“The Number of USDA Mortgages Continue to Fall”

“The Number of USDA Mortgages Continue to Fall”

I continue to read that USDA loans continue to fall and that has also been the case in my practice but, is there any wonder? There are a number of reasons such as, there are less allowable towns, there was recently an increase in the fee (it was 2% and now 2.75%) and the guidelines continue to be more restrictive. The truth is this is all by design.

 

This type of loan has had the lowest default rate in spite of requiring NO money down. Same is the case for VA loans, again no money down, again the same minimal default rate. The majority of these borrowers pay their bills especially their mortgage.

 

This is just another way to reduce home ownership. How does this make any sense and yet we keep hearing that our leaders are focused on creating more home ownership. Do you thing they are making this stuff up?

 

Hopefully, once there is a new President in office we get back to removing many of the restrictions that are hampering home ownership. Do you see that happening?
