    • 720 FICO Score
  • Government  Kentucky VA 30yr Fixed
    • $200,000 Single-Family Purchase of Primary Residence (detached)
    • $200,000 Base Loan Amount (100% LTV and 0% Down Payment)
    • 720 FICO Score
  • Government Kentucky USDA 30yr Fixed
    • $200,000 Single-Family Purchase of Primary Residence (detached)

    • 720 FICO Score
  • Your payment will vary depending on how much you will be borrowing, the interest rate, and the length of your loan. Other factors also need to be taken into consideration, such as your taxes, your insurance, and your PMI, all of which are included in your monthly house payment. Even the value of your home will affect your payment.

    Just as an example, let’s say you are borrowing $250,000.00 for 30 years with an interest rate of 3.800%. If the value of your home is $300,000.00, your property taxes $3,000.00 per year and your insurance is $1,500.00 per year, you can expect to be making a total payment of $1,644.06. This is because you need to pay $1,164.89 toward the actual loan, plus $250.00 for real estate taxes and $125.00 toward insurance.

    Since your loan to value ratio is 83.33%, you will also have to pay PMI for 25 months which will add an extra $104.17 a month. Don’t forget to drop the PMI when the 25 months is complete and you might save yourself some money each month. Canceling your PMI will require a reappraisal of your home in most cases.

USDA Lowers Loan Costs for Kentucky Home Buyers and Home Owners


USDA and Rural Development Lowers Loan Costs for Kentucky Home Buyers and Homeowners
imagescaldwcph.jpg

Under the new guidelines, effective October 1, 2016, USDA announced it will lower its upfront fee from 2.75 percent to 1 percent of the total mortgaged amount. The annual fee will also be reduced from 0.50 percent to 0.35 percent. This change is in effect until September 30, 2017.

USDA Rural Development and its loan program strive to help more families achieve the American dream of homeownership by providing qualifying borrowers the opportunity to own a primary residence in eligible rural areas.

If you or someone you know would like to see if you qualify for a USDA loan, or if you have any other questions about home loans, feel free to call or email me today.

Sincerely,

RURAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR OPERATIONS IN THE ABSENCE OF APPROPRIATIONS


IMPACT OF PROGRAM SHUT-DOWNS
Rural Development’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for economic and community
development activities in rural areas through loans and grants to individuals, businesses,
and communities. The shut-down of RD loan and grant making activities for a prolonged
period of more than two weeks would have an immense adverse impact on the rural
economy. Should RD not be allowed to continue loan and grant making operations for an
extended period, the impact would be substantially more serious.
• No additional loans/grants would be available during the period except for emergency
purposes and to protect the Government’s interest. System generated disbursements
for previously obligated Rental Assistance (RA) funds will continue.
• No new RD rural housing loans or guarantees would be issued, which would result in
a setback in construction start-up, as well as a potentially costly inconvenience to
buyers and sellers depending on a Single Family Housing loan or guaranteed loan 09 18 2013 RD.doc

closing. A more permanent interruption in the program would cause a substantial
reduction in housing available in rural areas relative to population.
• New and expanding businesses would be unable to access loan guarantees to create
new jobs and save existing jobs and with them, the potential taxpayers who would
hold those jobs.
• No loans or assistance for essential community facilities would be made, delaying the
financing of health care, emergency response, and other essential services to rural
communities. Projects already financed that are under construction would be delayed
in having any bridge financing replaced with permanent financing from USDA. A
long-term shut-down would place RD seriously behind in our mission of improving
quality of life and economic opportunity in rural areas with limited income. The
current community facility loan program is one of the very few sources of financing
for essential community facilities in rural areas.
• Travel and training for RD operations would be suspended during the period of shutdown.
• After shut-down operations, RD state and area office employees located in
communities throughout the United States would be furloughed.
• No loans or advances would be made or issued for modernizing rural America’s
electric and telecommunications infrastructure. Borrowers would not be able to
improve service, meet Federal Communication Commission deadlines, or pay off
short-term bridge loans. No advances would be issued to pay invoices on
construction contracts, which could result in defaults on contracts and increase
construction costs. Ultimately, this could lead to RD loan security problems
