Here’s How to Search For Current USDA Eligible Areas

October 10th, 2019 by Sean Stephens

How Do You Find Current USDA Eligible Areas?

It is a key part of the USDA eligibility process to find a home located in a USDA eligible area.  In today’s video, I’ll show you how to find USDA eligible areas.

Also, if you have not yet done so, feel free to check out all of our FREE USDA Resources. There, you’ll find our USDA Blueprint for Success, USDA Condo Approval Steps and more! These educational resources are designed to walk you through important USDA processes for both realtors and home buyers alike.

USDA Eligible AreasWhy Search for Eligibility?

I realize there are certain counties that are completely eligible for the USDA program, but because of eligibility changes it is best to know how to search for a USDA eligible home.

Plus, you don’t want to get caught assuming a property is eligible when it’s not. For example, when you search the city of Land O Lakes, Florida you can see that it is located in an eligible area. However, if you go slightly to the east, it becomes ineligible very quickly.

When looking at properties that are close to ineligible areas, having this eligibility map at your disposal is critical for success!
