Own a home in South Carolina with zero money down
For South Carolinians looking to buy or refinance a home in a rural part of the state, a USDA Rural Housing loan could be a great option. Started in 1949 and backed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this program was designed to help people realize their dreams of home ownership and stimulate housing in less developed areas.
The benefits USDA home financing include:
- Eligible borrowers can receive up to 100% financing
- Closing costs may be included in the loan amount
- Even if you don’t consider your area “rural,” it’s worth checking with an eLEND home loan specialist to see if properties in your area are eligible. Buyers are often surprised to learn that homes in fairly populated locations qualify for USDA mortgage financing.
USDA loan eligibility details
Eligibility is based on both the borrower and the property. For the borrower this includes credit history, income, assets, other debts and financial obligations as well as other criteria. In addition, something that is a little unusual in the mortgage marketplace, the borrower’s income must fall below the Maximum Adjusted Household Income for the state and county in which the property is located. This limit varies by county based on average income. For example this limit will be much higher in higher cost parts of the country and lower in more affordable areas. The limit also changes based on the number of people in the household and other factors. Talk an eLEND USDA home loan professional to learn more and see if you are likely to qualify.

With competitive rates and a team of home loan specialists at your service, more and more South Carolinians are discovering how easy it can be to finance a mobile home with eLEND.

- You want to downsize or live a more minimal lifestyle
- you are ready for the responsibility of homeownership, but do not prefer the upkeep and cost of a large house
- you aren’t planning on needing a lot more space in the near future; i.e. starting family, starting a home business, etc.
In order to qualify for our mobile and manufactured home loan programs, there are eligibility requirements. Make sure you speak with one of our mortgage professionals to find out if you qualify. Call 800-634-8616 today to get started!
Please note that eLEND only offers South Carolina mobile home loans for singlewide or doublewide manufactured homes on owned land.
South Carolina mobile and manufactured home loan guidelines
To be eligible for our mobile home loan program, some of the requirements that must be met include the following:
- The home must be a minimum of 400 square feet.
- The home must have been built after June 15, 1976, and in conformance with the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (there will be a certification label to signify this).
- The home must be on a permanent foundation and cannot be located in a trailer park.
- The loan must also cover the land that the manufactured home sits on. If it does not, and the mobile home is on land you do not own, we can still help you! Our personal property loans are *powered by MHL. Talk to one of our home loan specialists today!
