Income Eligibility

Contrary to other home loan programs USDA has a maximum amount of money a household can make in a single year. The USDA income limit is determined by the average income earned in a specific county. 

The household income limit in Iowa is $112,850 for a household of up to 4 people. If the household has 5 or more people, the Iowa USDA income limit is $148,950. 

Iowa has different income limits for every county. The limits are based on the average household income in the area. Use the Income Eligibility Tool Below to check your household income.

I consider USDA loans to be the best available loan product for first time homebuyers. Granted VA Loans have some advantages that USDA does not but you also have to be a veteran. For the general public, USDA is still the best loan program available.
