Proposed USDA Changes Eliminate USDA Home Loans for 90% of Arizonans

 64 Communities in 7 Arizona Counties Slated for Removal from USDA Rural Home Loan Eligibility

 “Will I be able to get a USDA Home Loan to buy a house?”  The question used to revolve around two main things:  (1) your ability to qualify for the loan and (2) the geographical location of the home.

 No more.  As I write this tonight from Tucson, Arizona, the future of the USDA Home Loan Program for most of the Arizona communities that presently qualify is in jeopardy, and could come to a screeching halt at the end of September of this year.  …and it’s not just Arizona.

 The future of USDA Rural Home Loans is tied up in a huge piece of legislation called “The Farm Bill,” and to no one’s surprise, Congress can’t get its act together.  On July 31, they left on a six week (paid) vacation without extending the present Farm Bill, which will expire at the end of September 2012.

Hi Mike -

Any update on the timing on the changes...or whether or not they are going to do this??

The House has passed, and we expect the Senate to pass a bill that will keep all the boundaries just as they are presently.  Keep your fingers crossed.  I'll post something when that happens.
