VA LOans

VA loans are backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and are available to eligible active-duty service members, veterans and surviving spouses of veterans who passed as a result of a service-related injury. An eligible VA borrower may use their VA home loan benefit more than once to buy or refinance their primary residence.

Income

There are minimum income requirements set to be able to qualify for these loans. The VA does not set maximum income limits. Income must be verified as full-time and a two year employment history is preferred. Most other income sources such as income from interest, dividends, disability, retirement or pensions are usually accepted after they are properly reviewed.

Credit Score

The VA doesn’t set a minimum credit score requirement for the VA loan, but lenders will typically have a credit score benchmark. VA loans have more flexible loan terms, and a low credit score doesn't necessarily disqualify a borrow from this program.

COST

Va loans do not require a down payment or Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). A one-time funding fee is paid to the VA, but this fee is usually financed within the loan itself. RHB does not charge processing or origination fees on any VA loan. So eligible borrowers have no out-of-pocket costs when you finance through RiverHills Bank.
