Val, this is a good tool to see if a property falls in areas that are eligible for USDA Rural Housing financing.  You type in the complete property address and zip code (no commas).  Buyers can get 100 % financing of course for any properties that are in eligible areas (generally outside the city).

 

There is a maximum income.  In general, the household (all buyers) income has to be under $74,250.  The income can be a little higher depending on how many dependents they have under 18.
