California VA Loan Limits by County for 2013

The Veterans Administration has announced the VA Loan Limits for California for 2013.   The formula for generating the VA Loan Limits was altered by Congress in 2008, and was reinstated beginning August 6, 2012.

The VA Jumbo Loan allows Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel to purchase homes in higher cost areas of California and Washington at loan amounts more in sync with local housing prices.    Qualified Vet’s can purchase up to $987,500 with zero money down.

Some examples of the new VA Loan Limits in California are: Qualified Veterans in Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura, Brea, Pasadena, Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, and Long Beach may qualify for a 100% VA Jumbo loan up to $668,750.  San Diego County cities including San Diego, Oceanside, Chula Vista, El Cajon, Encinitas, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, la Mesa and National City a Vet can borrow up to $500,000 with no money down when buying a house.   San Jose vets can go up to $823,750 with no money down VA Purchase Loan.   SF Bay Area Vets buying a home in San Francisco, Alameda, Oakland, Fremont, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Daly City, etc can qualify up to $987,500 for a 100% VA Loan as well.    We also offer VA Loans that exceed these limits with the appropriate amount of Down payment on purchases, or equity on Refinances.
