Government Loan Quick FAQs

VA Home Loans
– Veteran does require a certificate of eligibility
– VA does not have a maximum loan limit
– 100% financing is available
   (up to county loan limits)
– VA limits veterans closing costs
– Closing costs may be paid by seller

Updated 06/01/2014 - While VA does not have a maximum loan amount, the following county “limits” must be used to calculate VA’s maximum guaranty amount for a particular county. These limits apply to all loans closed February 28th, 2014 through December 31, 2014. The new maximum guaranty amount for San Diego county is $546,250. Riverside County's maximum guaranty amount remains at $417,000. SOURCE: United States Department of Veterans Affairs (Document)

Effective 07/01/2012 - Change in Timeliness Requirements for Appraisals for Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico: VA appraisers will now have 7 business days to complete and upload an appraisal from the date it is ordered; down from the previous maximum of 10 business days.

NOTE: To prevent delays in the appraisal timeline it is important that your real estate professional provide a copy of the executed purchase agreement to your lender immediately and the lender immediately orders the appraisal upon receipt of the purchase agreement.
