This program has been around for as long as I can remember. It is the new and improved version of the Farmers Home Loan.
It has been totally revamped to offer a viable financing option to many purchasers in today’s market place so don’t let the nightmares of long ago influence a decision away from this excellent financing option.
Application to closing is easily accomplished within 30 – 45 days with an experienced lender, which is comparable to any other type of government financing. There is a 2% funding fee that is added to the loan amount, however there is no monthly mortgage insurance premium added to your monthly payment amount. To compare with FHA financing which has an up-front mortgage insurance premium of 1.75% added to the loan amount along with the monthly insurance premium.
