Delaware VA Loan Limits for 2020 depend on whether a qualified Delaware Veteran has full entitlement or not. Veterans with full entitlement have no loan limits in Delaware or any other state for a Delaware VA Loan. The maximum VA loan limit was eliminated with the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019. If a Veteran has reduced entitlement then the VA Loan Limit will be the same as the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) conforming loan limit for the county.

    The more you know about our Delaware home loan program for Veterans, the more you will realize how little “red tape” there really is in getting a Delaware VA loan. These loans are often made without any down payment at all which means a veteran can get 100% financing. Aside from the veteran’s certificate of eligibility and the fact that the appraiser is assigned by VA, the application process is not much different than any other type of Delaware mortgage loan. And if the lender is approved for automatic processing and the Lender Appraisal Processing Program (LAPP), as more and more lenders are now, a buyer’s loan can be processed and closed by the lender without waiting for VA’s approval of the credit application or for VA to review the appraisal.Lenders are also able to use VA recognized automated underwriting systems, such as Loan Prospector and Desktop Underwriter, to facilitate the underwriting process. This makes the VA Loan a great program for Delaware First Time Home Buyers who meet the eligibility requirements.
