Find a cool list of the VA loan closing costs for buyers. If you are a veteran, learn what these mortgage closing costs are and how this is a benefit for you!
Many veterans believe that the VA loan closing costs are paid by the VA. This is not always true. There are special circumstances depending on your situation.
The buyer will be responsible for paying the VA funding fee. The closing costs can be worked out among the seller and the purchaser.
The price of the home is raised accordingly and the buyer agrees to pay the closing costs and the pre-paid costs. Don't forget homeowner's insurance. The buyer is responsible for that as well.
Since your lender requires homeowner's insurance at closing, you will want to shop for the best price with the most benefits.
Raising the price of the house is not be a problem as long as the house appraises for the price
you have agreed upon with the seller. The closing costs along with any
pre-paid expenses are typically from 3% to 5%.
The VA determines the fees that the veteran can pay as well as the mortgage closing costs. The costs are what are considered to be reasonable by each VA office in your local area.
The other costs that are incurred are non-allowable costs and they are either paid by the seller on a new home or by the lender when you refinance a VA mortgage.
And the list goes on but you get the idea of what can and cannot be charged. The lender will cover any of the fees that the borrower is not responsible for from the 1% flat fee it charges.
Just because the item is listed as one of the items that may be paid by the buyer does not necessarily mean they have to pay it. There are many of these VA loan closing costs that can be paid by the seller and are also negotiable when the offer is being made. The best way to know if you can get some of these fees paid for you is to talk to your real estate agent and see what they advise.
