VA Jumbo Loans requirements

It’s possible that a home you’re looking for is beyond the highest loan maximum as determined by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If you’re home will require financing above the maximum limitation, Mutual of Omaha Mortgage may qualify you for a jumbo loan with your VA home loan benefits. But like our conventional jumbo loans package, there are some restrictions for you to qualify.

VA Jumbo Loan limits

Conventional jumbo loan applicants must meet certain income, employment and credit history requirements in order to qualify for a mortgage. VA jumbo loan applicants will be held to higher standards that conventional VA mortgage applicants. Strict lending requirements ensure your financial goals are satisfied while not compromising on the affordability to your budget. Call a VA Loan Specialist at Mutual of Omaha Mortgage to learn more about what requirements are necessary for a VA jumbo loan.


Jumbo Loans vs. Conventional Loans

If you’re going for a home that far exceeds the loan maximum – $484,350 and $726,525 on a per-county-basis for 1 unit properties – then ask a Banker for a jumbo loan application. If, however, you plan to buy a conventional fixed-rate or VA loan, and your total down payment does not reduce the principle finance amount below the loan limit, then your loan will automatically become a jumbo mortgage. Either way, homes with higher real estate value are covered by Mutual of Omaha Mortgage!

Regulations and Fees

While the VA Loan is a federal program, the government generally does not make direct loans to veterans. Private lenders, including Mutual of Omaha Mortgage, finance the loan while the Department of Veterans Affairs offers a guaranty. This guaranty provides incentive for private lenders to offer loans with better terms.

Loan Limits
In most parts of the country, veterans who qualify for the VA Loan can purchase a home worth up to $510,400 without putting any money down: borrowers in high-cost counties may be able to purchase homes far exceeding that amount without a down payment. With a required minimum down payment, Mutual of Omaha will authorize VA loans above county limits in excess of $1.5 million.
