Yes, you can POSSIBLY get a USDA loan at 102% - but ONLY if the appraisal is 102% of the purchase price or higher. I do a LOT of USDA loans in MN, WI, and SD... Learn more at

Hello, the USDA loan is 100% loan and the guarantee fee (mortgage insurance) and reasonable and customary closing costs can be financed into the loan bringing the actual loan to value over 100%. I am doing a USDA loan right now for a couple in Saratoga Springs and it is 100% loan with the guarantee fee financed. The closing costs are being paid by the seller. If you have any questions, please give me a call at 801.550.1222. I am very familiar with USDA loans. Linda Miller.

USDA allows for 102% financing because they do 100% financing on the home and they allow you to finance the 2% USDA funding fee, for a total of 102%. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
