Are you looking for a VA guaranteed loan? You may be interested in knowing the maximum amount you are entitled to borrow. Many borrowers are shocked to learn there is no fixed VA loan maximum. Although, the VA’s guaranty only extends up to a specific amount.
According to the VA guidelines there is no maximum amount you can borrow with a VA loan. Eligible borrowers with full VA entitlement can buy as much as they qualify for and approved for in underwriting. A down payment is necessary in cases where you don’t qualify for 0 down. You might not qualify for 0 down if your trying to buy a house that doesn’t appraise for the purchase price and you want the home so much that you decide to make up the difference.
Full VA entitlement occurs when you’re using your VA loan benefit for the first time and if you pay off your current va loan before buying again. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) guidelines restrict VA buyers without full VA entitlement to follow the VA loan limits that you’ll find below.
VA loan limits aren’t a max on what you can borrow. You can still borrow as much as a lender deems affordable. VA loan limits are a max on what you can buy without a down payment and not a max on what you can borrow.
The current maximum guarantee authorized by the VA in most parts of the country is $726,200. VA loan limits increase based on the area. In certain high-cost counties, VA loan limits can exceed $1,089,300.
