There are times in life when taking on large home loans makes sense. Whether buying a new home or renovating an old primary residence, the home value you generate from your home is worth every penny.
Thanks to your service in the U.S. Armed Forces, you may qualify for additional assistance when applying for home loan programs. VA loans exist to help eligible veterans and service members get home financing in areas with no private financing and purchase property with no down payment.
Applying for a VA home loan is a complex and lengthy process. If you aren’t sure what size of loan you can qualify for and monthly mortgage payment, using a VA loan calculator can give you realistic expectations going into the process.
Our VA Loan Calculator gives you your typical monthly payments through the duration of the loan. It also shows how much interest you can expect to pay and full monthly and yearly amortization schedules. Hence you get to estimate your monthly payment on a loan amount and the interest rate before applying for such a loan. The attached graph gives you a visual representation of your loan’s expected progress.
Our VA loan calculator takes your data and applies mathematical equations commonly used by financial institutions all over the United States. While this will give you a fair estimate of how much you’ll pay and the rate you’ll gain equity, other factors may change the results.
Factors such as VA eligibility, VA funding fee, loan type, property tax rates in your community, mortgage insurance, the loan term, and interest rates can all affect the final results. To get a specific quote, it’s helpful to speak with a VA-approved lender who can provide you with more detailed information about your state and county.

The base loan amount requested is $688,500 (obviously, this can go up or down depending on the veteran’s wishes).
