What Qualifies for a Rural Area?

  • In general, a rural area is a geographic area that is located outside towns and cities.
  • Typically rural areas have a low population density and small settlements.
  • Rural communities are often farm lands. However, a rural community can also be woodland forests, plains, deserts and prairies.
  • There are few buildings, businesses and people in rural communities. In these communities people live far apart from one another.
  • In Southwest Louisiana, most areas surrounding Lake Charles are considered rural and therefore eligible for this 0% down/100% financing loan program. If you are not sure if you live in a rural area contact Kara Davis today at 337-842-0115.
