You may have heard:
"I have already used my VA benefit once; I cannot use it again"
"I cannot have multiple VA Loans"
"I cannot use my spouse's income to help qualify"
"There is always a funding fee"
These are all myths, none of the above are true!
One of the most asked questions we get is "What credit score do I need for a VA Home Loan Benefit?"
The VA does not have any credit requirements because they do not lend the money, the lender does!
Lenders set the requirements.
The VA home loan remains one of the only lending programs on the market that offers a *zero down payment mortgage. Most lending programs require at least some form of down payment, with popular amounts ranging from *3.5% to 20%. So, if you’re purchasing a $200,000 home, that could mean coming up with at least $7,000 and as much as $40,000. Borrowers using the VA loan can purchase immediately with no money down, avoiding years of saving up and paying rent to someone else.
VA loans do not require mortgage insurance, even when the home buyer is putting no money down. As a result, the buyer not only saves cash up front but can also save thousands over the lifetime of the loan and give the buyer more purchasing power when shopping for a home.
The VA home loan has very flexible underwriting guidelines compared to conventional mortgage and other types of home loan financing. Credit scores can go as low as 40 points lower than conventional loans, and underwriters can approve the loan based on makes-sense financing.
VA loans also allow for a higher debt-to-income ratio than other types of mortgages. Because of this, borrowers qualify for tens of thousands more in purchase price than if they used conventional financing in some markets.
