How Is The VA Home Loan Interest Rate Calculated?

Each lender and bank will set their own rate. Because of this, it is important to check the VA home loan rates offered by all banks and lenders. Your lender will usually only quote you one rate. There may be a lower rate available.

Are VA home Loan Rates Regulated By The United States Department of Veteran Affairs?

No. Each lender is allowed to set their own rate.

What is APR?

APR stands for annual percentage rate. APR is not the interest rate. APR however is calculated on the interest rate less the pre-paid costs of the loan. APR is an indicator of how much the buyers closing costs are (regardless if these are paid for by the seller, with a grant or through a lender credit). Lender credit may not exceed 2% of the loan amount.

Is The VA Home Loan Interest Rate Based On Credit Score?

Not exactly. The VA home loan interest rate is not based on credit alone. Different lenders may offer incentives to borrowers with excellent credit or penalties if the borrowers credit is below the Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac guidelines. If your credit score is below 620, you may have to pay a higher interest rate. However, if your credit score is between 620-850, you will be able to get the same rate.

How Does The VA Home Loan Rate Compare With Conventional Interest Rates?

The VA home loan interest rate is usually equal to or lower than the interest rate for a conventional mortgage.

When Is The Best Time To Lock In The Interest Rate?

The best time to lock in your interest rate is once you have chosen a property and know when you will be able to close.

What Are Points?

Points are also known as discount points. A point is 1% of the loan amount. Points can be used to buy down the interest rate. Points are not the same thing as the VA Funding Fee.

Taking Over a Seller’s Loan

Homeowners with a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration or the Department of Veterans Affairs should consider using their loan terms as a marketing tool when it comes time to sell.
Mortgage loans from both government agencies include a little-known feature known as assumability. In other words, the buyer of a home financed with an existing F.H.A. or V.A. loan may be able to take over, or assume, the seller’s loan, under the same terms, rather than take out a new mortgage.
During periods when interest rates are rising, homes offered for sale with an assumable, lower-rate mortgage may have extra appeal for certain buyers
