Sometimes qualifying for a traditional loan can be cumbersome with restrictions on credit and income. USDA loans are ideal for first-time Colorado homebuyers or anyone who has saved less than 20% for a down payment. USDA loans come with fixed interest rates and no money down.

Those with less than perfect credit scores will be relieved to know that the USDA has flexible credit guidelines. No assets are needed to qualify so you won’t have to worry about putting property up as collateral.

The USDA offers loans to people making low to moderate incomes, living in areas with smaller populations. These loans are backed by the U.S. government, so lenders are more open to lower credit scores and lower incomes. The lender knows that their money is safe

If you experienced sticker shock when you received your real property notice of valuation from the El Paso County Assessor’s office, you’re not alone. Many residents of El Paso County are shocked by one of the sharpest property value increases in recent history. It’s the first time in 14 years, that the county has experienced such a hike which means larger tax bills for residents.

One of the main reasons why people are turned down for a mortgage is a low credit score. That’s why it’s so important to start working on improving your credit score now if you plan to buy a home in the future. Your credit score serves as a numerical summary of your credit history.
