Veterans Administration (VA) HISTORY Established in 1930 to provide federal benefits to veterans and their families, including health care, financial assistance, and burial benefits. In 1944, the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act (known as the “G.I. Bill” was signed into law and provided a variety of benefit programs to facilitate the adjustment of returning veterans to civilian life, including federally insured home loans with no down payment. In 1989, the Veterans Administration was renamed the Department of Veterans Affairs. Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans

Common VA Terms COE (Certificate of Eligibility): Certificate provided by VA to evidence a Veteran’s entitlement to participate in the VA Home Loan Guarantee Program. A COE is the only reliable Proof of Eligibility for the Lender In order to get a COE, lenders can access the ACE (Automated Certificate of Eligibility) System on the internet to prove eligibility CRV (Certificate of Reasonable Value): The VA certifies the fair market value of the property once the home is appraised Entitlement: Dollar amount of loan guarantee that the Veteran’s Benefit Administration (VA) provides to each eligible veteran Funding Fee: The fee that VA charges when a veteran uses its Home Loan Guarantee Program This fee is generally rounded to 2% to 3% depending on whether its your 1st VA loan; disabled veterans may be exempt from this fee NOV (Notice of Value): This form is issued to the borrower in conjunction with an appraisal Every NOV must include an estimated reasonable value of the property, estimated economic life of the property, and list of any property related conditions and requirements necessary for VA loan guaranty Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans

6 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
What is a VA Guaranteed Loan? VA guaranteed loans are loans made by private lenders such as banks, savings and loans, or mortgage companies to eligible veterans for the purchase of a home THAT MUST BE FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL OCCUPANCY. A veteran applies with a lender and once approved, VA will guarantee a portion of it to the lender. This guarantee protects lenders against loss in the event of foreclosure, up to the amount of the guaranty, and allows a veteran favorable financing terms. The Veterans Benefit Act of 2004 changed the maximum guaranty amount to 25% of the Freddie Mac Conforming loan limit. Example: The Freddie Mac Conforming loan limit is $417,000. $417,000 x 25% = $104,250 Therefore, the maximum guaranty amount is $104,250 6 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans 6

What the VA Loan Offers Benefits of a VA Loan: NO DOWN PAYMENT NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE INSURANCE PREMIUMS NO RESERVE REQUIREMENTS – Conforming 1 unit only (Own no other real estate) 100% GIFT FUNDS ALLOWED Ability to finance the funding fee (plus reduced funding fee depending on down payment, and the exemptions for veterans receiving compensation) Fully Assumable to qualified borrowers VA does NOT do the following: Guaranty that the property is free of defects. VA guarantees only the loan. It is the veterans responsibility to assure that they are 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 service) as necessary BEFORE legally committing to a purchase contract. 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 can’t guarantee the veteran is making a good investment. Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans

CAIVRS CAIVRS (Credit Alert Interactive Voice Response System) is a HUD- maintained system to determine if the borrower has defaulted on any federally-assisted loan. A CAIVRS inquiry must be performed on all borrowers. HUD offers online access for CAIVRS to current FHA lenders, and to VA lenders with registration. https://vip.vba.va.gov (Veterans Information Portal) Consider any obligations appearing in CAIVRS when qualifying. Any delinquent or default disqualifies the borrower from obtaining the loan, unless brought current or to satisfactory status with the Federal Agency and a clear CAIVRS is received. 17 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans 17

31 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
VA Guaranty Samples Calculations… Example 1: Veteran has full entitlement available and is purchasing a home for $300,000 where the county loan limit is $417,000. $417,000 x 25% = $104,250 Maximum Guaranty and Available Entitlement $300,000 x 25% = $75,000 Guaranty and Down Payment Combination Required Since VA’s guaranty is limited to the lesser of 25% of the county loan limit or 25% of the loan amount, VA will guaranty $75,000 on Veteran’s $300,000 loan in this county. A down payment should not be required. Example 2: Veteran has used $48,000 of entitlement on a prior loan, which may not be restored, and is purchasing a home for $320,000 where the county loan limit is $625,000. $625,000 x 25% = $156,250 Maximum Guaranty and Available Entitlement $156,250 - $48,000 = $108,250 Entitlement Available $108,250 x 4 = $433,000 Maximum Loan Amount with 25% Guaranty Since the proposed loan amount will be less than $433,000, the lender will receive 25% VA Guaranty on the loan of $320,000. Only 2% discount points may be financed; rest can be paid in cash Appraisal or Credit report may be required by investor – fee can be included in loan 31 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans 31

VA Guaranty Samples Calculations… Example 3: Veteran has used $104,250 of entitlement on a prior loan, which may not be restored and is purchasing a home for $380,000, where the county loan limit is $815,000. $815,000 x 25% = $203,750 Maximum Guaranty $203,750 - $104,250 = $99,500 Entitlement Available $99,500 x 4 = $398,000 Maximum Loan Amount with 25% Guaranty Since the proposed loan amount will be less than $398,000, the lender will receive 25% VA Guaranty on the loan of $380,000. A down payment should not be required. Example 4: Veteran has full entitlement available and is purchasing a home for $800,000 where the county loan limit is $729,750. $729,750 x 25% = $182, Maximum Guaranty and Available Entitlement $182, / $800,000 = 22.81% Guaranty $800,000 x 25% = $200,000 Guaranty and Down Payment Combination Required $200,000 - $182, = $17, Down Payment A down payment of $17, is required.

84 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
VA Funding Fee What is a VA Funding Fee? This is a charge that most Veterans pay to use the VA Loan Guaranty Program (similar to the FHA UFMIP) A National Guard/Reservist member who has been on active duty under USC Title 10 for 90+ days will be considered “Regular Military” for funding fee purposes Required at time of closing. Helps defray the cost of the VA Home Loan Program. Calculated on the full loan amount. Fee can be paid in cash, financed or paid from proceeds Can be paid by veteran, seller or via premium pricing. For loan amounts greater than $417,000, the Funding Fee can only be financed if the loan amount + funding fee are less than the maximum loan amount for the MSA. Amount varies by: Type of veteran Down payment amount Transaction type Type of loan Use of the VA home loan program Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans Understanding Manufactured Homes

85 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
Who is EXEMPT from the VA Funding Fee?

VA Funding Fee Sample Calculations Example 1 – Funding Fee Financed: Veteran has full entitlement available and is purchasing a home for $600,000, where the county limit is $625,500 Veteran is eligible for 100% financing and is putting no money down Funding Fee is $600,000 x 2.15% = $12,900 $600,000 + $12,900 = $612,900 Since the combined loan amount plus funding fee is less than the county maximum of $625,500, the funding fee can be financed into the loan amount. The final LTV for this transaction including the funding fee is % Example 2 – Funding Fee NOT Financed: Veteran has full entitlement available and is purchasing a home for $625,500, where the county loan limit is $625,500. Funding Fee is $625,500 x 2.15% = $13,448.25 $625,500 + $13, = $638,948.25 Since the combined loan amount plus funding fee is more than the county maximum of $625,500, the funding fee cannot be financed into the loan amount and must be paid in cash The final LTV for this transaction including the funding fee is 100% Only 2% discount points may be financed; rest can be paid in cash Appraisal or Credit report may be required by investor – fee can be included in loan 88 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans Understanding Manufactured Homes 88

Important TIPS / Hot Buttons Resources Trainings, Tools, Marketing & Support MISCELLANEOUS 106 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans 106

107 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
FYI – TIPS to remember Hot Buttons Veterans purchasing loans with a non-veteran is OK but VA will only guaranty that portion of the loan attributed to the veteran and a spouse. Eg., Non-married borrower’s or two veterans may be OK; must be submitted directly to VA for approval. If two veterans are purchasing a home together, the use of 2 certificates does not mean you can double the guaranty or loan amount. We cannot issue a loan approval prior to an appraisal being ordered. A veteran can re-use VA benefits multiple times as long as there is sufficient entitlement to cover the new loan and the new loan is for a Primary Residence. A Veteran may still do a IRRRL on a property they no longer occupy. 401k loans may be disregarded Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans

108 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
FYI – TIPS to remember Hot Buttons Credit standards are a lot more stricter on VA loans compared to FHA loans especially when there are unpaid open collection accounts. Review paystub for deductions that are required to be reflected as a debt such as union dues or other job expenses reflected. List number of dependent’s once on DU. Eg., for husband and wife, list # of dependents under the first borrower only and list zero under the other. If the veteran states he/she will be living in military quarters at no cost and his/her spouse will be living in the subject property, you do not have to consider separate household expenses. Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans

109 Understanding VA Guaranteed Home Loans
FYI – TIPS to remember Hot Buttons Income should be predictable Documents should support calculations used Part time income for borrowers with a full time job is considered overtime income Non taxable income can be grossed up for determining the ratio only.
