What is a USDA loan?

USDA loans are mortgages backed by the U.S. Dept of Agriculture as part of its Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan program.

USDA loans are available to home buyers with low-to-average income. They offer home financing with no down payment, reduced insurance, and lower rates. 

USDA – compare to FHA & conventional rates?

Compared to other home loan programs, USDA interest rates are some of the lowest rates that we can offer. USDA rates are typically only matched by the VA loan. At Lone Star Financing we specialize in Texas USDA loans and can close loans fast. 

To get the lowest possible rate and monthly payments, you need an excellent credit score and a low debt-to-income ratio. Making a larger down payment is also factored into your rate.
