If u opt to use a new-jersey loan this means that new-jersey will insure the money that the mortgage co. lends. Your biggest savings will be from not having to pay what's called PMI (private mort. insurance) approx $100 or so paid ea month unless u put down 20% - 100 added on ur mort pmt. see link below for details on PMI. I suggest calling USAA they were very helpful in answering many of my questions. USAA reps are not working off a commission, so the info they provide is not being given so they can pull you in. go to usaa.com for their contact info.
I have been in the mortgage industry for over 22 years, and I have done many new-jersey loans, including construction loans. The new-jersey gives you a benefit in home buying by not requiring a down payment from you up to $260,000. Anything over $260,000 we have to use a formula to determine your down payment. Is it still far less than any other program out there even if you purchase over $260,000. Since you are talking about it, I am making the assumption that you have never used your benefit before in purchasing a home. (You can utilize this more than once). When you obtain your new-jersey loan, you will notice that the loan amount is higher than your sales price. This is because the new-jersey adds the one time mortgage insurance cost right on top of your loan amount. So don't worry. You will have a choice of choosing a 30 year fixed rate or not. I would base this decision on how long your intent is to own the home. If you want to have an "idea" on how much home you qualify for using new-jersey guidelines, it is pretty simple. Unlike the other loan programs, new-jersey only has one ratio, and that is your total debt to income ratio. However, unlike the other agencies, they use your net income to qualify, not your gross income. This is what they call your "family support figure", which the amount needed after paying your new mortgage payment, taxes, insurance and maintenance/utility figure, and all monthly payments on debts, will depend on your family size and what area of the country you live in. So to simplify this for you, most of the time you can take 41% of your gross income and use that as a good guide as to what you can afford according to new-jersey guidelines. If you are a good credit risk (VA does not utilize the credit score system!), you can use 45% of your gross income and you should be absolutely fine. Take that 45% figure and subtract the minimum payment of your monthly debts (credit cards, student loans, car loans, etc.) The amount left over is what you can afford in PITI (principal, interest, taxes, and insurance). It has been and still is one of the best loans available. If you are short on cash or would rather pay off a debt or two before you take on a mortgage, a seller is allowed to pay the customary seller fees (this is based on the area you live in) PLUS 6% of the sales price to go towards your closing costs, prepaid taxes and insurance. And here is a secret that even most lenders do know or utilize..... the seller can pay off a debt for the veteran at closing. This may help in qualifying or simply eliminate a debt for you. The sellers contribution can be a combination of all these things as long as it does not exceed 6% of the sales price of the home (this is not inclusive of the customary fees a seller pays in your area). Example: Sales Price: $260,000 Down Payment: $0 new-jersey Funding Fee: $5,200 (this varies based on first time use or not and down payment) Total new-jersey Loan: $265,200 Gross Income: $4,500 combined 45% = $2,025 Monthly Debts are: Car $200; Credit Cards $100; Student Loan $50; Child Support $100 Subtracted from $2025 leaves an affordable house payment at $1575. *Seller can pay off my car balance of $10,000 and still pay my portion of the closing costs of $5,600. This will allow me to carry a total housing expense of $1775 per month! I really hope this makes sense to you. Kind of wordy to say the least, but trying to give it to you in "layman's terms".
You can use a new-jersey loan to buy a home. The new-jersey will guarantee your loan to a lender. That is why you can buy a home for VERY LITTLE down IF you can make the payments. Consult a loan broker in the area where you want to buy a home.
I would first like to thank you for your service to our country. Next, I think it's important for you understand that a "VA Loan" is not a program whereby the (US) government lends you money; rather, it is simply a guarantee the gov't makes to private lenders that they are protected against loss if the veteran fails to repay their loan obligation. Each lender will have their own requirements - within set gov't guidelines - for final approval of loans within their individual new-jersey programs. The first step in applying for a new-jersey loan is to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (using new-jersey Form 26-1880). You can download it for review at www.homeloans.va.gov, but recommend using your lender's ACE program to expedite receipt. A LOT depends upon your qualifying ratios and your long-term plans, i.e. how long you intend to hold the home. Your first step really should be to consult with the loan officer at your bank/credit union, or a reputable mortgage broker to find out how much you're qualified to borrow. THEN you can figure out a realistic mortgage payment that's right for you. Although interest rates are sometimes slightly higher with new-jersey loans, note that seller contributions are often REQUIRED under a lenders new-jersey program. Typically limited to a range of 3 to 9 percent, depending on the loan program and other factors, these seller "concessions" help offset your closing costs (and possibly the amount of your loan, depending upon how you work the deal), For example, if a lender requires seller pay for buyer's closing costs such as appraisal, survey and title insurance and those benefits would be worth, say $2,000, that would negate the new-jersey funding fee many lenders charge. Who knows - lender may require seller pay significantly more; I'm under contract for a Buyer/Client right now where the lender required a 4% seller contribution, immediately saving my Buyer $8K on the purchase price. These requirements, while obviously a buyer benefit, can sometimes jeopardize a deal though. Most sellers will flat out reject offers that come in with too many concessions that detract from the purchase price, so it is important that both sides clearly understand what is required (seller's required contribution is <$x.xx or x%>, what is allowed (cannot exceed <x% loan amt>) and what their obligations are before finalizing an offer. But what if you could make a seller concession worth far more than its original cost, yet still not seem like a big deal or exceed conventional guidelines... While shopping mortgages, ask lenders about the ability to "buy down" their stated interest rates - whether you go the new-jersey route or not - and if it's permissible to have seller contribution fund the "buy-down", A very powerful seller concession I pursue while negotiating on behalf of my Buyers is, rather than (or in addition to) paying cash at settlement to offset closing costs, seller pay points so that the buyer can get a lower rate. For example, if I can get $2,000 in seller concessions to "buy down" my Client's mortgage rate by 1 point, (maybe in addition to what new-jersey requires ;-) that $2,000 would yield a long-term benefit worth far more than the reduced closing costs at settlement. It's all good, as long as we remain within conventional guidelines. Make sure you have an experienced REALTOR Buyer's Agent advocate for your side of the transaction and ensure they specify adequate timelines for certain events in the Offer to Purchase & Contract. PROS: - new-jersey prohibits lenders from charging PMI, given loans are guaranteed by the gov't - gov't limits the type and amount of closing costs veteran can pay for - "VA Escape Clause" form typically used, limiting buyer's risk if property appraises for less $$ than contract purchase price - no down payment (unless required by the lender or purchase price is more than the reasonable value of the property) - can finance the new-jersey funding fee - new-jersey assistance to veteran borrowers in default due to temporary financial difficulty CONS: - some sellers wary of paying buyer closing costs - lots of additional paperwork required.........lots. - can take more time to receive report for new-jersey appraisal - can take more time to receive final loan commitment letter from lender Best of luck to the both of you, and thanks again for your service!
