Using a 100% USDA mortgage is a great way to finance the purchase of your next home in Greene County. These are great loans for those who qualify and the USDA loan remains as one of the true no down payment programs out there. If the home appraisal allows, the closing costs can also be wrapped into the mortgage resulting in no money needed at the closing table. Interest rates for USDA mortgages are comparable to the low fixed rates of Conventional and FHA/VA financing.
Greene County has no geographic restrictions for Single Family Homes under the USDA program. The entire county is USDA eligible.
Benefits of a USDA Rural Development loan include:
- True 100% no money down financing.
- The ability to finance in your closing costs (if the appraised value supports the loan amount)
- The seller may contribute up to 6% of the purchase price towards your closing costs
- No Mortgage Insurance
