VA JUMBO LOANS: HOW TO BUY MORE WITH YOUR VA LOAN

VA Jumbo Loans

With soaring housing prices, the median price of homes has risen significantly, often exceeding $647,200, the 2022 VA limit in Texas. If a potential home buyer is unable to find a suitable property within the limit prescribed, a VA Jumbo loan may be obtained. As implied, these are loans for larger amounts, and as such, a down payment is required. With a credit score not exceeding 550, financing for a VA Jumbo loan may be approved.

How much can I afford with VA?

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs works with our veterans to assist them in purchasing a home that may exceed $647,200, the maximum price allowed for a VA loan in Texas. A loan that goes over the maximum amount may be offered when the home buyer makes a down payment of 25% of the excess in price. For example, a home that costs $747,200, which is $100,000 over the limit, would necessitate a down payment of $25,000 (25% of the excess price). This qualifies as a VA Jumbo loan. For a home worth $747,200, a down payment of $25,000 is still a good deal compared to purchasing the same home through a conventional loan.
