Can I buy a Home With No Down Payment in Knoxville and East Tennessee

Zero Down Home Loan Knoxville and East Tennessee


One of the little known benefits of buying real estate the smaller towns and rural areas outside of Knoxville, Oak Ridge and Maryville, Tennessee in is that homes in most of these areas qualify for the USDA-Rural Development Zero Down Payment Home Loan   That means that under the guidelines of this government-backed mortgage program, the borrower is not required to make a down payment nor are they required to have a monthly private mortgage insurance premium.

The USDA No Down Payment Prorgram in Knoxville and East Tennessee has been changed to require  monthly fee for the program.  However, the monthly fee is less than 1/3 of the fee of an FHA Loan.

On a $125,000 home, the savings is two-fold: First, borrowers saves $4,687 in respect to the required FHA down payment (3.5%) and two, borrowers save $90/month in MI (monthly mortgage insurance). These two savings make this program a great opportunity for first time homebuyers; helping them qualify for more home for less money.

There are however three main requirements for qualifying for this program:

(1) The borrower must not exceed the annual household income requirements (example. a family of 1-4 must not exceed a household income greater than $74,050 per year.)  I recommend a  quick phone call to discuss your ‘total household income' under USDA guidelines.

(2) Second, the borrower must purchase a home in a USDA-RD approved region.  I have provided a link where you can by-pass the map and type in the physical address to get instant verification - CLICK HERE to verify a USDA eligible address.(I have also included a map of the eligible areas around Knoxville below. 

(3) USDA Credit Score Guidelines. The USDA program is about as "flexible" as any home loan program available today. In some cases, borrowers may even qualify with collections or  a recent bankruptcy,

If you are interested, I offer all of my clients a Free No Obligation Mortgage Credit Analysisto formulate a clear game-plan for establishing A+ credit and detailing the home buying process.
