What can I use a VA home improvement loan for?


The VA not only allows eligible borrowers to attain homeownership, but also offers a VA home improvement loan program to improve existing residences.

A VA home improvement loan can be used for energy efficient improvements.

Insulation, solar powered systems, advanced energy-saving heating/cooling systems and any other improvement to reduce energy consumption in the long run could be approved by a VA lender. Improvement of plumbing systems, roof replacing and new air-conditioning are also examples of projects to be considered for energy efficient VA home improvement loan.

VA home rehab loans are easy to get.

For home rehabilitation costs less than $3000 you only have to present the lender with the receipt. For bills larger than $3000 and less than $6000, the VA loan applicant may present evidence of utilities bills reduction over time.

Also, eligible applicants may take more than one VA home improvement loan - VA loans may be extended for either energy efficiency improvements, or for general home rehab.

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