Question on FHA/USDAI am currently trying to get a house and had been approved for FHA at 195,000 with 3.5% down, when I asked about USDA I was told that the automated system wouldn't approve it and I would have to aim for a lot less. My question being is if I have the credit score and income for FHA, why would it be so hard to get approved for USDA at the same amount or at least close?
