Home Financing Options for Lenders

Think Guaranteed First!

  Do you have clients with no down payment?  Do you have clients with some cash but they do not wish to exhaust all of it to buy a home?   How many times have you pre-qualified an applicant only to realize that the mortgage insurance or higher interest rates keep them out of the price range needed to accommodate their family?   The Rural Development guarantee may be able to help! 

  • Generous income limits
  • Flexible credit and qualifying ratios can help open up a new market of homebuyers.
  • Competitive 30 year fixed rates – no monthly mortgage insurance allows you to offer affordable payments to all homebuyers.
