100% USDA Mortgage in Cambria County, Pennsylvania

Looking to buy a home in Cambria County, Pennsylvania?

You might want to make a quick check to see if you and the property are eligible for a Pennsylvania USDA Mortgage, also known as a Pennsylvania USDA Rural Development Loan.

 Here's Why... 

USDA home loans offer a few benefits that other mortgage programs cannot match: including no down payment and financed closing cost. If the home appraisal allows, the closing costs can also be wrapped into the mortgage resulting in no money needed at the closing table.

USDA is the only mortgage program that allows for all closing costs to be financed into the loan amount on a home purchase.  Interest rates for USDA mortgages are comparable and often lower than the low fixed rates of Conventional, FHA and VA financing.USDA Mortgage Pennsylvania

  • True 100% no money down financing.

  • The seller may contribute up to 6% of the purchase price towards your closing costs
  • Low fixed interest rates.
  • More flexible credit qualifying guidelines with minimum 620 credit score
  • Often available for properties in towns and suburbs too
