Guaranteed Loan Program

Guaranteed Loan Processing Time- Current turn time in South Dakota is 24 - 48 hours. Business days exclude weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and all federal holidays. All loan applications are processed in the order they are received. "Rush requests" will not be processed any differently than all other requests. Please schedule processing times accordingly.

Guaranteed Loan - Prohibited Purposes- Properties with income producing potential, as well as with non-essential buildings (guest houses, horse corral, barns, etc.) are ineligible. Small storage sheds and small pump houses are acceptable. Properties that are ff grid have catchment or cistern water systems, and/or have large acreage are also prohibited. Unpermitted additions are not eligible. Unpermitted, converted garage space must be converted back to its original use.

"Flipping Rule"- USDA does not have a specific guideline regarding how long the subject property must be owned by the seller. It is the lender's responsibility to insure that the appraised value is based on the most current and accurate data available.
