Lower Costs for Veterans
There is some good news for veterans that are going to use their VA entitlement to obtain a VA home loan. The funding fee that funds the government's ability to guaranty VA loans is going down. The fee is dropping .5% or even more in some cases. For regular military veterans using their entitlement for the first time, the current fee of 2.15% will be reduced to 1.4%. The fee for veterans that have used their entitlement prior will be reduced from 3.3% to 2.8%. The above chart compares the current fee compared to the new fee for loans funded after September 30, 2011.
