Not convinced that a Veterans Administration loan is right for you?
VA loans require a non-refundable VA funding fee at closing. The fee is higher with a zero down payment. Maximum loan amounts vary by county.
For comparison purposes, a 15-year VA fixed rate mortgage of $204,300 with a 0% down payment at an APR of 4.613% with 0.125 discount points and an $985 origination fee with a credit score of 740 would result in 180 equal payments of $1524.01. This payment does not include tax or insurance costs—the total payment obligation may be higher. This is a representative example based upon rates that were effective as of 12/17/18. Rates and programs may change at any time.
