Designed to offer long-term financing to American veterans, VA mortgage loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and are guaranteed by the U.S. Veterans Administration. The VA determines eligibility and issues a certificate to qualifying applicants to submit to their mortgage lender of choice. It is generally easier to qualify for a VA loan than conventional loans.
Here’s how it works:
100% financing without private mortgage insurance or 20% second mortgage.
A VA funding fee of 0 to 3.3% (this fee may be financed) of the loan amount is paid to the VA.
When purchasing a home, veterans may borrow up to 100% of the sales price or reasonable value of the home, whichever is less.
When refinancing a home, veterans may borrow up to 90% of reasonable value in order to refinance where state law allows.
RHS Loan Programs
The U.S. Department of Agriculture offers a variety of programs to help low to moderate-income individuals living in small towns or rural areas achieve homeownership. The Rural Housing Service (RHS) helps qualifying applicants, who cannot receive credit from other sources, purchase modestly priced homes as their primary residence.
RHS Loans are an attractive option because:
Minimal closing cost
Low or no down payment
RHS loans can be used toward the purchase and renovation of a previously owned home or a new construction. Families must be able to pay their monthly mortgage, homeowner’s insurance and property taxes.
