An Important Note to Remember about VA Mortgage Maximum Loan Amountsā€¦

As you know, VA does not require a Down Payment but a qualifying veteran can always choose to make a down payment if they wish. The listed maximum loan amounts are the most that a qualifying veteran can borrow without needing a down payment. A veteran can always make a down payment on a higher priced home to keep their new loan amount at or below the VA Maximum Loan Amount.
