Homebuyers often ask how they can find houses eligible for USDA mortgage financing? The new 2019 USDA Eligibility Map here will help buyers identify the address and locations that are currently eligible. Keep in mind a few things when searching for eligible properties.
- When inputting the property address, leave out the city name and state. Just include the street number, street name and zip code.
- Buyers can view large areas on the map by zooming in or out.
- The eligible locations are not flexible. The property much show eligible in order to be approved for USDA financing. Remember with USDA financing the location on the home is the important factor, not who is selling the home.
