USDAUSDA UPDATE: (This is Based on a phone conversation today with our local field office)  The USDA will be issuing a 6 month extension to the ability to operate under the 2000 census data. This will result in the eligibility maps remaining unchanged for the next 6 months…  THIS IS GREAT NEWS since we were sure the maps would be changing October 1, 2012. We only have a limited time to get deals in and approved to take advantage of the great terms the USDA offers. Typically USDA guidelines are locked in upon receipt of their firm commitment, NOT the application date.  Keep in mind that this is still not official until we see it in writing from the USDA. We were told there would be an official E-Mail release shortly.

 CONFIRMED USDA administrative notice 4679 - 9/26/12

To Recap USDA’s Benefits:

·        $0 down

·        NO mortgage insurance- just a LOW Guarantee fee that is 1/3rd the cost of an FHA’s MIP.

Have a great week!

Thanks everyone! Please do keep in mind we are still looking at one month turn times here in FL for USDA approvals so keep those closing dates 45-60 days out (more if you are working with a bog box lender) and hopefully turn times won't worsen!
