A VA loan is a mortgage that is partially guaranteed by the department of Veterans Affairs. It is originated by any VA-approved Lenders and is used to assist service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses to become homeowners. The Underwriting requirements and mortgage terms are set by the VA. Similar to FHA loans, the government backing allows for lower credit scores as low as 580. Similar to FHA, pricing is risk-based but only based on credit score, whereas conventional pricing includes your loan-to-value ratio (LTV). The two other big draws for VA loans is the ability for 100% financing (no down payment) and no mortgage insurance (included on all FHA loans and most conventional loans above 80% LTV). If you are eligible for a VA loan (determined by your length and character of service and duty status) then this is most likely your best option.

Your APR will vary based on your final loan amount and finance charges.
The APR on all ARM products does not include potential payment changes that will occur once the initial fixed period is over.
The APR, monthly payments, and credits and fees for the VA products do not include the required VA Funding Fee. The VA Funding Fee can range from .5% to 3.6% of your loan amount depending on several factors including but not limited to down payment amount, first time or subsequent use of a VA loan, and transaction type. The addition of the VA Funding Fee on VA loans could increase the monthly payments, fees, and APR.
These rate quotes are not a commitment to lend. Any loan is subject to credit approval.
Payment amounts include principal and interest only and do not include homeowner's insurance, flood insurance (if applicable), mortgage insurance (if applicable) or property taxes that must be paid in addition to your loan payment.
Fees or credits shown are a combination of charges and points from the lender for the cost of originating the loan. These fees are commonly labeled as Origination, Application, Processing, Underwriting, or Administration fees on the Loan Estimate. These fees do not include all costs associated with originating your mortgage. Please visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's website for more information on common costs associated with taking out a mortgage loan.
The APR, monthly payments, and credits and fees for the FHA products do not include the required upfront mortgage insurance premium and the required annual mortgage insurance premium (collectively known as MIP). The upfront MIP is 1.75% of your loan amount and the annual MIP will vary in amount and duration depending on several factors including but not limited to loan amount, value and loan term. The addition of MIP on FHA loans could increase the monthly payments, fees, and APR.
