FAQs

  • What is a VA Home Loan?

    A mortgage for veterans and service persons.  The loan is guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and requires low or no down payment.

  • What is a VA Funding Fee?The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) charges a Funding Fee to most veterans who obtain a VA mortgage loan to help sustain the VA home loan program. The VA Funding Fee is a percentage of the principal loan amount and is due at closing. The amount of the VA Funding Fee varies depending on specifics of the transaction. The full amount can usually be financed as part of the loan amount or paid in cash.
  • Who is exempt from the VA Funding Fee?Only veterans receiving VA disability are exempt from paying the VA Funding Fee.
  • What service is not eligible for a VA Home Loan?

    You are not eligible for VA financing solely based upon Active Duty for Training in the Reserves or National Guard. Note: Guard and Reservists are eligible if they were “activated” under the authority of title 10 U.S. Code as was the case for the Iraq/Afghanistan.

  • What is the maximum VA loan?Although there is no maximum VA loan (limited only by the reasonable value or the purchase price), lenders generally limit the maximum VA loan to $417,000.
  • If I was discharged years ago and want to qualify for a VA loan, what other documents will I need?Everyone is required to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility. If you do not have this Certificate, you will need to apply using VA Form 26-1880 and this will require a copy of DD-214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty) showing character of service. Along with the Certificate of Eligibility, loan applicants will need to document their credit, savings and employment information.
