Down Payments

VA Loans allow borrowers to buy a home with no down payment. The maximum loan amount is upwards of 103.3 percent of the value of the property. In addition, credits of up to $6,000 are available for adding energy efficient features to your current home.


Private mortgage insurance

Private mortgage insurance (PMI) is required on all loans that exceed 80 percent of the value of the home. However, VA loan programs do not require PMI which can save hundreds of dollars per month. Because the VA is backing a Bonita Springs VA mortgage, you won’t have to worry about paying this extra fee, regardless of the loan to value of your home.  Remember, in some, the lender might insist on the funding fee depending on your eligibility but it may be included in the loan to value.

Funding Fees

Unlike other loans, the VA does require a funding fee  but can be waived under certain circumstances. Example would be the veteran is receiving VA disability payments. Funding fees vary from 1.5 percent to 3.3 percent depending on numerous factors including service classification and whether or not you have had a VA loan in the past. First time use purchase funding fee is 2.15% which can be financed into the loan amount unless paid upfront.

  • Pay stubs – VA lenders will require copies of your two most recent pay stubs
  • W-2 forms/taxes – You will be required to provide copies of your last two tax returns whether you are employed by a traditional employer or are self employed
