If you’re a veteran or current service member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you could qualify for a VA loan – but what are the benefits when you’re buying a condo or loft in DTLA?
VA Loan Benefits When You Buy a Loft or Condo in DTLA
VA loans come with several benefits attached, and if you qualify for them, you could enjoy:
- No down payment (100% financing)
- No PMI
- No prepayment penalty
- Limited closing costs
Down Payments on VA Loans
When you take out a VA loan, you can get 100 percent financing. That means you don’t have to come up with a down payment at all – the VA will vouch for you with a lender, saying you’re good for it. The more you put down, though, the lower your monthly mortgage payments will be.
No Private Mortgage Insurance on VA Loans
Even if you put nothing down, you don’t have to pay for private mortgage insurance with a VA loan. The VA will vouch for you on this front, too, and your lender can go to the VA if you have trouble making your payments.
No Prepayment Penalties
You can pay off a VA loan early with no penalties, which is not the case with most other loans.
Limited Closing Costs
The VA limits the amount that a lender can charge you in closing costs. As a result, using your VA loan typically means you’re paying less in closing costs than you would with another type of loan.
