Even if you do not consider your area “rural,” you may be surprised to learn there are eligible properties nearby. To qualify for a USDA rural development home loan a borrower must meet income (people who earn above a certain threshold are ineligible), credit, and employment requirements and be a US citizen, Resident-Alien, or a qualified non-Resident Alien.
