Looking to Buy a House with No Money Down for the Down Payment, then VA Home Loan is the Program You Want to Buy a House in Rancho Cucamonga California.

va home loan rancho cucamongaIf you are an active duty service member or a retired veteran of the arm services and looking to buy a house in Rancho Cucamonga California, then utilizing your VA benefit to buy a house at 100% financing. That's right no money down for the down payment, as long as you can obtain (which we can do for you) your certificate of eligibility from VA in good standing then you are on your way to start the pre-approval process to purchase a home.

The benefits of the VA home loan program are:
  • No Money down for the down payment
  • No monthly mortgage insurance
  • No pre-penalty - pay the loan off at any time
  • Easy to qualify - is the most liberal with underwriting guidelines amongst the other home loan programs 
  • Loan can be assumable 
  • Fix and adjustable term
  • Can exceed the county loan limit, will have to come in with 25% down payment from the purchase amount to the county loan limit, example: $300,000 purchase amount and county loan limit is $200,000, $100,000 difference, the buyer only needs to come in with 25% of the $100,000 which equals to $25,000 not the whole $100,000.
  • Seller can pay up to 4% of the buyers closing cost and a added benefit, the seller also can pay an additional 2% towards paying debts off for the buyer to qualify for the loan
  • If the rates should drop, the existing VA loan can be refinanced to the lower rate without an appraisal, no income needed and here in California no need for another termite report 
  • If the Veteran has a connected VA disability of 20% or more the VA funding fee is waived
  • If the Veteran has limited funds for the closing cost the lender can increase the interest rate to give a lender credit to cover the buyers closing cost 
Program guidelines are subject to change without notice and interest rates move daily til you have an open escrow. It does not hurt to explore your purchase options to buy a house in Rancho Cucamonga using your VA eligibility. 

I welcome the opportunity to speak or meet with you and discuss your options to see how we can extend a VA purchase home loan. Please call me direct at 909-503-5600 or email HERE to schedule an appointment to get started on homeownership.

Looking to buy a house in Ontario CA in the Inland Empire area of San Bernardino County. What type of home loan programs are available to purchase a home?

There are several home loan programs to purchase a house in Ontario CA such as loans with FHA, VA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Down Payment Assistance home loan programs.

The FHA home loan program are not limited to first time home buyers, this loan program is available to the vast majority of home buyers today. As of today the down payment is as little as 3.5% down of the purchase amount, which can come from a DPA (down payment assistance) program, gift from a family member, retirement plan and many other approved source of funds. The debt to income ratio can go higher than other loan program, once of the highest allowed, some compensating factors will help with an approval of a high debt to income ratio such as higher credit scores and reserves of funds that are sourced and verified.

The VA home loan program is available to active and retired service members that are in good standing with the Veteran's Affairs. This is a no money down payment purchase program in California with no monthly mortgage. This by far is the best performing home loan program on the market today, even at 100% financing with very liberal underwriting standards this loan program has the lowest foreclosure and delinquency rates amongst all other purchase programs. If you are a active or retired military personnel this is the program for you.

The Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac home loan programs almost a mirror image of one another with some minor adjustments with underwriting qualifications. Both now offer a 3% down payment purchase home loan program, this opens more opportunities for homebuyers to compare this option with the FHA loan program. Putting less than 20% for the down payment will require monthly mortgage insurance, on the Conventional loan program the MMI can be bought out and will eventually drop off, unlike FHA will remain throughout the life of loan if you put less than 10% down. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do have tighter underwriting standards than any other purchase programs, but still an option to explore when buying a home in Ontario California.

There are many Down Payment Assistance Program in California starting with local cities, counties and statewide programs. There are DPAs that are open to non-first time home buyers, a great option to purchase a house with limited funds to do so. The DPAs do have income limits that depend how many dependents will be living in the home, more dependents there are the more income can be used to qualify for the programs, some of the programs have high income limits so do not count this option out till we investigate your option utilizing a Down Payment Assistance programs.

There are several other purchase programs in the state of California that one can take advantage such as the USDA-RD no money down purchase program (not available in Ontario CA) as well as the HUD 184 Native American home loan program.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss your goals of buying a home in Ontario CA weather a first time home buyer or rebound buyer, let's explore your lending options. Call or text me at 909-503-5600 or email me HERE to start the conversation.
