Things to Know about VA Loans

More about VA Loans

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:

No money down

While conventional loans generally require down payments that can reach up to 20%, no such thing is required with a VA home loan at or under the local conforming limit. Down payments are still an option, of course, but they are not a requirement. The VA allows you to purchase jumbo loans, but requires you to supply 25% of the difference between the loan amount and the loan limit.


Private Mortgage Insurance (or PMI) is a requirement when you put less than 20% down on the purchase of a home and typically adds 0.2-0.9% of expenses to your monthly mortgage. With a VA loan, you can say goodbye to PMI!

Competitive interest rates

Since VA loans are guaranteed by the federal government this can provide lenders with a greater sense of safety and flexibility. With a VA mortgage in Florida, we can provide more competitive interest rate than you may otherwise receive.

Easier to Qualify

Similarly to the interest rates, the VA loan being backed by the government also lets the banks assume far less of the risk. This can lead to less stringent qualification standards, once the aforementioned VA loan qualifications are met.

Fewer credit restrictions

Reduced restrictions mean easier qualification. With a VA loan, you’re allowed a higher debt-to-income ratio and afforded more leniency with your credit score.

Seller assistance

The VA allows sellers to assist with up to 4% of closing costs.

Easy refinance

Borrowers can refinance their homes with a VA streamline or cash-out loan. The streamlined version lowers the mortgage rate of an already existing VA loan, usually for less than the current principal and interest. This means it doesn’t require a credit check or appraisal. The cash-out option involves a credit check and appraisal, since the home’s value represents the maximum loan amount and the new loan will be larger than the existing loan.
