VA Loan and Your New Home

Are you thinking about buying a more expensive home? Did you serve our Country and have VA financing benefits? One thing that many buyers don't know is that there is not a cap on financing with your VA loan.  Really?  Yes really.  

With your VA loan, you can get a loan for $424,100 with 100% financing. That is pretty amazing. So what happens if you want to buy a home for more than $424,100.  Out of luck? Have to put the difference down as a down payment? I have great news for you, no you don't.

So here is the concept of how it works:

$424,100 is 100%

Above $424,100, the rule of this is that Veteran needs to pay $0.25 for every $1 above. 

So if you are buying a $600,000 home here is an idea of what the numbers would look like:

Purchase price $600,000

Difference between $600,000 and $424,100 = $175,900

Required Downpayment = $43,975.  

Wow.  A little over 7% downpayment on  a luxury home.

So you will nee dot be able to qualify of course however it is a great way to get into a new home with less down payment.
