VA FAQ #4 - What is the VA Loan Limit?
The Veterans Administration does not actually have a Loan Limit or maximum loan amount for VA Loans. However there are VA County Loan Limits which are the maximum Loan Amounts available for 100% VA financing in that respective county.
Most US counties are at the $424,100 nationwide VA Loan Limit, however certain High Cost counties are allowed much higher VA Loan Limits, we will address these in subsequent FAQs on VA Loan Limits for Higher Cost Counties and Exceeding the VA Loan Limit. VA Loans over $424K are called VA Jumbo, VA High Balance, or VA Super Conforming Loans. We offer all of the above.
VA Lenders such as VanDyk Mortgage utilize the County VA Loan Limits to calculate your VA Loan Entitlement amount, which will determine your maximum VA Loan with zero down payment required. In cases where the VA Loan or Purchase price exceed the county VA Loan Limit, we are able to utilize a partial downpayment for purchases to reach the required VA Guarantee amount, or in a Refinance, we can utilize available equity in the home to reach that guarantee amount. Not all Lenders offer this feature, be sure to ask upfront.
