A 30-year VA mortgage is a home loan with a 30-year term that can have a down payment as little as 0% depending on the applicant’s qualifications. It is available to eligible service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses.
The VA mortgage approval process works differently than that of a conventional loan. Here’s the general process:
- You must meet the VA’s criteria for eligibility.
- You must meet the credit criteria of a VA-qualified lender, such as U.S.Bank.
- Your property must meet the eligibility requirements of a VA-approved appraiser.
Here are the benefits a VA loan can offer you:
- No down payment: VA loans are zero-down-payment mortgages. However, some borrowers are required to pay an upfront one-time payment called a VA funding fee. The maximum fee is 3.6% of the loan amount, which you can pay at closing or add into your loan amount and monthly payment.
- No private mortgage insurance (PMI): Typically, lenders require PMI on a conventional loan if the down payment is less than 20%. PMI is never required on a VA loan.
- Extra funds for energy-efficient improvements: If you plan to make energy-efficient improvements to your new home, you may be able to borrow up to $5,000 above the cost of your home. These extra funds can be rolled into your loan amount.
Here are the VA loan requirements which were last updated by the VA on July 21, 2017. These requirements are summarized below. For more detailed information, contact one of our experiencedmortgage loan officers.
Service member eligibility requirements
This list of requirements assumes you were honorably discharged. Also, the requirements are less stringent if you were disabled in the line of duty. The VA determines eligibility of military members by issuing a Certificate of Eligibility that proves the borrower meets all requirements.Your mortgage loan officer will work with you on obtaining your Certificate of Eligibility.
- 90 days of active duty during wartime
- 181 days of continuous active duty during peacetime
- Six years of service in the National Guard or Reserves
- Two years of active duty if service began after September 7, 1980 for enlisted service members or October 16, 1981 for officers
- VA loans are available for surviving spouses and dependents of service members who died in the line of duty or as a result of a service-related disability. Surviving spouses lose this eligibility if they remarry.
The VA has a set of criteria a property must meet to qualify for a VA loan. These requirements are summarized below.
- VA loans may only be used for your primary residence.
- The VA requires the seller to make any needed repairs before closing on the loan.
- The property must be safe, structurally sound and sanitary.
Most qualified VA lenders look for credit scores to be 620 or higher. Talk with a U.S.Bank mortgage loan officer to learn more about qualifying for a VA loan.
VA loans are a good option for eligible service members. However, there may be other loan options (FHA, conventional) that are a better choice for what you need. Our mortgage loan officers are dedicated to helping you to determine which loan option is best for you.
