Brenham TX USDA Loans

Mortgage and Lending with CrossCountry Mortgage NMLS # 243437

USDA mortgage loans in the surrounding Brenham area are excellent mortgages to help with your home buying needs.

A true 0% down option payment is available to home buyers looking to purchase homes in areas surrounding Brenham, Texas.   Many home buyers realize the importance of keeping their cash reserves for purposes other than a down payment on a home. Thankfully, there is a special government loan  program from the USDA that can assist with this. 

Post closing cash reserves are important to help set up home buyers for success for several reasons.  First, it is always a good plan for a home owner to have at least 6 months reserves on hand for emergencies- such as normal replacement of items like hot water heaters, air conditioning and heating units, washer and dryer, and other appliances like stove, oven, disposal, etc. 

Further, most home owners want to make purchases for new furniture or perhapsNEW WINDOWtreatments like blindsor draperies when purchasing a new home.  So, if we can structure a purchase with little to no out of pocket cash- it is a better idea.

  • Interest Rates are still competitive compared to both FHA and ConventionalLOANS. There is 100% financing  available with small monthly mortgage insurance (consists of about .30% of loan amounts per year).
  • There are 2 great benefits to a USDALOAN: 1. No down payment with 100% financing, and 2. A 30 year fixed interest rate.

  • USDALOANS area available in most areas of the State of Texas- but not all.  Brenham, for instance, generally most areas around the fringes to the north, east and south are eligible.

A very easy and efficient way to determine if you are in an eligible area is by visiting this website and putting in your address:

You want to find an authorized USDA lender for the best service that is aMORTGAGE banker rather than a broker so that there won't be any delays in getting YOUR LOAN approved.  Further, make sure you  dealwith a MORTGAGE LENDER who is proficient in all aspects of a USDA LOAN- as the ultimate structure of YOUR LOAN and your purchase contract can save you thousands of dollars at time of closing.

For instance, a contract can be structured where the seller gives a buyer seller contributions- which can cover other closing costs such as title policies, setting up your escrow ACCOUNT for future taxes and insurance- and to purchase your initial insurance policy. 

There are even some provisions for possible purchase of new appliances- so it is important to go with an expert that can process, underwrite and close your USDA 100% LOAN in the Brenham surrounding area in house.
