In addition, VA loans also offers very flexible underwriting guidelines, no monthly mortgage insurance and very competitive financing options.

Why is the VA Purchase So Great?

The VA Home Purchase Program is one of the most attractive purchase loans due to its low cost as well as flexible underwriting process that allows for compensating factors. For example a high credit score, low debt to income ratio, or even assets can help offset negative factors on your application. A VA lender may even consider other types of payment history like rent or utilities when making a decision on an approval. This common sense type of manual underwriting can make the difference when it comes time to get approved for your VA loan. In addition to this by not having a down payment requirement it will save the veteran literally thousands at closing.

  • The funding fee for first time use is 2.15% for a veteran of active duty and 2.4% for National Guard or Reservist
  • For second or subsequent use the funding fee is 3.3% for a veteran of active duty and 3.3% for National Guard or Reservist

With this entitlement and underwriter approval, you can obtain a loan in an amount up to $417,000 or more; some high cost counties have even higher limits.

The DD Form 214 is proof of your military service and issued upon a military service member’s retirement, separation or discharge from active-duty military.
