Starting with 5 important things to consider when selling your home with an assumable VA loan.

1.  A larger pool of potential buyers:

Selling your home with an assumable VA loan opens up your property to a broader range of potential buyers. Those eligible for VA loans, including active-duty military members, veterans, and certain surviving spouses, can take advantage of this feature. By increasing the buyer pool, you improve your chances of finding a suitable buyer quickly.

2.  Competitive advantage in the market:

In a competitive real estate market, offering an assumable VA loan can give your property a unique selling point. Buyers may be attracted to the opportunity to assume a VA loan with its favorable terms, such as low or no down payment and potentially lower interest rates compared to other loan options.

3.  Faster and smoother closing process:

The assumption of an existing VA loan typically involves less paperwork and can expedite the closing process. This can be advantageous for both you as the seller and the buyer, as it reduces the time and effort typically required to secure a new mortgage.

4.  Potential for a higher sales price

The ability to assume a VA loan could lead to an increased willingness among buyers to pay a premium for your home. If interest rates have risen since you obtained the VA loan, the assumption can be especially attractive as the buyer can lock in a lower interest rate, potentially making your home more valuable to them.

5.  Cost savings for the buyer:

When a buyer assumes an existing VA loan, they may save on some loan fees and closing costs that are typically associated with obtaining a new mortgage. This potential cost savings could be an added incentive for buyers, making your home more appealing in comparison to other properties on the market.

As with any decision related to selling your home, it’s essential to consider your specific circumstances. To get a more accurate assessment of how much more you can make on the sale of your home with an assumable VA loan, consider consulting a local real estate company like Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty, who can provide insights into your specific market and conduct a comparative market analysis for your property. Take the time to evaluate the local market, potential buyer preferences, and your financial goals to determine if selling with an assumable VA loan is the right choice for you.

The VA Mortgage Loan Program has gone through a myriad of changes over the years, and they all benefit the Veteran. Having your present loan assumed does not preclude you from obtaining another VA loan, however, it may affect the size of the loan that you can obtain without a downpayment.  Only the Veterans Administration can determine how large of a loan you can obtain without a downpayment.  There is a process to determine this, but there is no cost or obligation and our dedicated VA Loan Specialists can assist you.

The person assuming your loan only needs to be able to financially qualify to be able to assume the loan.  When the purchaser has “qualified” the loan is then in the purchaser’s name and the Veteran  has no further liability.

There is not a set cost, however, your present mortgage lender may charge a fee, that the lender sets. The Assumption Fee is typically paid by the purchaser.  Other standard seller closing costs are incurred, as with any sale.

One of the many enhancements to the VA Mortgage Loan program is the ability of a Veteran to obtain another zero downpayment mortgage loan. However, if the price of the property being purchased exceeds the amount of the VA guarantee the purchaser will have to make a downpayment of a portion of the overage.  Only the VA can determine how much eligibility a Veteran has available for an additional mortgage loan.  There is no cost or obligation to have one of our dedicated VA Loan Specialists assist you in determining this. Since the answer is probably part of your decision about allowing a purchaser to assume your present VA loan it is wise to determine your remaining eligibility prior to placing your house on the market.
