I am re-blogging this information from John Cannata  a loan officer in Frisco Texas because Rural Development Loans are  also very popular in Lake Charles, LA.

The change John refers to that is coming October 1 will be an annual fee USDA charges based on the loan amount.  100% Rural Development finanacing is a great option for many Lake Charles buyers searching for homes in Southwest Louisiana.   Craig Boudreaux of Louisiana Mortgage Associates in Lake Charles can give you information on  eligible areas, in  Lake Charles, Moss Bluff, Westlake, Carlyss and Iowa, LA. 

There are alot of properties listed that qualify for Rural Development Financing, please visit my website for more information I look forward to assisting you!

USDA Will Have Monthly Mortgage Insurance

USDA Rural Development and its loan program were designed to help improve the economy and quality of life throughout rural America. The program continues to remain a wonderful option for qualifying homebuyers, with zero down payment required.

But a change is coming!

Beginning October 1, 2011, for the first time in the history of USDA, the Single Housing Guaranteed Loan Program will have an annual fee. This fee will be calculated based on the guaranteed loan amount and based on the average annual scheduled unpaid principal balance for the life of the loan.

If you're thinking of purchasing a home and you're wondering if you may qualify for a USDA loan, give me a call right away. Home loan rates are still very attractive. Let's see if this program is right for you...before the October 1 fee begins.

Excellent, reblog, Marilyn.  I missed the original and none of my trusty loan officers have sent me the recent update, even though we, too, use the USDA loans for quite a few areas very near Phoenix.

That's good news, the USDA is a very good mortgage program.

Good luck and success.

 If you "know someone in the mortgage industry", I would love to see what the fee would look like based on a 100k sales price.

Doug, I spoke to a loan officer who shared this with me:

RD will lower the up-front guarantee fee from 3.5% to 2% and they are adding a monthly fee similar to monthly mortgage insurance. That factor is .3. that equates to $2000 up-front guarantee fee and $25 monthly fee. The catch is the monthly fee is for the life of the loan. But at $25 on $100,000 loan, that is not big deal. they have not finalized this yet, but usually they do exactly what changes they propose.


This really only added $16 per month to the house note when you compare old way vs. new way using your example of $100,000.   MI on FHA is much higher on a 30 yr loan term, that one is 1.15 factor.

Thanks for the RB Marilyn. I hadnt noticed earlier. I'm curious to see if any additional changes will be made prior to October 1st. Hopefully not, but you never know lately. As you mentioned, it does not appear to be a large increase at this time. But when you are use to no fee for so many years, then its a bit of a change considering this new fee is for the life of the loan.
