Minnesota Areas that Qualify for Rural Development Loans

One of the biggest hurdles facing the USDA Loans Program (Also referred to as the Rural Development Loan Program) is the perception that these federally backed loans are associated with agriculture. In truth, the Rural Development Loan Program was designed to help build many of the nation’s smaller communities, which means that many Minnesota communities located near larger metropolitan areas are eligible. To qualify, your Minnesota property must be outside of the city limits and located within a community of less than 20,000 people.

If you have more questions about USDA Loan Eligibility, Consumer Real Estate Finance Co. is here to answer all your questions. Our certified loan agents will walk you through the application process and offer advice on USDA Loan eligibility. For more information, please fill out the application on this page, or call one of our certified USDA loan agents at 1-866-854-4242.

Minnesota’s USDA Loan Income Limits by County

USDA Eligibility restrictions for Minnesota USDA Loans also include the county and zip code the property resides in, as well as, your past credit history and number of dependents.

In addition, because they are designed for families with moderate to lower incomes, the income of homebuyers looking into a Minnesota Rural Development Home Loan cannot exceed their county’s set limit:
