Mortgage companies and loan officers telling borrowers and REALTORS they have guaranteed USDA money is plain and simple not true

Mortgage companies and loan officers telling borrowers and REALTORS that THEY have guaranteed USDA money is plain and simple not true. The only way to guarantee a loan from USDA is to have USDA approve the loan and issue the certificate.
