VA’s Home Loan Program is for veterans and active duty military personnel (referred to as veterans throughout the rest of the document) and certain members of the reserves and National Guard. VA’s program provides an excellent product and benefit for those individuals who have served or are serving to protect our families and our nation, as well as giving them a form of financing that will allow real estate professionals to sell more homes.
For those who are unfamiliar with the program, there are several advantages to using VA’s Home Loan Program. The VA allows a veteran who qualifies income and credit-wise to purchase a primary residence without putting money down towards the sales price, as long as the sales price does not exceed the appraised value. Veterans do, however, need money towards closing costs and the earnest money deposit, which the seller generally requires when a sales contract is signed. Closing costs may be paid by the seller, which is an item to consider when the sales price is being negotiated.
Other benefits of using VA’s program (other than the 100% financing of the sales price) include:
•Loans are assumable, provided the person assuming the loan is qualified.
•Veterans’ closing costs are limited by VA.
•Additional assistance is offered by VA should veterans have problems making their home loan payments in the future.
•Prepayment of the loan without a penalty.
Here are some quick facts you may find useful concerning purchase transactions:
•VA does not have a maximum loan amount. However, lenders do sell loans on the secondary mortgage market, so they will generally limit loans to $417,000 ($625,500 in Hawaii, Guam, Alaska and U.S. Virgin Islands) with no down payment. With a down payment, loans may exceed these amounts.
•The veteran does have to qualify income and credit wise.
•The veteran does have to occupy the home as their primary residence.
•The veteran does not have to be a first time home buyer and may reuse his/her benefit.
•The lender, not VA, sets the interest rate and discount points, so they may vary from lender to lender.
•There is no private mortgage insurance, but VA does charge an up front VA funding fee, which may be financed. The exception to this is that if a veteran is in receipt of VA service connect disability payments each month, he or she does not have to pay a VA funding fee.
•The seller can pay for closing costs. There is a requirement that seller concessions do not exceed 4%, but only certain items are considered as part of the concession; i.e., payment of pre-paids, VA funding fee, payoff of credit balances or judgments on behalf of the veteran, funds for temporary buydowns (not discount points).
•The veteran is not allowed to pay for the wood destroying insect (termite) report; it is generally paid by the seller.
•VA does not approve the majority of loans. The majority of transactions are handled directly by the lender with little VA intervention.
