A VA loan is a type of government-backed loan that is available for army veterans. The loan is available to veterans through a program that was developed by the Department of Veteran Affairs.

When compared to all other 100% financing home loans, VA Home Loans are the most affordable – both upfront and on a monthly basis. In nearly all cases, a VA Home Loan is the smartest financing option for those eligible.  VA home loans are one of the best and safest methods to use when buying a home. Even active duty personnel can qualify. If you are a Disabled Veteran, you may qualify for additional benefits on a VA home mortgage loan. The VA Home Mortgage Program does not limit the number of times a veteran may use the program.

VA loan refinancing is available to qualified veteran homeowners. Even if you did not obtain a VA loan when you first bought your home, you still have the opportunity to take advantage of the program. 

The VA mortgage loans extend to not only the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines but also to Reservists and National Guardsmen.

VA loan limits received a massive increase in 2024. The standard VA loan limit in 2024 is $766,550 for most U.S. counties, increasing from $726,200 in 2023.  VA loan limits have also increased for high-cost counties, topping out at $1,149,825 for a single-family home.

VA loan limits do not represent a cap or max loan amount. Veterans with their full entitlement can get as much as a lender is willing to give them without needing a down payment. However, Veterans with one or more active VA loans or who have defaulted on a previous VA loan will encounter the limits, which will in part determine their zero-down buying power.

No Money Down Up to $766,550

You do not have to put any money down to qualify for a VA Home Mortgage Loan for up to $766,550. If the seller agrees to pay the closing costs, you may be able to purchase the home with no out of pocket costs. The loan and sales contract can be set up so that the VA Home Mortgage Loan cover 100% of the selling price and the seller covers the closing cost.

The VA Funding Fee

The Veterans Administration assesses a Funding Fee to all VA loans between .5% and 3%.  If you are a Disabled Veteran, you may qualify to get the fee waived completely.  This fee goes directly to the VA to ensure the VA mortgage loan program is in place for future generations of veteran and military home buyers. When you are a VA borrower, you are able to roll the funding fee over into your loan amount, instead of paying out-of-pocket like you would have to with a conventional loan. With all of these advantages in place, many borrowers are able to purchase a home without any money due at closing.  The VA Funding Fee replaces the much higher priced Mortgage Insurance required when you get a conventional home loan.

Assumable VA Mortgage Loans

VA loans are also assumable. If the person assuming the mortgage is a veteran with VA eligibility, the original veteran will not be giving up the amount of eligibility that they used to get the loan at the beginning. Veterans should use great care and closely investigate the terms of an assumption before allowing someone to assume their mortgage. It is too great a benefit to give up.

Qualifying for a VA Mortgage Loan

The VA offers excellent qualifying standards. The VA does not use credit scoring in their analysis of the loan. Even if you have experienced some financial difficulties in your life that caused your scores to be low but have maintained a good payment record over the past year or so, you may qualify for a VA mortgage loan. This can be a tremendous savings compared to the cost of conventional loans when the borrower's credit scores are low.

VA Mortgage Loans may be refinanced

VA mortgage loans have built in features allowing a loan to be refinanced to a lower interest rate without all of the criteria normally associated with a conventional loan. This is called an Interest Rate Reduction Loan; the veteran can secure a lower interest rate without any credit checks, appraisal, and income or asset verification and can roll the costs of the transaction into the loan so there are no out of pocket costs.
