2009 VA refinance rules help Veterans & Active Duty Service members out of ARM loans

New VA rules for 2009 have created better Refinance options for US Vets & Active Duty Service Members.   The new VA rules allow Vets & Active Duty Service Members to refinance their non VA home loans into safe, secure VA Fixed Rate Home Loans up to 100% of their homes appraised value.   This new program can help thousands of USA Vets & Active Duty Service Members to save their homes, protect their financial future, and start building wealth for the future. 

If you need to Refinance your Non-VA home loan, the new VA Refinance offers you the best option for affordability, and it is very reasonable to qualify.    The former limit for this type of transaction was 90% of the home's value and $144,000.   It is now 100% of your home's value and the loan limits go as high as $1,094,625 in some counties.  To find out the VA loan limit for your county, click here.  

Our VA Home Loans are safe 30 year fixed rate loans with no Mortgage Insurance.  VA Funding Fees may apply, ask us to calculate yours.   We can also request your Certificate of Eligibility quickly online direct from VA for you.
