About the VA Loan Program

VA Loan Program History

Following World War II, an increase in the number of veterans in the United States prompted Congress to enact a slew of new benefits for war veterans, the most significant of which was the World War II GI Bill, signed into law on June 22, 1944. The VA Loan Program, an outgrowth of the GI Bill, was established to assist more Veterans in achieving the American dream of homeownership. The United States Department of Veteran Affairs insures VA loans, making it less risky for lenders to make loans to those in the military. As a result, veterans with less credit history or lower credit ratings can obtain affordable rates and terms from lenders participating in the Veteran Affairs (VA) loan program.

What to Expect

VA loans are designed specifically for veterans.

  • Easier Credit Qualification: While minimum credit scores vary depending on the loan, borrowers typically need a credit score of 640 or higher to get the best rates.
  • No PMI Required: Unlike FHA and conventional loans with less than 20% down, VA loans do not require PMI.
  • Expanded Eligibility: Most members of the military, veterans, reservists and National Guard members are eligible to apply.
  • Reduced Timeframe: Active members qualify after six months of service.

I’ve worked with Jay Hurst on several loans for my homes over the years, for purchases and refinancing - and just completed one that was a long time planning. Jay is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and was able to help advise me thru a lot of the nuance the options for my recent purchase, and provide a lot of clarity for me.Great guy to have on your side, and great rates!.

Hurst Lending was very easy to work with and stayed in constant contact with me throughout the loan process so I never had to wonder what the status of the loan was.

Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies a loan as jumbo?

A jumbo loan is a type of home loan that is used to finance homes that are too expensive for conventional financing. In most counties, the current conventional loan limit is $715,00 as of 2023. Homes priced above the conventional limit necessitate a jumbo loan. A split loan could be another option for a higher-priced home. A split loan is a conventional loan originated at the maximum conventional limit combined with a second loan to cover the balance of the loan. This is an excellent way to obtain a lower-interest conventional loan while avoiding a higher-interest jumbo loan.

Is it harder to qualify for a jumbo loan?

Jumbo loans are larger than conventional loans, and investors keep track of them. Jumbo loan investors underwrite more stringently, often requiring slightly higher credit scores than conventional loan investors. That being said, jumbo loans are not difficult to obtain, and we offer a variety of jumbo loan options to assist our customers.

Do you have to put 20% down on a jumbo?

No. Many lenders require buyers to put down at least 20%, but Hurst Lending allows borrowers to put down as little as 5% when using a split-loan to obtain a jumbo loan.

Are interest rates higher on jumbo loans?

It is determined by the market cycle. Jumbo loan rates are frequently higher than conventional loan rates, but there are times when a Jumbo loan will be the same or even slightly lower. We will locate the best option for you, whether it is a jumbo loan or a split jumbo loan (which is a conventional loan at the jumbo loan limit and a 2nd loan to cover the rest of your loan needs). We will create several scenarios to help you decide which option is best for you!

What are the downsides of a jumbo loan?

A jumbo loan may be more difficult to obtain, and the interest rate may be slightly higher than on a conventional loan. Jumbo loans typically necessitate slightly higher credit scores and a little more in reserves. That being said, we have very competitive jumbo loan offers and can assist nearly anyone who would qualify for a conventional loan.

What’s the difference between a jumbo loan and conventional loan?

A jumbo loan is simply a home loan that exceeds Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s maximum conventional loan limit. Because they do not “fit” within the dollar limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, these loans

Can you put 5% down on a jumbo?

Yes. For a Jumbo Loan, most lenders require a minimum 20% down payment. We are unique. Hurst Lending offers jumbo mortgages with as little as 5% down when combined with a conventional loan and a second lien.

What credit score is required to qualify for a Jumbo Loan?

A buyer’s credit score must be slightly higher than that required for smaller conventional loans. For a Jumbo loan, most lenders require at least a 700 credit score, whereas conventional loans allow slightly lower credit scores.
