Are There No Zero Down Home Loans in Lake Stevens for 2011?
As the title asks, Are There No Zero Down Home Loans in Lake Stevens For 2011?
Last year, the super popular USDA Mortgage program ran put of money toward the end of April. This was because the demand for the program was more than expected.
There is no news of a similar shortfall of funds for 2011, but it is still early in the year. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) program for Rural Development has been key factor for helping homeowners obtain a Zero Down Home Loan in Lake Stevens.
Zero Down Home Loans in Lake Stevens are very hard to come by these days due to the sub-prime market meltdown. However, the USDA Rural Development program offers 100% financing (no money down) and also requires no mortgage insurance. Seller concessions are not as limited and the borrowers can be gifted the money for closing costs. The credit requirements are modest and actually don't have a minimum credit score limit!
There are 2 programs within the USDA Rural Development agenda. The Direct program and the Guaranteed program both offer the same benefits but the income requirements are different. The Direct program is for low income borrowers and the Guarantee program is for medium income borrowers.
Hopefully we will not run into the same shortfall of funds for this loan program like we did last year, but there are a few home market factors in this area that that seems to show more demand. Because Home prices have dropped so much, on many trasactions as of late, we have seen multiple offers. Boeing is hiring 11,000 workers in Washington State this year, so that will increase demand for this $0 Down Home Loan.
