Texas USDA Mortgages - How They Work

USDA Home Loan

Texas Rural development loans are also known as Section 502 loans. The government created USDA loans in the 1990s to make it easier for low-income families in rural areas to become homeowners. This type of loan is available for many Texas borrowers because 97% Texas is classified as rural area.

If you want to live in a rural area, and you meet the income requirements, a Texas USDA loan may be the best option for you. USDA primary advantages are low interest rates and up to 100% financing. There’s no prepayment penalty and no down payment required, but you will be locked into a fixed rate if you take out a USDA mortgage loan. ARM mortgages are not available for USDA loans in Texas.  USDA loans do require private mortgage insurance, which your loan officer can help better explain. Your Houston USDA loan specialist!

As a realtor here in Austin, TX, I’ve been working with Lone Star Financing for almost a decade. The loan officers at Lone Star financing are without a doubt the best communicators in the business. They provide timely updates to me and my buyers from the start of the loan to close of sale and I can't tell you how important that is during a real estate transaction. I recommend all of my clients use Lone Star financing because unlike a lot of mortgage companies they can close loans on time. During one of the most critical times of my customers lives, it's imperative that all links of the chain are strong. Having the right lender in place is key. Thanks Lone Star!

I have gone through the home financing five times, and this is my second re-finance. The team at Lone Star Financing was the best experience I've ever had going through the mortgage process. The previous finance company I used to purchase my home was the worst experience I'd ever had in getting a mortgage. I was extremely hesitant to go through the re-finance process, but with the interest rates being so low I knew I would be saving a lot of money. I did the research to find a highly reviewed local financing company, and Lone Star Financing was the best. They did an outstanding job helping me through the process, made it incredibly easy and quick. More...

Thanks for helping us through the loan refinance process. P.S. The only reason we can't refer family and friends is we don't live in Texas or have any contacts there!
