Income Limits

The USDA Rural Housing Program (Section 502) guarantee program was created to help boost rural development by extending credit to people with moderate income.

Moderate income is defined as the greater of 115% of the U.S median family income or 115% of the state-wide and state non-metro median family incomes or 115/80ths of the area low-income limit. These limits are based upon both the local market conditions and the family size. The moderate income guarantee loan limit is the same in any given area for households of 1 to 4 people & is set to another level for homes of 5 to 8 people. The following table lists examples of limits from a few select areas of the country.

Location 1 to 4 Person Limit 5 to 8 Person Limit
Fort Smith, AR-OK MSA $78,200 $103,200
Northwest Arctic Borough, AK $157,850 $208,350
Oakland-Fremont, CA HUD Metro $145,700 $192,300
San Francisco, CA HUD Metro $202,250 $266,950

The floor values on the above limits are $78,200 and $103,200 respectively. Homes with more than 8 people in them can add 8% for each additional member. You can view income limits in your local area here.

Loan Amount Limits

Loans can be used for regular, manufactured or modular homes which are no more than 2,000 square feet in size.

The effective loan limit starts at $265,400 in low-cost areas and goes as high as $631,000 in expensive (or high-cost areas) in states like California.

USDA Loan Refinancing Limits

Currently borrowers obtaining a USDA cash out refinance loan on their property have a loan-to-value limit of 80% on the property. This would mean if a property was valued at $100,000 the maximum loan amount for a cash-out refinance would be $80,000.

The previous limit before the change was announced on August 1, 2019 was 85%.

How do USDA Loans Compare Against Normal Conforming Mortgages?

On regular conforming mortgages private banks offer funding & typically desire borrowers to put down 20% of the home's value to minimize the risk of loss to the lender in the event a foreclosure takes place. If the borrower puts less than 20% down they are required to pay property mortgage insurance (PMI) until the loan balance to home value (LTV) falls below 80%.

USDA loans do not require a downpayment, but they do have two important fees associated with them. One is an upfront funding fee and another is an annual fee which acts similarly to PMI. The upfront fee can be rolled into the loan.

Periodicially the fees associated with a USDA loan change to reflect the costs of running the program. The last major change was announced on September 1, 2016 when the upfront guarantee fee dropped from 2.75% to 1% and the annual fee was lowered from 0.5% to 0.35%. Both the upfront funding fee and the annual insurance premium are far cheaper on USDA loans than the equivalent FHA fees.

USDA Mortgage Insurance Premium.

The following table highlights the cost of these fees on a $250,000 home.

Fee Type Upfront Fee Annual Fee
Rate 1.0% 0.35%
Upfront Amount $2,500 rolled into loan $0
Annual Amount $0 $875.00
Equivalent Monthly Amount $0 $72.92
As the principal balance is reduced, the associated monthly amount declines.
