- Depending on your credit history, down payments can be as low as 3.5 percent making them one of the most popular choices for first-time home buyers.
- With a streamline FHA refinance, you may be able to take advantage of falling interest rates without the added expense of getting an appraisal or having to provide additional documentation of your income or other assets. Depending on how long you’ve had your existing FHA loan, a streamline FHA refinance loan can even help lower your mortgage insurance fees.
- Cash-out refinancing limits can also be higher than what is available through many conventional mortgage options.
- Qualification requirements vary depending on which type of FHA loan you are applying for. However, your loan approval will be based on several factors including:
- Credit score and credit history
- The amount of income you earn
- The amount of your other debts
- How much equity you will have in the property
- If the home will be used as your primary residence
- The amount you’re trying to borrow (loan amounts are restricted to the FHA loan limits which vary by county and are based on the cost of real estate in that area)
USDA Rural Housing Loans in Connecticut
Connecticut’s geographic diversity allows you to live your dream of home ownership in some of the prettiest small towns in the country. From the sleepy fishing villages along Long Island Sound, to the pastoral farmland of Litchfield County, there’s no better place to escape the rat race than rural Connecticut. If you’re looking to purchase a home outside the metropolitan area, a USDA rural housing loan could be the ideal financing choice for you.
About USDA Financing
The US Department of Agriculture launched its rural housing loan program in 1991 as a way to boost home ownership in our country’s rural communities. Also known as a rural development loan, this government insured home loan may be ideal for the first-time home buyer, or those with limited cash resources for all those extra expenses normally associated with purchasing a house. With a USDA rural housing loan, there are no down payments, and in many cases, even the closing costs can be financed.
Who Qualifies for a USDA Loan?
USDA loan approval is based on several factors, including the location of the home. Only homes that are located in “rural” areas as officially designated by the USDA can qualify for USDA home financing. Consult the USDA Rural Development website for an eligibility map to see if your Connecticut property qualifies.
