    More Information About VA Loans

    Who is Eligible for a VA Loan?

    A VA loan is a mortgage that’s backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for those who have served or are presently serving in the U.S. military. The list of those who may be eligible for this home-buying benefit includes:

    1. Veterans
    2. Active-duty personnel
    3. Reserve members
    4. National Guard members
    5. Surviving spouses

    To qualify for a VA loan, you must also have suitable credit, sufficient income, and a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE), and you must use the home as your primary residence.

    VA Loan Benefits

    VA loans carry significant benefits for those who qualify, such as:

    1. No down payment is required, unless your purchase price exceeds the VA loan limits for your area.
    2. No monthly mortgage insurance premium (MIP) or private mortgage insurance (PMI) is required.
    3. VA loans typically have lower average interest rates than other loan types.
    4. The VA limits the amount you can be charged for closing costs, and sellers are allowed to pay all of your loan-related closing costs as well as up to 4 percent in concessions.
    5. VA loans do not have prepayment penalties.
    6. VA loans are assumable, as long as the person assuming the loan qualifies.
    7. The VA may be able to provide assistance if you have issues making payments

    VA Loan Funding Fee

    A VA funding fee is required for VA loans, but veterans with a service-related disability may be exempt. This fee is paid to the VA to help fund the VA home loan program. It can be paid up front at closing or financed into your loan. The amount you’ll pay depends on your type of service, loan amount, down payment and subsequent VA loan usage. Here’s a look at the loan limits for each scenario:
