The Washington State USDA Rural Development Home Loan Program is by far in my opinion one of the best, most financial savvy loan programs available today for first time homebuyers. The purpose of this article and the short video attached is to identify the common pitfalls that I am seeing homebuyers make with their Realtors as it pertains to buying a home in Washington State with USDA financing.
USDA Home Loans
Some Details About the USDA Home Loan Program in Washington State
– Zero Down, no down payment required
– No monthly private mortgage insurance (PMI)
– Very competitive 30-year fixed rates
– 640 minimum credit score required
– Flexible underwriting guidelines (see me for specific questions… employment, credit, debt-to-income..)

– Can use to buy new construction
– Can use to finance a REO or short sale
Make sure to note (as I mentioned in the video) that the property must meet a certain standard. It is important that your mortgage banker and Realtor understand this before writing an offer on a home if you plan on using USDA financing. For more information on Washington USDA Rural Development property qualifying guidelines, you can view this article that I published directly from a USDA and FHA underwriter – FHA/USDA Property Guidelines
