A VA loan is a mortgage loan in the United States guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Its purpose is to offer long-term financing to eligible American veterans or surviving spouses (provided they do not remarry). This program is to provide home financing to eligible veterans in areas where private financing is not generally available and to help veterans purchase properties with no down payment. Eligible areas are designated by the VA as housing credit shortage areas and are generally rural areas and small cities and towns not near metropolitan or commuting areas of large cities.

VA MORTGAGE FINANCING OPTIONS
The VA loan allows veterans 103.15 percent financing without private mortgage insurance or a 20 percent second mortgage and up to $6,000 for energy-efficient improvements. In a refinance where a new VA mortgage is created, veterans may borrow up to 90% of reasonable value, allowed by state laws. In a refinance where the loan is a VA mortgage refinancing to VA mortgage (IRRRL Refinance), the veteran may borrow up to 100.5% of the total loan amount. The additional .5% is the funding fee for a VA Interest Rate Reduction Refinance.
VA mortgages allow veterans to qualify for loan amounts larger than traditional Fannie Mae or conforming loans. Patriot Home Mortgage can help walk you through this process to gain access to this incredible resource available to American veterans. Contact our team to discuss your VA home loan options.
VA LOAN BENEFITS
No Down Payment
Most loan programs require you to have a downpayment in order to receive mortgage financing, but a VA loan allows you to finance up to 100 percent of the purchase price.
A VA home loan comes with such favorable terms because the federal government backs the loan. That means that the government guarantees that a portion of the home loan will be paid back to the mortgage lender, even if you end up not being able to make the monthly payments. This encourages lenders to offer VA loans to borrowers.
Among the Lowest Rates
A VA loan is one of the lowest-risk home loans available, which means lenders can offer great rates. Most home loan programs require a higher down payment and credit scores than VA loans, which means that if you qualify, you can get very favorable rates.
Easier to Qualify for VA Loan
Like any home loan, you need to provide specific financial documents, like credit history and gross income. However, unlike a conventional loan or another type of home loan, the guidelines for a VA loan are more flexible, meaning that you may be able to qualify with a higher credit score or lower monthly income than you would for a different type of home loan.
Closing Costs May Be Lower
The VA limits the closing costs that lenders can charge for those who receive a VA loan. This makes buying a home more affordable and accessible. If you’d like to learn more about closing costs and how these fees affect the home buying process, contact Patriot Home Mortgage in St. George or Mesquite.
No Mortgage Insurance
Typically, mortgage lenders require you to buy mortgage insurance to protect the lender in case you default on the home loan. Because a VA loan is backed by the government, you most likely will not have to pay mortgage insurance.
