Kentucky VA Mortgage Lender Guide

 

 

1. WHAT KIND OF CREDIT SCORE DO YOU NEED TO GET APPROVED FOR A VA MORTGAGE LOAN IN KENTUCKY?

Most VA mortgage lenders in Kentucky are looking for at least a 620 credit score for a VA loan approval.  However, VA in their official published guidelines for credit scores says they don’t have a minimum credit.  What happens with VA Lenders they will create credit overlays to push out lower credit score borrowers because if they do too many VA loans that default, then they run the risk of getting shut out from VA from them insuring their loans.

FICO credit scores range from 300 to 850. Most borrowers are in the 600 to 700 ranges with very few in the 300 to 400 range and few limited 800 scores.

It pays to shop around with different VA lenders in Kentucky to see what their minimum credit score requirements are.

2. Who is eligible for a VA Mortgage loan in Kentucky?

Kentucky Veterans, active duty servicemembers, reservists, National Guard members, surviving spouses, and other individuals can earn eligibility for home loan benefits. You may qualify if you are:

  • Military veteran
  • Active duty servicemember
  • Reservist or National Guard member
  • Surviving spouse who did not remarry
  • Academy cadet or midshipman
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) officer
  • Public Health Service (PHS) Officer

In order to obtain a Kentucky VA loan, you’ll need a Certificate of Eligibility, which you can apply for online or we can get for you with your info. Usually comes back instantly, no waiting around like it use to be for it to come in the mail.

3. Can you get a Kentucky VA Mortgage loan more than once?

If you are deemed eligible for a Kentucky VA loan, the benefit is yours for life, and in some cases, it can be used multiple times at once. Many veterans use it repeatedly for their home financing needs. Use it for a starter home, then use it again when you’re ready for more space. THEN you can use it again to refinance your loan for a lower rate or get cash out of your home’s equity. It’s completely up to you.

When you use your VA COE again to buy another home, there is an increase in the funding fee from 2.15% to 3.3% for regular veteran and active duty if not on VA disability have a waiver of the VA funding fee.

You can have two active VA loans out at the same time. Call or email me and I can explain to you. Very detailed and complex but can be done if meets the test for VA guidelines for having two VA loans at once. 

KENTUCKY VETERANS ARE GUARANTEED VA MORTGAGE LOAN

 No one is guaranteed a loan. Even veterans with VA entitlement.

The word “guaranty” comes up a lot when talking about Kentucky VA loans. Well, I’m here to tell you that a “guaranty” and a “guarantee” are not the same thing. Many people assume when they see “VA loan guaranty” that they’re guaranteed a VA loan, and that’s simply not the case.
The VA loan guaranty refers to the amount of each VA loan that is backed by the government (usually 25%). If the loan defaults, the amount under guaranty is refunded to the lender by the government. So just because you see guaranty, doesn’t mean your loan is guaranteed to be approved.

HOW LONG DOES  VA APPRAISAL PROCESS?

Fact: The VA appraisal process can be rough if you’re pursuing a home that’s in rough shape. Otherwise, the VA appraisal process isn’t much different from the average Conventional appraisal.

VA loan appraisers use the VA’s “Minimum Property Requirement” guidelines to determine if a home is safe, structurally sound, and sanitary. If the home doesn’t meet their standards, the process can take a while. That’s why it’s important to choose your home wisely. A few of the MPRs include:

  • Plumbing and electrical systems must be safe and in good condition
  • Heating must be adequate
  • Roofing must be adequate
  • No leaks, excessive dampness, defective construction, or decay
  • No termites, destructive insects, fungus growth, or dry rot

Kentucky VA loans aren’t designed to fund fixer-uppers. The VA wants veterans and servicemembers to buy solid, move-in ready homes, not projects.  Also, since most VA borrowers are putting no money down, they don’t want to take the risk of borrower walking away with no equity in the home.

Kentucky VA Loan Limits for 2019

VA does not set a cap on how much you can borrow to finance your home. However, there are limits on the amount of liability VA can assume, which usually affects the amount of money an institution will lend you.

The loan limits are the amount a qualified Veteran with full entitlement may be able to borrow without making a downpayment. These loan limits vary by county, since the value of a house depends in part on its location.

The basic entitlement available to each eligible Veteran is $36,000. Lenders will generally loan up to 4 times a Veteran’s available entitlement without a down payment, provided the Veteran is income and credit qualified and the property appraises for the asking price.

Kentucky VA county loan limit:

  • VA’s 2019 Loan Limits are the same as the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s limits – 2019 Loan Limits (Effective January 1, 2019).
  • For purposes of determining the VA guaranty, lenders are instructed to reference only the One-Unit Limit column in the FHFA Table “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Maximum Loan Limits for Mortgages Acquired in Calendar Year 2018 and Originated after 10/1/2011 or before 7/1/2007”.

  • Competitive Interest Rates

You can find more information and how to prove your eligibility on the VA benefits website. The specific service requirements and time periods can be found here.

Unfortunately, the VA loan cannot be used for ANY type of purchase. Like many federally sponsored programs there are very specific requirements to what can be bought with a VA loan.

As defined by the VA, the loan can be used for five types of homes, all of which must be your personal home. The specific VA wording can be found here.

  1. Buy a home or condominium unit in a VA approved project.
  2. Build a Home.
  3. Simultaneously purchase and improve a home.
  4. Improve a home by installing energy-related features or making energy efficient improvements.
  5. Buy a manufactured home and/or lot.

Multi-plex for a VA loan – The VA allows you to buy a single family, duplex (2 units), triplex (3 units) and a quadplex (4 units). The key is that you have to live in one unit, however, you are still allowed to rent the other unit(s) out.

Eligibility for a VA loan
Once you know that you qualify, the next step is to figure out your eligibility. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as it sounds because it’s based on your location. The lowest total amount is $484,350 for a single family. All the numbers after that are based on location and the number of times the loan has been used. The VA location list to check eligibility can be found here.

Multiple VA Loans
The great thing about the new VA rules is not only are you given a set amount, but you can buy as many houses under the amount of the last local place. You entitlement includes the purchase price AND the funding fee (described below) of your location.

This is the Equation: Current Location Entitlement – Previous Entitlement(s) if you have multiple (Funding Fee included) = amount you have left.

So just because you are “out” in one location in regards to your VA loan eligibility, does not mean you should not have your mortgage broker check your eligibility in the next place you go. It never hurts to ask, you could be missing out on an opportunity!

Financing Above Your VA Loan
The VA loan does allow you to finance above your VA loan amount. The key thing to note is anything above the VA funding amount requires a down payment of 25%. So if you go above your funding amount by 10,000 you will now owe a down payment of $2,500.

VA Funding Fee
The VA funding is the only downside to the VA loan and using it for multiple loans. The VA loan charges a funding fee for all their loans. The rates depends on a couple of different variables so certainly look at this chart to figure out your funding fee.

Waiving of the Funding Fee
If you have a VA disability rating then you should definitely check out this article. I explain all the regulations and how all those fees/other expenses could be waived.

The VA loan is truly an amazing loan. There are so many nuances and great benefits. I highly recommend you find a great mortgage broker who can walk you through all the different possibilities. Did I miss anything regarding the VA loan? What has been your experience?

What do VA Home Lenders Look for on a Loan Approval in Kentucky

What do VA Home Lenders Look for on a Loan Approval in Kentucky

What are the qualification for a Kentucky VA Home Loan?

 

  • Consistent Job and Income Stability

    • For a currently serving service member, your service will immediately qualify as a stable job.
    • For Kentucky veterans no longer on active duty, you’ll want to have at least 12 months at your current job or be in a similar line of work to your most recent work. Two years or more with an employer is the ideal job history for a mortgage.
    • If you started a new job recently, you may be able to reference your previous work history, work in the service, or educational background to support the stability of your new job. In addition to standard paperwork, if it’s a brand new job, we’ll also be looking for an offer letter.
    • Some types of jobs are inherently less stable than others. If you’re receiving a salary, your income is guaranteed short of job loss. If you’re receiving an hourly pay, then there is a good idea of what you’ll likely be making. But if you’re working any type of commission related job, your income is volatile. It could be high one month and zero the next month. For commission jobs, you’ll want to have at least two years of history reported to your tax returns. We’ll then be able to use a two-year average to determine what we can use as your monthly income.
  • Good credit scores and credit history

  •          There is no minimum credit score for VA, but most Kentucky VA lenders that I            work with  will want a 580 to 620 minimum with no foreclosure or                                bankruptcies in the last 2 years
    • You should have zero late payments on either your rent or mortgage within the last 12 months – preferably having zero late payments. If this isn’t possible, focus on keeping all current accounts paid on time. Your new history will eventually bury the old late payments.
    • If you have no credit score, we can use alternative trade lines like rent, utility  bill and car insurance. 
  • Debt to Income Ratios under 41% for lower credit score, or higher than 41% for good credit scores

    • DTI will be referenced commonly throughout the loan process. This determines how much house you can afford as it’s your monthly debts considered against the gross monthly income (GMI) we’re able to use for your mortgage.
    • Ideally, your total DTI will be below 41% of your gross monthly income. This means someone who makes $5,000 monthly would want all of their collective credit related debts + new mortgage to be below $2,050 for the month. For example, According to CNBC, the average car loan is $523 a month. If you add in another $27 for a credit card, that would be $550 in credit debts + housing. So, your mortgage payment would want to be under $1,500. You can potentially be approved for more, but this would be the ideal number to aim for.
    • Residual Income requirements of $1000 or more a month for most veteran borrowers in Kentucky 
  • Your veteran status.
    • You must have at least 90 days of active duty service.
    • For Reserves, at least six years of service.
    • For veterans, you must have a discharge other than dishonorable.

How you apply for a VA Home loan In Kentucky

The first step is to get  your  (COE and DD Form 214 for A Kentucky VA Mortgage Loan) in order as well as reviewing your information to make sure you qualify. If you don’t, we can get you on the right track.

 

​Kentucky ​VA Loan limits ​​

 

Determining your eligibility and the maximum purchase price is the first step you’ll need to take for your ​Kentucky ​VA Loan. VA Loans don’t technically have a maximum mortgage/loan limit, but they do have a maximum amount they’ll 100% finance. On the other hand, FHA does have a maximum mortgage. This is an actual limit on the amount you can borrow.

Using a VA Loan allows you to finance up to 103.3% of the purchase price, with 100% going towards the purchase and the remaining 3.3% eligible to go towards your closing costs. Determining your eligibility will involve reviewing your veteran status, Certificate of Eligibility (COE), county limits, income, credit, and job stability. These factors will all contribute to your VA maximum mortgage.

The first thing you’ll need to do is to make sure you’re an eligible veteran and confirm your Certificate of Eligibility is ready for your VA Loan. If you’ve already got that sorted out, then you’re ready to start shopping for how much you’ll qualify for.

Kentucky VA Mortgage Guidelines for 2019

How can I get a VA Mortgage loan in Kentucky in 2019?

 

Kentucky veterans and active duty service members are eligible. However, all veterans, active duty service members and National Guard members must meet certain requirements.

see below requirements for Kentucky VA Mortgage Loans:

  • Served 90 consecutive days during wartime
  • Served 181 days during peacetime
  • Have more than six years of service with the National Guard or Reserves

Also, Kentucky VA loans are available to the surviving spouses of military members who died in the line of duty.

How does a Kentucky VA Home Mortgage Loan Work?

The Veterans Administration guarantees the loan, but they do not make it.. VA sets forth the guidelines as far as credit, income, assets, property requirements and inspections, but the lenders use this to make a lending decision. Usually the credit, income and assets, i.e. bank statements, pay stubs and tax returns, along with credit report and credit score to get a pre-approval upfront. The appraisal report is done by VA assigned appraiser in the area and neither the lender, borrower, realtors, sellers, have no control as far as choosing the Kentucky VA appraiser. VA will typically give the VA approved appraiser 10 days to make contact, and usually get the appraisal report back within 7-10 days after inspections.

How much can I borrow with a Kentucky Mortgage VA loan?

The Kentucky VA Mortgage Loan Limits for 2019 were just published. . Currently, loan limits are $484,500 for all Kentucky Counties in 2019. They go off conventional guidelines from Fannie Mae. Now, will  you get approved for $484,500 loan limit?–That all depends on your credit, income, assets, monthly debts when they run the application through AUS or DU.

What is the credit score or fico score required for a Kentucky VA Mortgage loan?

VA has issued guidelines that calls for no minimum credit score. However, most VA Kentucky  lenders will want to see a credit score of at least 620 before approving the mortgage. There are two lenders we work with currently that will do down to a 500 credit score, but it is very difficult to get them approved . The best thing to do is let someone pull your credit and see where you are at and go from there. A lot of lenders you will see will want a 620 credit score, with a few going down to 580. Again, this will vary greatly from lender to lender and be based upon our automated underwriting findings (AUS) from Desktop Underwriting.

Do VA Loans Require a Downpayment.

Kentuck VA home buyers do not require a down payment. It does not matter if you have a 500 credit score or 780 credit score, all VA loans offer a no down payment option to applicants. The only reason you would need a down payment is if you had to qualify for the home loan payment, or if  you were borrowing with a co-applicant, that is not married to the borrower. For example, if a veteran is legally married, and his wife is not a veteran, that is fine with VA and you would not need a down payment, However, let’s say the borrower and his friend or girlfriend wanted to buy a house together, and we needed the co-borrowers income and credit to make it work, then you would need to put down 12% on the home loan since the borrower and co-borrower are not legally married.

Mortgage insurance on A VA loan?

One of the great benefits of VA loans is that have no monthly mortgage insurance premium. When you compare this to FHA, USDA mortgage loans in Kentucky, you would need to pay monthly mortgage insurance.

There is an upfront funding fee from VA , but if you are disabled, you can get this waived sometimes. See chart below

Kentucky VA Funding Fee Information

In order for VA to guarantee the home loan, there is a closing cost assessed by the VA to originate the loan called a funding fee. This fee will vary, depending upon the type of Kentucky  VA loan, whether this is your first time to use your entitlement, if you are a disabled veteran, the down payment and if you served active duty or in the National Guard/Reserves.

How long does it take to close a VA Mortgage loan in Kentucky?

There’s no set-in-stone time limit for how long the Kentucky VA loan process takes, but on average, you should be able to get it done within 30 days depending on the appraisal report and home inspections

VA mortgage loans is the only Government sponsored mortgage that requires a termite inspection., so keep that in mindo on your inspections when you are having them done after the accepted contract.

Can I only use a VA loan once in Kentucky?

This is a common myth with many VA eligible home buyers and homeowners. If you’re eligible for the VA loan, then you’re eligible for your entire life. Plenty of home buyers end up using the VA loan more than once, mostly because it’s arguably the best loan program out there.

Can I get a Kentucky VA Mortgage loan with a previous Bankruptcy or Foreclosure?

 VA
  • If the applicant has finished making all payments satisfactorily, the lender may conclude that the applicant has reestablished satisfactory credit
  • If the applicant is still in the repayment period, as long as 12 months’ worth of satisfactory payments have been made and the trustee or Bankruptcy Judge approves of the new credit, the lender may give favorable consideration.
VA
  • 2 years from discharge date
  • Manual underwrites allowed
  •  If the bankruptcy was discharged within 1 to 2 years, it is probably not possible to determine that the applicant is a satisfactory credit risk unless both of the following requirements are met
  1. The applicant has obtained credit subsequent to the bankruptcy and has made satisfactory payments over a continued period of time, and
  2. The bankruptcy was caused by circumstances beyond the control of the applicant such as unemployment, prolonged strikes, medical bills not covered by insurance and the circumstances are verified.   Divorce is not viewed as a circumstance beyond the applicants control

WHAT IS A VA GUARANTEED LOAN?

VA guaranteed loans are made by private lenders, such as banks, credit unions, or mortgage companies to eligible veterans for the purchase of a home, which must be for their own personal occupancy. Veterans apply for a loan through a lender and if the loan is approved, VA guarantees a portion of the total loan amount. VA’s guarantee allows the veteran to obtain a competitive interest rate without having to make a downpayment. The amount of a loan a veteran can be approved for depends on the property location and entitlement available, as well as credit and income factors. Please contact a VA-approved lender for assistance in determining the loan amount that you may qualify for.

VA LOANS OFFER THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT FEATURES:

Equal opportunity for all qualified veterans to obtain a VA loan.
No down payment (unless required by the lender or the purchase price is more than the reasonable value of the property).
Buyer informed of reasonable value.
Negotiable interest rate.
Ability to finance the VA funding fee (plus reduced funding fees with a downpayment of at least 5% and exemption for veterans receiving VA disability compensation).
Closing costs are comparable with other financing types (and may be lower).
No mortgage insurance premiums.
An assumable mortgage.
Right to prepay without penalty.
For homes inspected by VA during construction, a warranty from builder and assistance from VA to obtain cooperation of builder.
VA assistance to veteran borrowers in default due to temporary financial difficulty.

VA DOES NOT DO THE FOLLOWING:

Guarantee that a home is free of defects. VA guarantees only the loan. It is the veteran’s responsibility to assure that he/she is satisfied with the property being purchased. The VA appraisal is not intended to be an “inspection” of the property. A veteran should seek expert advice (a qualified residential inspection service), as necessary, BEFORE legally committing to a purchase agreement

.If you have a home built, VA cannot compel the builder to correct construction defects although VA does have the authority to suspend a builder from further participation in the home loan program. VA cannot guarantee that a veteran is making a good investment. VA cannot provide a veteran with legal services.

HOW DOES A VETERAN OBTAIN A VA GUARANTEED LOAN?

Contract to purchase: Veteran selects home and discusses purchase with seller or selling agent and signs purchase contract conditioned on approval of a VA guaranteed loan. Loan application: Veteran selects lender, presents Certificate of Eligibility, and completes loan application.

Lender will develop all credit information and request VA to assign a licensed appraiser to determine the reasonable value for the property.
veteran will pay for credit report and appraisal unless the seller agrees to pay.
Either VA or the lender will issue a value for property for loan purposes based on the appraisal.

Loan decision: If the established value is acceptable to all parties and the lender develops that a veteran is credit and income qualified, the loan may be approved. Most lenders are authorized to make this decision. Loan closing: Veteran (and spouse) attend the loan closing and sign the note, mortgage, and other related papers.

The lender or closing attorney will explain the loan terms and requirements as well as where and how to make the monthly payments. When the loans reported to VA, the Certificate of Eligibility is annotated to reflect the use of entitlement and returned to the applicant. (The loan closing procedure may vary in some states.)

HOW CAN I OBTAIN MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VA HOME LOANS? Call VA at 1-877-827-3702 or visit VA’s web site at or contact a local lender or real estate professional.
