Property Eligibility Map

USDA loans can only be used when the house is in a USDA approved area.

It will let you know if the property is in a eligible USDA area.

Income Eligibility

USDA requires that all household income from adults over the age of 18 is used in the income calculations. The strict Debt to Income levels that USDA requires can make it a little confusing. ReNew will do the income calculations for you. If you would like to check yourself you can use the USDA website by clicking the Check Income Eligibility button.
