2019 VA Loan Limits for Washington State

The loan limits for VA mortgage loans have been announced. 2019 VA loan limits will follow conforming mortgage limits for single family homes.

Here are the 2019 VA Loan Limits:

King County, Pierce County and Snohomish County: $726,525

All other counties: $484,350

VA loan amounts can exceed the loan amounts referenced above. The “limit” is the maximum a veteran can borrower without having a down payment.  Veterans may receive a reduced down payment when the loan amount exceed the loan “limit”.

If a qualified Veteran wanted to buy a home above the loan limit (aka “VA Jumbo”), their minimum down payment is 25% of the difference between the county loan limit and the sales price.

Home Sellers should really consider accepting VA home buyers. Just because they’re putting less down, does not mean they are less qualified. VA home buyers have EARNED this benefit by serving our country. And these days, VA mortgage loans are not any more or less challenging to process and close than any other type of home mortgage. VA loans do not have monthly mortgage insurance and they have very competitive mortgage rates.
