2013 California VA Loan Limits      Go here for 2016 California VA Loan Limits 

The Veterans Administration has announced the 2013 VA Loan Limits for California. The formula for generating the VA Loan Lmits was enhanced by Congress in 2008, the legislation expired on Jan 1, 2012, and has now been reinstated as of August 6, 2012.  VA Loans with no money down are available throughout the USA to qualified Veterans up to $417,000, and in higher cost areas the zero down VA loan limit is up to $987,500 (see below for CA county VA Loan Info).   VanDyk also offers VA Jumbo loans up to $1.5M with a down payment or equity (for refinances) of roughly 25% of the difference between the county VA Loan Limit and your homes Value/Purchase Price.  Please call us to find out what the amount for your specific scenario would be.

The VA Jumbo Loan allows Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel to purchase homes in higher cost areas such as California and Washington at loan amounts much higher than the old VA limits.

Some examples in California are: Veterans in Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura, Brea, Pasadena, Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, and Long Beach may qualify for a 100% VA Jumbo loan up to $668,750.   San Diego County cities including San Diego, Oceanside, Chula Vista, El Cajon, Encinitas, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, la Mesa and National City a Vet can borrow up to $500,000 with no money down when buying a house.   San Jose vets can go up to $823,750 with no money down VA Purchase Loan.  SF Bay Area Vets buying a home in San Francisco, Alameda, Oakland, Fremont, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Daly City, etc can qualify up to $987,500 for a 100% VA Loan as well.  We also offer VA Loans that exceed these limits with the appropriate amount of Down payment on purchases, or equity on Refinances.
