The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a benefit program for Veterans to obtain the dream of homeownership under very favorable terms. The VA guarantees up to 25% (or $104,250) of a Florida VA loan for lenders so that Veterans do not need a down payment on a home that is $417,000 or less. Veterans can obtain a VA loan for a home in Florida for up to $1,000,000 but will be required to provide a down payment for a home loan over the Florida FHA loan limits of $417,000.
