To be approved for a USDA loan the borrower or borrowers must meet credit requirements. Your USDA loan application can receive an underwriting approval down to a 620 credit score, although it is much easier to get approved over a 640. Applicants must demonstrate repayment ability for the loan along with a job history of at least two years. If you have just graduated from school the two year employment history can be waived. If you require more in depth explanation please go to our USDA loans Guideline page.
If you are in the market to purchase a home you should apply for or research a USDA loan to determine if you are eligible. One of our USDA loan specialist will be more than happy to see if you qualify.

With many loan options available, USDA Loans rank as THE BEST for getting into your dream home. USDA Loans have many features that make them superior to home loans through a bank. Also known as Rural Development Loans, USDA Loans are insured and guaranteed through the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan Program. In the year 2015 alone, the USDA funded over 171,000 loans through the USDA Loan program to help applicants buy a home of their own.
What makes a USDA Loan the best option available? Here is a list of reasons that should be considered about a USDA Loan before applying:
With a USDA Loan, your down payment will always be $0. While other home loans will require a down payment reaching tens of thousands of dollars, you can be assured that with a USDA Loan you are getting a NO MONEY DOWN loan.
The USDA Loan Program is designed to provide consumers with a low interest rate. Interest rates with a USDA Loan are fixed, which means your monthly payment will not change due to a fluctuating interest rate throughout the length of the loan.
While there are many factors that determine the amount of time to complete your loan, a USDA Loan can close in 30 days. Getting you into your home sooner is just another reason why a USDA Loan is a better option for consumers.
To be approved for a USDA Loan, the applicant needs a minimum credit score of 620. However, a credit score of 640 will greatly improve an applicant’s chance of qualifying for a USDA Loan.
