During these tough times of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve been amazed at how many people—celebrities and regular folks alike—have devoted themselves to helping those in need.

This year isn’t what any of us expected, and between coronavirus, lockdowns, social unrest, and natural disasters, many Americans have been inspired to relocate, with an increasing number looking to move away from big cities.

While leaving the city may have some hidden costs, if you have the privilege of remote work and the funds to relocate—you may be looking for a quieter, slower-paced lifestyle in rural America—you’re not alone. According to a recent Realtor report, there was a 15% uptick in rural home searches in May.

With rock-bottom interest rates, you may also be eager to buy a home. But if you’re struggling to save enough for a down payment, there may be an option you haven’t considered: USDA mortgages. Here’s what to know about these loans.
