VA Home Loan Calculator
VA Home Loan Calculator
VA home loan calculator is great but are not always accurate and can be found on various websites such as VA.gov, Bankrate.com, and Zillow.com. These calculators allow you to input information such as your income, credit score, and the price of the home you are interested in purchasing to estimate your potential loan amount, monthly payment, and other costs associated with a VA home loan. Many times, a VA home loan calculator can be misleading as they tend to quote inaccurate interest rates or incorrect property tax and Insurance amounts. It’s important to note that these calculators are only estimates and actual loan terms may vary. It’s always best to consult with a VA approved lender (such as myself) for a more accurate assessment. My team and I do not charge to assist with your home loan pre-approval, provide competitive rates, and waive all lender fees for Veterans. The average turn time for a full pre-approval is 24-48 hours from the point when a fully completed credit application is received and all required documentation is provided.
Benefits of a pre-approval/Accurate numbers
A pre-approval is a detailed process in which a lender evaluates a potential borrower’s creditworthiness (in accordance with the VA Guidelines) and provides a pre-approval letter indicating the maximum loan amount for which the borrower may be approved. There are several benefits to obtaining a pre-approval for a home loan:
- It gives you a clear idea of how much you are qualified for to spend on a home, which can help you narrow down your search and save time.
- It shows sellers that you are a serious and qualified buyer, which can give you an edge over other offers on a property.
- It can speed up the closing process, as the lender has already evaluated your creditworthiness and determined the maximum loan amount for which you may be approved.
- It can also help you get better rate and terms as lender has done their due diligence and ready to lend you money.
- It can also give you an insight of your credit score and areas where you need to work on.
It’s important to take note that a pre-approval is not a guarantee to lend, and final approval is subject to a property appraisal and the lender’s underwriting guidelines. Luckily, I have been closing VA loans for over two decades and constantly keep up on the VA guidelines to help ensure a smooth stress-free closing once you find the perfect home.
