No Downpayment Loan (100% Financing) Amongst the several advantages of the USDA program, the ability to put zero-down and get 100% financing is one of the most significant benefits. They are one of only two types of mortgage loans that require no down payment, the other being VA loans. These benefits make these loans perfect for first-time home buyers.

Low Mortgage Insurance Premiums USDA mortgages have the lowest mortgage insurance premium of any home loan program besides the VA, which requires no mortgage insurance. The annual MIP is just 0.30%. When compared to the FHA PMI fee of 0.85%, the savings is substantial.

On a $200,000 home, PMI on an FHA loan is $1700 per year. A $200,000 home, USDA PMI will be just $600 annually, a savings of $1100 per year. There is a one-time up-front mortgage insurance payment of 1% of the loan amount that is added into the loan. Borrowers save an average of $100 per month with a USDA home loan over FHA loans because of the reduced mortgage insurance.
