USDA Guaranteed Loans are the most popular rural development mortgage program in California.  Along with no down payment requirement, USDA loans don’t have set maximum loan limits for the guaranteed mortgage program. Instead, local limits are determined by a combination of the area USDA maximum income limit and the applicant’s debt-to-income ratio.

This approach means that the maximum loan limits for Guaranteed Loans are variable, with California USDA income limits playing a major role.  Guaranteed Loan income limits across CA are listed below.
