USDA Loan qualifications typically depend on household income caps, these are then segregated per county. Income caps also include the total household income and not just the person on the loan, but any person that will be residing in the residence. To put into perspective, the average income cap for total household income is about $86,850 a year for a household with one to four people. Once you have more than five people in the household, the income limit will go up dramatically. Typically, areas with higher median income will have higher limits - so be sure to give us a call to verify if your income meet the guidelines for the USDA Loan programs in your area.
