How much is the maximum VA home loan guarantee?


The maximum VA home loan guarantee is 25% of conforming VA home loan amount. The maximum VA lending limit for most states is $417,000 for a single family home - hence, the maximum VA home loan guarantee is $104,250.

The states of HI and AK have higher conforming VA mortgage loan limit of $625,500. That is, the maximum VA home loan guarantee for Hawaii and Alaska is up to $156,375.

How much is the VA home loan guarantee if I take a VA loan exceeding the VA loan limit?

No matter the size of the loan limit, the VA only guarantees up to 25% of the allowed VA loan limit for the area. For loans exceeding the approved VA loan lending limit, lenders may require up to 100% financing of the difference. For jumbo size VA loans, most lenders may require 20-25% borrower financing of the difference between the mortgage amount and the conforming VA loan limit.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
