2016 VA Loan Limits

The 2016 VA Loan limits have been released.  The VA loan program does not have a maximum amount a veteran can borrow using a VA loan.  For 2016, the ZERO down payment limit will remain at $417,000 for most counties.  VA Loan borrowers CAN exceed this limit by putting down 25% of any amount above 417k.  For example, one would have to put down 25k on a 517k purchase.  For borrowers in “high cost” counties, some limits have changed for 2016.  San Diego for example has increased from $562,350 to $580,750.  The Chapman Lending Team at HomeBridge covers every county in California and Arizona.  HomeBridge Financial lends in all 50 states.  We are VA Loan experts and help hundreds of veterans each year.
