Florida VA Home Loan Requirements

To qualify for a VA home loan, you must fulfill certain criteria. If you’re not sure whether or not you’ll be approved, contact a mortgage lender or a VA Loan Specialist. Completing a Certificate of Eligibility is one of the first steps toward obtaining a VA Loan.

VA Home Loans provide a great opportunity for active duty or veterans to buy a home like this couple posing in front of their new house with an American flag.

If you fall into one of these categories, you may qualify for a VA Loan in Florida.

  • Veterans discharged from Active-duty during WWII or later. With proof of discharge without the status of “dishonorable”
  • Veterans with at least 90 consecutive days of service during major conflict during Active-duty
  • Peacetime Veterans and active-duty personnel with at least 180 days of consecutive service
  • Enlisted Veterans whose service began after 1980, or officers whose service began after 1981, and who have served at least 2 years.
  • Selected Reserve Component and National Guard members may also qualify.

A qualified VA Loan Specialist can answer any questions and provide you with clarification on your eligibility.

Why Would I Want A VA Loan in Florida?

VA home loans may be preferable to standard loans for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, if you qualify, a VA Loan has the potential of qualifying even if you did not qualify for other conventional loans. Depending on the lender, there may be no down payment required for a VA Loan. VA Loans often have lower interest rates than conventional loans, and many times interest rates can be negotiated with the lender. Assumable mortgages are permitted, and there are no mortgage insurance premiums on VA Loans. In comparison to other forms of financing your closing costs may be lower, and there is no penalty for prepaying your mortgage. In addition, VA assistance due to temporary financial difficulty is available to those who qualify.
