While there are numerous unique benefits to the VA loan program, the most notable is that no down payment is required.

What are VA Home Loan Benefits?
  • Loan can be assumed by a buyer who obtains credit approval.
  • VA loan rates are comparable to FHA loan rates and often lower than Conventional interest rates.
  • No mortgage insurance, so your payment is lower than buying with a Conventional or FHA loan.
  • VA places limitations on the types of fees the lender can charge you (these non-allowable costs are typically paid by the seller).
  • The seller can pay 100% of your Discount Points and other non-recurring costs (one-time loan and closing costs).
  • Seller can contribute up to 4% of the sales prices towards your pre-paid expenses (property taxes, home owners insurance and pro-rated interest), the VA Funding Fee and/or pay off debts you have to help you qualify.
  • No pre-payment penalties allowed.
  • 30 and 15 year fixed rate loans offered, as well as 3/1 and 5/1 ARMs.
  • Payment relief, which is also known as forbearance, is extended to VA homeowners experiencing temporary financial difficulty.


Whether you have used the VA home loan before or this is your first time, getting started can seem like a daunting task. The good news is that there is an abundance of information available to home buyers these days. If you're a veteran and you're starting the process of looking into a home loan you'll want to pay special attention to the advantages that the VA home loan program can offer you.

About Purchasing The VA Loan



For VA housing loan purposes, the term "veteran" includes certain members of the Selected Reserve, active duty service personnel and certain categories of spouses. To purchase a Omaha home with a VA Loan, the program guidelines require:
  • You must be an eligible veteran who has available home loan entitlement.
  • The loan must be for an eligible purpose. The purchase price should not exceed the appraised value. Otherwise, you will have to pay the difference from your own resources.
  • You must occupy or intend to occupy the property as your home within a reasonable period of time after closing the loan.
  • You must have enough income to meet the new mortgage payments on the loan, cover the costs of owning a home, take care of other obligations and expenses, and still have enough income left over for family support (a spouses income is considered in the same manner as the veterans).


There are two very important pieces of information you will need in order to purchase a VA home loan:

1. Purchase Entitlement Amount
This tells the lender that you are eligible for the program.

2. VA Certificate of Eligibility For Purchasing
This is the amount of the loan of which VA will guarantee, and it determines whether you need to make a down payment or not.

There is usually no VA Loan down payment required, unless



1.The loan amount exceeds the Conforming Loan Limit of $417,000, or the limit is applicable to the high cost areas found here.
2. Borrower does not have full VA entitlement.
3. Appraised value is less than the purchase price, but then it is negotiable with the seller.

It is important to note that the VA cannot guarantee that you are making a good investment or that you can resell the property at the price you paid. The VA does not have the authority to provide you with legal service either. Keep in mind that VA Home Loans can help you order your certificate of Eligibility as well, so feel free to call us at (816) 945-9924 with any questions or to speed up the veteranís mortgage process.
