When using the USDA mortgage income calculator, it’s important to remember a few things:
- Input your current GROSS income (before taxes)
- Include the income of all members that will be living in the house – even if they are not part of the actual USDA loan application. Remember, the USDA income limits apply to anyone that earns money in the house. This includes any elderly that receive disability income, social security, etc. Or any minor child that has a part time, etc. The exclusion to this would be a working minor child that is also a full time student.
- The 502 Guaranteed income limit for a standard household of 1-4 people is around $75,000 in most parts of the country. The income limits go significantly higher for household that have 5+ members. Keep in mind the USDA direct program is exclusively reserved for low income households, and these loans are processed only by USDA directly. Most moderate income households will fit under the USDA 502 Guaranteed program, this program is proceed by approved USDA lenders and mortgage companies.
- If your income is close to the set county limit, don’t forget about the income deductions for dependants, child care or disability. This can greatly help offset some income to help you qualify.
- The USDA Rural Housing income limits you see are based on your income at the time of closing, not your future earnings. If your income goes over the limit in the future (as most do) this is fine.
- The income limits are firm, there are no expectations.
