualify for this program. Some parts of Fauquier County Catlett, Warrenton and Marshall may qualify. Rural parts of Maryland Counties may also qualify such as North Western Montgomery County, Brunswick to Middletown and Parts of Carroll County, MD.
This is a direct loan program that is different then the Guaranteed loan program. You must apply thru an RHS field office and not thru a mortgage lender for the Direct Loan. Loan funds may be used to purchase existing homes, to build, repair, renovate or relocate a home, or to purchase and prepare sites, including providing water and sewage facilities.
