Every year, the Department of Veterans Affairs recalculates the maximum guaranteed loan amounts for counties across the United States based on market conditions, home values, home sales. In California, 2011 saw some counties with VA loan limits as high as $1,000,000. This is all set to change in 2012 as the new VA loan limits have been announced.
Effective August 6, 2012, the new VA loan limits for California Counties have changed. The following chart shows the new loan limits for 2012. Any counties NOT SHOWN have loan limits set at $417,000.
|San Luis Obispo||$497,500|
At present, CalVet’s maximum loan limit is $521,250.
100% financing is still available for all counties using either a VA Loan or a CalVet Home Loan. It is still possible to borrow MORE than the stated loan limit, but a down payment would be required.
