VA FAQ #5 - What is a VA Jumbo Loan?
A VA Jumbo Loan is any VA Loan that exceeds $424,100 for the Loan Amount. Many counties have a VA Loan Limit of $424K, which is the base VA Loan Limit Nationwide. VA Jumbo Loans come into play in a couple of different instances.
VA Jumbo scenario 1. Exceeding VA Loan Limits in Counties with a $424,100VA Loan Limit. If you live in a county with a $424,100 VA Loan Limit, you can actually get a higher VA Loan amount than $424K with Vandyk Mortgage. The loan will require some additional downpayment or equity to ensure that we are able to reach the mandatory VA Guarantee requirements. This amount is typically 25% of the amount over the VA County Loan Limit. So a $524K home would require $25K down.
VA Jumbo scenario 2: High Cost VA Loan Limit Counties with zero down VA Jumbo Loans. The VA has identified certain Higher Cost Counties in areas such as California, Washington State, Virginia, and a few others that allow for higher VA Loan Limits. 2017 VA Loan limits allow zero down VA Jumbo purchase loans up to $636,150 in San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Marin and Contra Costa counties. Los Angeles and Orange County Vets can purchase a home with a VA Jumbo Loan up to $636,150 with zero down payment required.
VA Jumbo scenario 3: VA Jumbo Purchase - exceeding the Loan Limit in High Cost counties. VanDyk Mortgage allows you to qualify for a higher VA Loan amount over and above your County VA Loan Limit. The loan will require some additional down payment to ensure that we are able to reach the mandatory Guarantee requirements. This amount is typically 25% of the amount over the VA County Loan Limit. For instance, a $1,036,150 home purchase utilizing a VA Jumbo Loan in Los Angeles would require $100k down, (9.65%).
VA Jumbo scenario 4: VA Jumbo Refinance - exceeding the Loan Limit. VanDyk Mortgage allows you to qualify for a higher VA Loan amount over and above your County VA Loan Limit. This VA Jumbo Loan will require some equity to ensure that we are able to reach the mandatory Guarantee requirements. This amount is typically 25% of the amount over the VA County Loan Limit for a VA Jumbo refinance. For instance, If your home is worth $1.036M, and you live in Los Angeles or Orange County, CA, you could refinance a $900K non-VA Loan into a VA Jumbo Loan, as you would have enough equity to cover the VA Guarantee Requirements for a VA Jumbo Refinance in Los Angeles.

It is important to note that VanDyk offers VA Jumbo, VA High Balance and VA Super Conforming Loans up to $1.5M Loan amounts, we are not limited to the Max VA Loan Amounts that many other VA Lenders have, many limit their VA Loans to $417K, $650K, $729,750, $1,000,000, or $1,094,625. There are many reasons that they are limited to these figures, but what is important is that we offer and fund VA Loans that exceed each of these thresholds - $417K, $650K, $729,750, $1,000,000, and $1,094,625.
