For people with moderate incomes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) home loan can be a perfect way to buy a house.  You won’t need a down payment and mortgage insurance rates can be substantially less than you’d pay on a traditional mortgage loan. There’s also no limit to the loan size if you meet credit and income requirements. The program’s flexible approval rules make this a great option for many eligible homebuyers. For all the details visit the USDA’s website.
