VA Jumbo Purchase Loans - Filling in the gaps that Conventional loan still don't serve in 2011.
This sounds a little backwards from what you may have thought, seen or heard in the past about VA Loans, specifically VA Purchase Loans. VA now allows higher loan amounts up to $1,500,000, and VanDyk Mortgage offers these throughout California and Washington.
Conventional Loans require more equity for Jumbo loan amounts over $417,000 for purchase of a home or condo than typical VA requirements. True Jumbo Conventional Loans require at least 20% down payment to purchase a home, and more if you exceed $1m. The VA Jumbo loan allows Veteran purchasers many options for reduced downpayments vs conventional options.
VA Jumbo rates are typically lower than True Jumbo Rates on 30 year fixed rate loans. Call for an updated quote today - 760-752-4480.

These examples show some of the ways that a VA Jumbo Loan can help, and in ways that many lenders don't offer. VanDyk Mortgage offers VA Jumbo Loans up to $1,500,000 in all areas that we service. Many VA Lenders limit VA Loans to the county limit for your area, or a max of $650K, VanDyk is not contained to these limits. Even in areas with a lower VA Loan Limit, we still offer the VA Loan up to $1,500,000, as long as there is a sufficient combination of entitlement and equity to meet the guideline of 25%.
