This program assists low and moderate income households the opportunity to own their own home with 100% financing to those that qualify. It is also called the USDA Guaranteed loan program and a is a Federal program offered through the United State Department of Agriculture. When calculating payments you must include an “annual fee” that is charged monthly, however the annual fee is usually less than most mortgage insurance payments.
