Florida Veterans and Active Duty service members receive some outstanding home purchasing benefits from the VA Home Loan Program to buy or refinance a personal home. Surviving spouses of service members who died in service or as a result of service-connected injuries may also be eligible for a VA Home Loan.
A VA Mortgage is a government backed loan that rewards our veterans for their service by offering a loan with no down payment requirement, aggressively competitive interest rates and with minimal qualification requirements when compared to other loans such as conventional mortgages or FHA mortgages.
In addition to 100% financing of a home purchase, VA Home Loans do not have private mortgage insurance (PMI). Most VA loans are 30 year fixed rate loans at interest rates typically more favorable than conventional 20% down loan programs.
There are a few key things to know about VA loan eligibility in Florida. First, you must have served in the military for a certain amount of time. Second, you will need a VA Loan Certificate of Eligibility (COE).
In addition, the income requirements for borrowers seeking a VA Loan are typically evaluated using a residual income formula, which helps the lender determine if the Veteran has enough income to afford both their normal living expenses as well as the additional costs of the mortgage, interest, tax and insurance payments.
