Seattle VA Condo Loans -VA Loans to buy or refinance Condo’s and  Condominiums in Seattle -2018 updates

VanDyk Mortgage is a VA Lender offering VA Loans to purchase or refinance Condominiums in Seattle.   The tightening credit market of the past few years has made it more difficult to attain financing on on Condominiums as Conventional Agencies Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac have added many restrictions on Condos, both in the way of reduced eligibility and also increased rates for Condo’s.   FHA also recently changed it’s rules for Condominium eligibility as well, making it even harder for Sellers and Listing Agents to sell Condo’s.

In comes the VA to the rescue for Seattle Condo Buyers and Condo homeowners.   To qualify for a VA Loan on a Condo, the condo must be on the VA Approved Condo list, which includes many existing complexes.   You can search for VA Approved Condos yourself, or let us assist you,we are here to help.

VanDyk Mortgage offers VA financing on Condos with VA Loans up to $453,100 and we also offer VA Jumbo Loans for Condo’s up to $667K with no money down (ie 100% VA Financing) .   This includes Purchase, Refinance, and the popular VA IRRRL, or VA Streamline Refinance.

The 2018 VA Loan Limit for Seattle is $667,000.  You can purchase a home with your VA Benefit up to this amount with no down payment required.

For a Seattle VA Condo purchase or refinance above the King County VA Loan limit of $667,000,  the Veteran must make an accompanying down payment of 25% of the difference between the loan limit (assuming full entitlement eligibility for the Veteran).   Here are a couple of examples:

  • A $667k Seattle VA Home Purchase would require zero down payment
  • A $700k Seattle  VA Home Purchase would only require a $8,250 down payment (1.2%)
  • A $1M Seattle  VA Home Purchase would only require $83,250 down payment (8.4%)

VanDyk does not require the seller to hold the property for 90 days prior to sale like many other lenders.   If the seller of record on the day of the purchase agreement matches, that fits within our rules.   Another name for this is the Flip Rule, or VA Flip Rule, where many banks require a seller to be on Title for 90 days minimum, we only require 1 day.

We offer VA Loans for Condo’s throughout California & Washington state.  VA Loans for Condo’s in cities such as BellevueFremontLong BeachLos Angeles, Monterrey, OaklandOceanside, Riverside, San DiegoSan Francisco, San Jose, Santa Clara, Santa Monica, SeattleTacoma, Torrance, Ventura, Yakima.
