USDA Has Funds Available For Home Financing

USDA Has Funds Available For Home Financing 

Effective 06/1/2010

Effective June 1, 2010, USDA Home Loan financing is available to homebuyers.  However there are some major changes to the program.

First: The USDA Funding Fee is no longer 2.00% (two percent)

Second: The "NEW" USDA Funding Fee is 3.50% (three and a half percent)

Third: The GUS System (Guarantee Underwriting System) is currently turned off.  This means that the homebuyer's qualification will be strictly adhered to the USDA Guidelines.

**With GUS; the homebuyer can potentially qualify for a higher sales price

Ted....That's a big jump in the funding fee!  I guess they have money, so they can charge for it!  I'll be interested to see how many people use this program.
