How Do I Calculate USDA Mortgage Funding Fee?

How Do I Calculate USDA Mortgage Funding Fee?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides a government guarantee of mortgage loans in rural areas. USDA-guaranteed loans can be used to finance the purchase, construction or repair of a fixer-upper home. The loans are limited to homes that are affordable and modest in size. Home buyers can apply for a Kentucky UDSA mortgage through the same lenders that are approved to offer VA and FHA insured loans.
