A lot of home buyers realize the significance of keeping their cash reserves for other purposes than home down payment.

Fortunately, a special USDA loan government program is available that can help with this.


An important part (for several reasons) for home buyers success is post closing reserves.


It is always a good idea for the owner of a home to have 6 months or more of reserves on hand in case of emergencies, so that items can be replaced like oven, disposal, stove, air conditioning/heating and hot water heaters 

Next, many home owners want to purchase new furniture or even new window treatments like blinds and draperies when they buy their new home.
