Vancouver, WA - VA Loans and FHA Home Mortgage Loans Info

VanDyk Mortgage is your source for VA Loans and FHA Loans in Vancouver. We have been making FHA, VA, Conforming, and Jumbo loans since 1987. VanDyk Mortgage is a Direct Lender. We offer many loan programs for Vancouver Homebuyers and Clark County Homeowners to Purchase and refinance homes..

  • FHA Loans for Purchase and refinance

  • Jumbo Loans to $3m

Vancouver FHA Loans are available up to $418,750 with just 3.5% down payment. The FHA 2010 Loan Limit for Vancouver is $418,750. Since FHA Loans over $417K are classified as FHA Jumbo, and have slightly higher interest rates, we suggest that Vancouver FHA buyers keep their loan amount to $417K to save money.

VA Loans are available in Vancouver up to $417,000 with zero downpayment. The Vancouver VA Loan Limit in 2010 is $417,000. However, Veterans are not limited to the Clark County Loan limit of $417,000 for VA Loans. We also offer VA Jumbo Loans up to $1.5 Million with the appropriate downpayment or equity to reach the VA Guarantee requirements of 25%. Here is one of our posts on how you can get a VanDyk VA Mortgage VA Loan over your county limit.

Vancouver Conforming Loans are available up to $418,750. Conforming purchase or refinance loans are available with a minimum of 5% downpayment or equity for Vancouver up to $417K. Much like the FHA Jumbo, we do not suggest utilizing the $418,750 mark in Vancouver, as the guidelines are stricter and the rate is higher. IE - put enough down to reach $417K and save money.
