VA Refinance Questions & Answers

1. What are the guidelines for a VA Refinance?

If the borrower wishes to take cash out of the property, then the maximum financing amount is 90% of the appraised value, depending on the borrowers qualifications. If the borrower does not take cash out then the maximum financing will be 100% of the appraised value of the home or the amount you are refinancing plus closing costs, whichever is lower.

2. Why should I consider refinancing into a VA-insured mortgage?

VA refinance mortgages do not come with prepayment penalties, have no teaser rates nor balloon payments. They are offered at market rate with terms up to 30 years and are fully amortized, meaning that you pay towards principal and interest every month.

3. What if I have a prepayment penalty and other refinancing costs and there isn’t enough equity in my home to refinance?

If you do not have sufficient equity in your home to add your prepayment penalty and/or other refinancing costs into your new VA mortgage, then you should ask your current lender to consider a second mortgage to pay the difference or a short payoff on your existing loan. Offering either of these options is at the discretion of the lender.

4. Does it matter that the value of my home is now less than what I still owe?

Not to VA, but the current mortgage lender considering the refinance would have to be willing to accept a short payoff on the existing loan OR to hold a second mortgage to make up the difference needed to pay off the existing mortgage and the home’s value.

5. I have already obtained one VA loan. Can I get another one?

Yes, your eligibility is reusable depending on the circumstances. Normally, if you have paid off your prior VA loan and disposed of the property, you can have your used eligibility restored for additional use. Also, on a one-time only basis, you may have your eligibility restored if your prior VA loan has been paid in full but you still own the property.

6. Only a portion of my eligibility is available at this time because my prior loan has not been paid in full even though I don’t own the property anymore. Can I still obtain a VA guaranteed home loan?

Yes, depending on the circumstances. If a veteran has already used a portion of his or her eligibility and the used portion cannot yet be restored, any partial remaining eligibility would be available for use. The veteran would have to discuss with a lender whether the remaining balance would be sufficient for the loan amount sought and whether any down payment would be required.

7. Is the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran eligible for the home loan benefit?

The unmarried surviving spouse of a veteran who died on active duty or as the result of a service-connected disability is eligible for the home loan benefit. If you wish to make application for the home loan benefit as a surviving spouse, please contact us.

  31. I have seen that sensible real estate agents all over the place are warming up to FSBO Advertising and marketing. They are acknowledging that it’s more than simply placing a sign in the front yard. It’s really in relation to building human relationships with these dealers who one of these days will become consumers.

    pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other
    than that, this is great blog. An excellent read.

  35. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites
    I stumbleupon every day. It’s always useful to read articles from other authors and use something from other websites. Alfredo

  36. Today, I went to the beach with my children.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  37. Great article and great news that the VA doesn’t offer loans with a balloon payment mortgage. These loans are too risky for most people because if there is any speed bump financially neither the lender or the homeowner ever win. A balloon payment mortgage can be helpful in some scenarios but it’s best to stay away from them and it’s great the VA doesn’t even allow the option.

  38. I am really impressed with your writing abilities
    and also with the structure in your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it your self?
    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing,

    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
