The USDA Loan is a great program to purchase a home with no down payment, and typically lower payment than other popular loan programs. The home must be in an eligible rural area defined by the USDA. These are typically rural unincorporated areas with under 50,000 inhabitants.
If you and your family make less than the maximum income limit for your area and family size, and the home is in an eligible area surrounding Redding, CA, this program is a great opportunity with little to no money down. Income limits and eligible areas change everywhere, so it is very important to speak to a USDA RD Loan expert before looking for your next home.
