Learn More about VA Loan Eligibility

Because of their honorable and commendable service to the United States, service members and Veterans may qualify for a wide variety of housing benefits. One of the most popular benefits is the VA Loan Program. The VA Loan program is a mortgage option where qualified service people can purchase a home without putting any money down. This program is designed for those brave men and women who served, and there are some requirements that must be met in order to qualify.

Obtaining your Certificate of Eligibility

Silva Lending can assist you in obtaining your VA Certificate of Eligibility. You don’t need your COE to initiate the loan process, but your loan application cannot be completed without it. The COE confirms your length and type of service and determines your eligibility for the VA Loan program. If you are seriously considering a home purchase, fill out a COE form (VA Form-26-1880). If can be downloaded through the Veterans Administration site and sent directly to the VA. Learn more about the COE process at this address: http://benefits.va.gov/benefits/.

VA Loan Income Requirements

One of the great benefits of a VA Loan is that potential homebuyers don’t have to meet a specific income requirement. The only expectation is that borrowers have consistent and reliable income that will meet the needs of the loan as well as their other monthly expenses. To clarify, the VA requires that borrowers have funds left over each month after all expenses are paid. Those funds typically cover food, utilities and anything else due in a month. This requirement is one the primary reasons why VA Loans have the lowest foreclosure rates. It ensures that borrowers have enough to buy the home of their dreams and still live comfortably.

Additional Eligibility Requirements

AThe VA establishes the guidelines of who is eligible for a VA Loan. The Private lenders who finance the home purchase often have an additional set of requirements. Credit, income, and debt are typically items that lenders will evaluate. When you are ready to apply, one of our licensed professionals will obtain your credit score, examine your debt-to-income ratio, and provide our recommendations based on your unique situation. As expected, veterans who have been discharged dishonorably do not qualify for a VA Loan.
