Florida VA Loans

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.

In order to qualify for a VA loan in Florida, you must meet the eligibility requirements set by the VA. First you must obtain a VA Certificate of Eligibility. As VA mortgage lenders in Florida, we can help you determine if you meet the eligibility guidelines for a VA loan in Florida and help you get your COE. The basic guidelines are:

  • You must be a United States Veteran, Active Duty Servicemember, Reserves Member, National Guard Member or Surviving Spouse

There are a few other guidelines required to get your Certificate of Eligibility for a VA loan, but those are the most basic.

VA Loan Qualifications in Florida

The VA is not a lender, so you will still have to meet income-to-debt ratio, credit and proof of the ability to repay the loan before you can qualify for a VA loan in Florida. The home purchase must be appraised by a VA appraiser and you must have funds for the VA funding fee.
