USDA Direct Loans – For home buyers who are looking for an affordable mortgage option and like the idea of living in a rural part of the county, Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc. can pre-qualify customers for a great mortgage product. Made available through the United States Department of Agriculture, the 502 Direct Loan program offers mortgages with reduced interest rates, between 1% – 3.75%, along with minimal down payment and closing cost requirements – which makes the mortgage affordable to recipients.
To qualify, a potential home buyer’s income must be below 80% of area median income and they must meet other underwriting guidelines of the USDA.
