VA Loan Info: Home Loan Rates
Veteran Loan Interest rates are very competitive, and often lower than other loan programs.
Interest is the cost of borrowing money. The interest rate is a vital part of determining how much you pay on your mortgage.
Interest rates can change on a daily basis. The rate is based on market factors. Personal factors such as credit, employment status and your long- and short-term goals, may also affect the rate you can qualify for.
One reason that borrowers with VA loans often have lower interest rates than other borrowers is the Rate Reduction Program. This program is often called the Streamline Refinance Program.It’s a program backed by the Federal Government that helps VA borrowers easily refinance to lower rates to keep them competitively low.
The Rate Reduction Program allows VA loan holders to take advantage of changes in interest rates. When rates fall, you don’t need to completely re-qualify or obtain an appraisal to refinance to a lower interest rate. It’s a simple and easy way to reduce your mortgage payment without all the red tape and hassle of a full refinance.
