64 Communities in 7 Arizona Counties Slated for Removal from USDA Rural Home Loan Eligibility
“Will I be able to get a USDA Home Loan to buy a house?” The question used to revolve around two main things: (1) your ability to qualify for the loan and (2) the geographical location of the home.
No more. As I write this tonight from Tucson, Arizona, the future of the USDA Home Loan Program for most of the Arizona communities that presently qualify is in jeopardy, and could come to a screeching halt at the end of September of this year. …and it’s not just Arizona.
The future of USDA Rural Home Loans is tied up in a huge piece of legislation called “The Farm Bill,” and to no one’s surprise, Congress can’t get its act together. On July 31, they left on a six week (paid) vacation without extending the present Farm Bill, which will expire at the end of September 2012.
