  • Copy of DD214

Competitive interest rates

VA loans are backed by the federal government and this means they provide lenders safety and flexibility.  What this means for you is a lower mortgage rate than you might receive with another type of loan.  

No money down

While conventional loans generally require 20% down payments, no such thing is required with a VA home loan under the local conforming limit. Down payments are still of course and option but they are not a requirement as you can finance up to 100% of your loan. The VA does allow for jumbo loans, but do require you to pay 25% of the difference between the loan amount and the loan limit which as of March, 2024 is $766,500.

About VA Loans - 2024 Guidelines

VA home loans in Florida are fully backed by the government and offer a myriad of advantages for your home purchase or mortgage refinance. Here are the six biggest advantages of VA home mortgages in Florida:


Conventional loans with less than 20% down require PMI but with a VA loan you do not have to pay mortgage insurance. 

Easier to Qualify

Just like with the lower rates, VA loans are backed by the US government which means that lenders (banks) assume much less risk, which translates to less stringent qualification standards. 

Fewer credit restrictions

Easier to qualify means fewer restrictions. With a Florida VA Loan, you’re allowed a higher debt-to-income ratio and lower credit scores are OK 

Seller assistance

With VA loans the sellers can pay up to 4% of closing costs. 

Easy refinance

VA streamline or cash-out financing is available for VA loans. Streamlined refinancing lowers the rate of an already existing loan which makes refinancing simple and painless.  This means you can always take advantage of lower rates when interest rates drop. Note that the cash-out option does require a credit check and appraisal.
