USDA Rural LoanI have been reading about the USDA Rural loan. I want to apply and have put in my pre qualification application with the local USDA office. I only put in the application last Tuesday (8/20/2013) but wasn't sure how long the pre-qualification would take? I make 30k a year and have about a 696 credit score. Should I wait for pre-qualification or should I contact a lender for assistance? Any idea on a time frame that is normal for qualification?
