What is a VA Loan?

The VA loan is a mortgage program for veterans of the U.S. military. Structurally, a VA loan resembles most other loan type — as a homeowner, you borrow some amount from the bank, then make monthly payments until the borrowed amount is paid-in-full.

However, the VA loan bears distinct advantages over its conventional and FHA mortgage cousins.

The first advantage of VA loans is that they require no money down on a purchase. Home buyers using a VA loan can finance up to 100% of a home’s purchase price so long as the loan size is within the VA loan limits for the given area.

VA loan limits are typically $417,000 but may range up to $729,750 in “high-cost” areas such as northern Virginia and Potomac, Maryland.
