Qualifying for a MA USDA Mortgage
Although the USDA Rural Housing program is more flexible than ever before and provides outstanding benefits, it does come with strict guidelines. Here are a few:
- The home must be used as the borrower's primary residence. It cannot be used as a rental, investment property, or second home.
- The borrower must meet certain income requirements.
- There is a limit on the loan amount because the program is designed for modest dwellings.
