USDA- Rural Housing "Out of Funds"

Mortgage and Lending with Guild Mortgage Company

Garanteed Rural Housing is unable to issue Loan Note Guarantees until Congress restores the funding authority (I have not heard when this will be) Once funding is restored on these loans, there are two possible scenarios:

•1.        The funding fee will remain at the present Congressionally authorized rate of 2%; in which case the lender will have to apply the difference to the principal; or

•2.       The funding fee will be increased to 3.5% as proposed in present legislation.

It's see a game of wait and see.  I know that some mortgage companies are still funding these loans, but we are not.  Not knowing what the final outcome of the program terms will be is just too great of a risk.
