What Qualifies You for a VA Loan?

If you're interested in a VA loan, you probably have good reason to believe you may qualify because you're currently serving, or you have served in the military in the past. However, there are specific requirements to be met. To qualify for a VA loan in California you must meet one of the following criteria:

What Are VA Loan Benefits?

VA loans afford California veterans and active duty military members many benefits. The most notable is the 100% financing option that may be available. That means that qualified veterans, active duty service members, reservists, and spouses may not need a down payment to purchase a home in California with a VA loan. In addition, VA loans often limit the amount of closing costs for buyers, and there are no prepayment penalties for paying off your loan early. VA loans often have some of the best interest rates available in SoCal, and they do not require private mortgage insurance.

What is the VA Loan Limit in California?

The total amount you may borrow is known as the VA loan limit. The maximum amount depends on the geographic region where you are buying a home, or where your home is located if you're doing a refinance. Current VA loan limits for various counties in Southern California are as follows:

Los Angeles County:$679,650.00
Orange County:$679,650.00
Riverside County:$453,100.00
San Bernardino County:$453,100.00
