USDA loans are an excellent option for homebuyers who prefer to live in a rural setting. This program, which is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture, assists approved lenders in providing low- and moderate-income households the chance to own adequate, decent, and safe dwellings as their primary residence in eligible rural areas.
Also referred to as farm loans, USDA loans are guaranteed by the government and provide mortgage insurance to lenders to protect against potential financial loss.
