What are the requirements for the USDA program in Pataskala? So that’s going to be looking at a 640 minimum credit score requirement.
There is a income requirement too when applying for a USDA Loan Pataskala.
So basically the income requirement is about 78,000 if you’re in a family of 1 to 4 if you’re in a family of 5+ that’s gonna go up to about $103,000 on the income limit.
The big requirement for USDA is that it’s property specific.
It’s got to be in a USDA Approved Zone. How much down payment does this program require?
It’s actually 0% down payment which is Great!
Ok Awesome, and how much does the average home buyer come in with out-of-pocket?
So because your down payment for a USDA Loan in Pataskala is covered you’re just gonna have to come in with again your prepaid and closing cost So if it was a $300,000 purchase.
you’d be looking at about $7,500 cash for keys to get in the home.
What type of home buyer is the USDA Loan program Ideal for? So this is going to be ideal for the home buyer that’s looking for a property in those specific areas.
Ideally it’s properties that are going to be USDA Eligible rural zones.
So not right in the middle of the city, but maybe if it’s more on the outskirts, on a little bit of land, lower tax rate areas that’s probably going to be a property that’s eligible and that would be ideal because that one would probably qualify OK, Fantastic.
What is a USDA Home Loan?
I bet you’re wondering, what is a USDA home loan?
Designed with the residents of more rural areas in mind, the United States Department of Agriculture designed its loan program to enrich rural communities by providing affordable home loan options to low-income households that may not be able to secure home financing through other means.
Who has time to stop and smell the roses? You don’t, and this isn’t even a rose.
What are the requirements for the USDA program?
So USDA has a few interesting requirements First of all, you’ll need to have at least a 580 credit score Some lenders require a 620 credit score.
Your household income has to be under the county maximum Like a lot of down payment assistance programs. This is based on family size So 1 to 4 is one category and then 5 and above is a higher threshold for qualifying
What’s unique about this one is the home has to be within a designated area.
So, Typically what that means is.
NOT within a metropolitan area So within our area here (Riverside county) Our local cities around her don’t qualify But we only need to go 10 miles away to where there’s an open area where there’s Several homes that qualify.
USDA stands for United States Dept of Agriculture But it’s NOT a farm loan.
Specifically, they don’t finance this program for farms in Pataskala.
It has to be a Single Family home in the Pataskala area, without a barn structure on the property.
Then it also has some home price limitations.
The Threshold is a little bit lower than say an FHA loan for the loan limits.
Ok, and how does this program differ from other Down payment programs?
So it’s different because it’s not really a down payment program but it allows financing up to a 100% of the purchase price And it’s interesting because you can actually use this program with 1 or 2 of the other programs.
If you need closing cost assistance But, what’s unique it’s a 100% Financing so you don’t need a 2nd or a 3rd lien on the property.
Your interest rates are typically lower than if you combine it with a down payment assistance programs and you don’t have to repay any down payment assistance.
It has a monthly factor It’s like mortgage insurance upfront It’s financed at a monthly component.
Much less than FHA So if you can qualify for this program It’s better than FHA And As I mentioned, rates and payments Are typically lower on this program So USDA is really a great program.
And on average How much does the home buyer have to come in with out-of-pocket?
So Again, we are financing the whole loan Purchase price up to 100% So the only thing remaining is then the closing costs Typically, plan on around 3% of the purchase price for funds to close.
The question there then becomes, Well, Where does that come from? Typically, we ask the seller to cover those costs And if we can get the seller to cover 3% Then, the buyer may only need to come in with an earnest money deposit.
And they may even get most or all of that back.
If the seller is covering all the fees.
One unique feature about USDA Versus all other loans is that if the home appraises for more than the purchase price.
We can finance the closing costs up to that appraised amount So, no other loan I know that we can actually finance the closing costs.
What type of home buyer is this program ideal for?
So certainly those that don’t have access to money for a down payment Anyone that wants to live that doesn’t have to live within a metropolitan area because, again, the house has to be in an area that is not in a high densely populated area.
It’s also suited well for people who have some credit issues and anybody that qualifies for this program would definitely be better served than going FHA so those type of people.
And besides the Area restrictions are their any other property restrictions? So property restrictions are going to be similar to FHA They’ll do manufactured homes.
They’ll do homes with Casitas So no real other restrictions.
Just if it conforms to the FHA guides then it should qualify for USDA There’s a couple little quirky things that you don’t run into very often like you can’t actually have a barn on the property It definitely can’t be for agricultural purposes It has to be for residential purposes.
USDA Loans in Pataskala – Do You Pre-Qualify?
hey this is Rich from Rich on Moneytoday we're going to talk about VA loans how to get a VA loan everything about VAloans I'm going to get through quickly before I do that let me first talk alittle bit about Who I am again my name is Rich Carey I have a website calledwwww rich on money.
Com and it's a website where I talk about real estate Ihave 20 properties that are paid off they're all in Alabama I've collectedthem mostly while serving overseas in the military as I talk about how I dothat on my website I have a conservative conservative approach to investing andto real estate and I kind of talk about all that stuff on there so if you wantto be awesome I recommend subscribing to my blog andsubscribing to this YouTube page also give this a video a thumbs up if youlike it and I'm going to talk about this VA loan stuff today so um leave me acomment about what you're planning on doing with your va loan whether youalready have one or you're just trying to get one or where you're planning onbuying a house just let me know what your situation is I'd love to know allright here we go let's get into it how to get a VA loanwhat is a VA loan a VA loan is a it's a mortgage that helps veterans finance thepurchase of a home with good learn good loan terms in an interest rate they'retypically better than what you'd see on other mortgages VA loans are notactually made by the VA they're made by lenders you know just random lenders abunch of different lenders out there will give VA loans the VA is the onethat actually gives a guarantee the VA and the VA doesn't guarantee the wholeloan a lot of people think they guarantee the whole thing the VAguarantees about 25 percent of the loan that gives but that gives the lenders alot more breathing room to give you a lower rate to give you no moneyand you know just to make it easier for military members to borrow money and sothere's no there's this thing called a yeah where I got to find the name ofthat thing County loan limit and the county loan limit for most locations is484 is that right yeah 484 thousand dollars three hundred and fifty that'slike the max you can ball no money down without having to put some extradownpayment on top when you get into more expensive areas it's actuallyhigher than that like Honolulu Denver it goes up to seven hundred twenty-sixthousand dollars and there's a chart that you can link to on my website thattells you what it might be for your area if you think yours might be higher thanthe 484 but there's no limit to how much you can borrow but there is a limit tohow much you can borrow without needing a down payment so I just kind of wantedto point that out who can get a VA loan well you know something there's likethis list of criteria if you are it's open to veterans active duty servicemembers National Guard reservists and there's just like this list of differentthings depending on you if your active duty then you've served at least 90consecutive days during wartime or 181 days during peacetimeyeah six years of service the National Guard you have a spouse of a servicemember who has died in the line of duty like you can go on the website and lookup and see if you think you can get a VA loan and then what you really need to dothough is get a Certificate of Eligibility a CoA and you're gonna getthat from by talking to a lender or that there's actually three different ways toget a Certificate of Eligibility but that's real you'll actually know you'llknow that you're good and you're gonna and that you can get a loan and you canget that three different ways you can apply online using a VA ebenefits portalyou can apply through a VA approved we can apply by mail using a form 26 - 18 8 0 and you have to provide like some proof that want certain documents andthen when you have a Certificate of Eligibility you know you're good to geta loan so who can qualify for a VA loan I guess I mean like income and createyou know credit score I'll say credit score of 620 is about what you needthat's pretty low if your credit score is like a lot lower than 620 I don'tthink you should be trying to get a house loan you should probably be tryingto fix whatever's going on with your financial situation and worrying aboutgetting a house later but 620 can get yourself a loan the theaverage the national average of 699 so it's lower than the national averagethere isn't an income threshold but they want to see stable income and they wantto see if you have enough money left over at the end of the month to pay yourbills and do different things like that you'll be able to like I mean you shouldget pre-approved just like you would for a normal conventional loan go getpre-approved for a VA loan and then you'll have an idea where you stand Iwant to give you the pros and cons of a VA alone some pros there is no privatemortgage and certain insurance no PMI you have to pay those are catch to thatlater but usually if you have less than 20% down you got to pay private mortgageinsurance and that's kind of expensive well that doesn't exist with VA loanshooray next Pro low interest rates they can be as low and then they sometimescan be lower than a conventional loan that's because of the guarantee that theVA can give and that's awesome no money down is usually higher risk but becauseof the guarantees the VA is they guarantee 25 percent of the loan up to acertain limit they can afford to give us low lower interest ratestotally awesome thank you VA thank you government the next Pro I want to talkabout no money down that's a big one being able to finance a property that nomoney down is a huge blessing it can get very interesting because you can even dono money down on a two Plex three Plex four Plexand you can live in that you have to live in it actually you can live in thatfour Plex as long as you live in one of the units you can actually rent out theothers and take those all as income in fact the income from those other eunuchscan actually count towards you qualifying for the loan boy that'sawesome another pro no prepayment penalty now it's kind of rare to haveprepayment penalties this days but VA loans never have prepayment penaltieshere's a con or a bad part of getting the VA loan I said there's no privatemortgage insurance all right but there is something called a funding fee and sothey're gonna get you right they're gonna get you they they're gonna you'regonna pay you know at least a two point one five percent fee on the entire loanif you're gonna be no money down that can be rolled into the loan but you'regonna pay that so that's kind of like another form of a PMI private mortgageinsurance not super excited about that but it's the price to pay to fund the VAand to have no money down that can become lower I think as you pay 10% of20% down but I would argue in that case you might as well just go with theconventional loan the next con I want to talk about is a VA appraisal a lot oftimes when you buy a house with a mortgage the lender is going to order anappraisal and they're gonna make sure everything's hunky-dory this isdifferent than that this is a VA appraisal they're a little more analabout it they're looking for different things they want to make sure the houseis like safe and they're like they actually won't allow the house to be inbad shape at all like it can't be a fixer-upper if there are a lot of thingsthat are broken they will let you close so they're more strict than a normalappraisal would be and if they find things they don't likethey're gonna make somebody fix it before closing so there's two problemsthat the VA appraisal can can can cause for you one is they can make you theycan find a bunch of things that have to be fixed before closing and slow down orprevent the loan from going through number two is the appraisal can come intoo low and that can cause you to have to bring more down payment to the tableto get the loan closed just a problem with the VA the VA appraisal appraiserscan I've heard can be a pain in the ass there's just something to think aboutagain a quick pause to plug myself again if you're enjoying this please like itplease share it tell your friends tell your family rah-rah-rah give me like athumbs up on the youtube there and leave a comment for me thank youthe VA loan process I'm gonna go through like the loan process pre-approvalfinding a property putting a property under contract and underwriting you wantto get pre-approved you just like before you go out and find a property and makean offer you get a letter from the bank saying we've already looked at this guyand we're pretty sure that he qualifies for at least this much money and soyou're gonna have to give them a bunch of your you know w-2s and tax forms andinformation up front so they can give you this like pre-approval letter andyou'll want to do that then you want to go out and find a property which meansyou want to work with the real estate agent should you work with the realestate agent because you got a payment big fat Commission yes you should butyou want to find a very good real estate agent and make sure that they're earningtheir money that 3% to 6% they're gonna know that 3% they're gonna get half ofthe 6% at 3% they're gonna get make sure they're earning it what I've done a lotof my career is I've told real estate agents you're not meeting my needs andif you're not meeting them I'm gonna find somebody else and in some casesI've went and found somebody else they're gonna make a lot of money fromyou so make sure you're happy with them and if you're not happyreal estate agents don't sign something that that means it can't change agentsor something don't don't sign that exclusivity paperwork or whatever theywant you to sign that just tell them like look if I'm unhappy with you I'mgonna I'm gonna change it's just like a common very common sense thing but youneed to go out and find that property you need to put the property undercontract that's the next part of the process putting it under contractinvolves you having certain contingencies right you can say I wantto buy this house and so here's my offer and we're gonna put this under contractbut I'm not gonna buy it unless the following things I'm not gonna buy itunless the VA law or the VA appraisal comes in high enough I'm not gonna buyit unless I do another inspection and I make sure that there's nothing wrongwith a house that I can't accept I'm not gonna buy it you know unless I getfinancing right you can put in these contingencies and that's very importantwith putting the property under contract then there's the underwriting processthe underwriting part is like it's under contract now the real magic happensnow the paperwork gets going now the lender orders the the VA appraisal whichis that thing that I actually you know I've told you is a little bit scarysometimes so that all goes on while the while the appraisal is going on andyou're going and you're finding out that there might be little things that haveto be fixed you can ask the seller to fix it or maybe he's gonna say no andyou have to fix it or maybe you got to walk away while that's going on they'relooking at your financials and they're like oh wait this looks funny give usmore information about this and whenever they have a question you seem to getthem that information very fast so it doesn't slow anything down the next partof the process when they're happy with the appraisal happy with all thepaperwork then you can go to closing right here's the thing I like to talkabout I never go to closing you can go to the closing if you've never been to aclosing a man is what go to wine it's kind of interesting I guess the firsttime it's not interesting that the the third or fourth or fifth timeI don't go to closings you know you can have like your real estate agent that'srepresenting you or somebody else just you can have a power of attorney thatsays you can sign for me and you don't even go to the thing and I don't evenbother going anymore they're all there are alternatives to VA loans and I'lltell you about some of them there's something called an FHA loan an FHA loanis something where you can get is something that's available to everybodynot just military members that meet certain criteria and it's only threepoint five down if you qualify for it so it's something you could check on lookinto it and you have to have at least a 580 credit score which is really low andif you don't have 580 then you got to put 10% down and you do need to pay PMIright 1.
75 percent up front and in in a monthly payment on top of that so theyget you on PMI but three point five down payments not bad then there's somethingcalled a USDA loan a USDA loan is actually called the section 502 singlefamily housing guaranteed loan program it's a zero down payment mortgageavailable in qualified rural or suburban areas it's actually available in about97% of the country the 3% is not available in is essentially in bigcities right every super you know high populated areas essentially like ifyou're in a fairly big city it's probably not available there you shouldcheck check if it's available in your area USDA loans so you can qualifyit's for it's for families that are low to moderate income so you should be likemaking less than a hundred thousand to qualify for this type of loan theyactually want people to be under a hundred thousand to qualify for this notover there's a conventional loan and I'll tell you why I like a conventionalloan in some cases over a VA loan I like a conventional loan because if you havethe 20% down you won't pay the private mortgage insurance and you won'tthe funding fee that's like two point one five percent with the VA law so onthe long run you'd save money over the long run with a conventional loan and20% down over you know a VA loan and you would have put some equity into theproperty and some people are nervous about not putting equity into a propertyme being one of them and buying stuff no money down interest rates of the VAloans they're gonna be lower because of the guarantees that VA is able to giveso that's great and you can refinance with a VA home loan there's twodifferent types of refinances you can do you can do a cash out refinance I thinkyou have to pay point five percent funding fee for that or actually no Ithink it's higher I think it's a higher fee that is you need to pay a prettyhigh you need to pay a higher fee for the cash out refinance they might belike the same the same fee as the original and you got to fill a bunch ofpaperwork you gotta do the the inspection again but you can pull cashout right if the house is worth a hundred thousand more then you do arefinance for the new value of the house and you get a brand new loan but youkeep that you can keep the extra equity as cash and then spend it wherever youwant and that's awesome actually I wouldn't do that but some people mightsay that's awesome they could take the money and do something else some peoplewould take the money and invest in more real estate and they grow faster andthat might be a smart move but if you spend it on like you know whiskey andhookers then that might not actually be a good idea male or female hookerseither one you know equally bad so there's also something called aStreamline refinance interest rate reduction refinance loan I think I saidrefinance try it twice the Streamline refinance also known as interest ratereduction refinance loan that is the one that has a very low fee you just pay thepoint five percent funding fee and then like some verysimple closing costs I think you don't have to order an appraisal becauseyou're not pulling cash out you're simply refinancing to a lower rate itcould happen very fast it's very easy go for itlast point I'm gonna make please like this please subscribe please go to mywebsite and check it out give me some comments last point I'm gonna make youcan assume a VA loan this is very strange but you can assume a VA loanwhat does that mean if I had a VA loan I could let somebody else who wouldqualify for a VA loan assume that loan from me they could take over thepayments take over my interest rate take over my monthly payments and take overthe balance of the loan for me and it would just transfer to them instead ofthem getting an entirely new loan and just like you know me paying off my loanand them getting a new loan literally could just change the loaned over tothem they could assume my loan that could be very lucrative if I got my loanthree or four years ago and that interest rates have went up a lotthey're higher now I could sell somebody a loan that has a lower interest rate sothat's very interesting something to look intoone thing you two things you want to make sure of you want to make sure thatthe bank releases you you know the responsibility to repay the loan if youdo this and you want to make sure that the VA gives you your credit back sothat you can get a VA loan somewhere elseonce you've transferred this VA loan to somebody else the two things you want todo that's everything I have on VA loans in this blog post and on this videotoday I hope it's been helpful this is rich on money signing out.
