We have seen a few clients lately buying a second property and wanting to use their VA without selling it. They have a VA loan already. They can do this most of the time, but they may have to put money down on the new purchase as they may not have enough eligibility to buy a second home using their VA without selling or refinancing their first home.

We have also seen many VA buyers who want to sell their house but want to buy a new one using their VA, and we can’t close on the new one until their eligibility is restored. So we either have to delay the closing of the purchase 24-48 hours after the VA Loan is paid off or if they want to buy before they sell, we can pay their departing residence off with a Bridge Loan. They can purchase the new house with no money down using their eligibility now that the other VA loan is paid off!

When you have a Veteran buying with a Non-Veteran, they will need to put 12.5% down on the property they are purchasing. The veteran must qualify for at least 50% of the mortgage in these scenarios.

A condo always needs to be approved by VA whether the property is attached or detached! VA recently killed their approval with Mariposa in SCV when they found out about the litigation.

I think that is enough on VA pointers for today!

So rates got better yesterday and today! Shhh! Let’s keep it quiet and not scare them. Rates are at their lowest levels since September 22. UGH! We are heading in the right direction and are starting to see some signs of inflation possibly going away. I am hearing that the ports of LA have cleared up, which means the supply chain issues are starting to become a thing of the past here in Los Angeles, and things are slowly clearing up around the rest of the country. No more supply chain issues is good news for inflation.
