What are the 2022 Loan Limits for a Delaware VA Loan?
VA Loan Limits for 2022 with Full Entitlement:
There are No VA Loan Limits for Veterans or Service Members with Full or 100% Entitlement.
VA Loan Limits for 2022 with Partial Entitlement:
Delaware Veteran Loans with Partial Entitlement have a maximum loan limit of $510,400 as of January 1, 2020 which is the maximum a veteran can borrower for a 100% financing. The Vet with Partial Entitlement can borrower more than $510,400 but must put down 25% of the amount above the maximum loan limit. So if a Delaware Veteran wanted to purchase a home for $1,000,000 he would be able to borrower 100% of $510,400 and then must put down 25% of the difference between the $1,000,000 purchase price and the maximum VA loan limit of $510,400. Below is example calculation for Veteran with Partial Entitlement:
VA Purchase Price – $1,000,000
Maximum Delaware VA Loan Limit for 100% – $510,400
Difference – $489,600
25% of the Difference – $122,400
VA Loan amount – $877,600
A Veteran or Service member with Full Entitlement would be able to borrower the whole $1,000,000 in the example above because there is no VA Loan Limit for Full Entitlement.
