What Determines My Rate?

VA loan interest rates are influenced by a variety of factors, including:

  • Credit Score

  • Debt-to-Income Ratio

  • Loan Duration ( 15- or 30-year)

  • Current Market Conditions

Due to the risk involved in issuing a loan, a good credit score almost always means a lower rate. However, even if you have imperfect credit, you may still have an easier time qualifying for a low rate die to the VA Guaranty.

VA Interest Rate vs APR

It is important to understand the difference between your interest rate and Annual Percentage Rate (APR). The interest rate on your VA loan is the cost you pay each year to borrow the money and does not reflect fees and charges you may incur to get the loan.

The APR on a VA loan is a broader reflection of borrowing costs, including the interest rate and other potential costs and fees associated with getting the loan.

APR can take into consideration the following items:

  • Interest rate
  • Origination fees and costs
  • Closing agent fees
  • Discount points
  • Other fees dependent on the specific transaction

Your APR is likely to be higher than your base VA loan interest rate. APR is a tool that can help you compare mortgage offers. But understand that lenders can calculate it differently.

VA Loan Rates and APR calculations valid as of May 9, 2024, 9:15 am CST.  All rate availability will depend upon an individual’s credit score and details of the loan transaction. First-time homebuyers may not qualify for a jumbo product. The interest rates presented are subject to change at any time and cannot be guaranteed until locked in by your Loan Officer.  All rates assume an owner-occupied primary residence not including manufactured homes, and are calculated using a default credit score of 720 (which may be changed through our interactive drop-down menu and any change to the default credit score may result in a change in the displayed rate) with applicable charges and fees (including the VA Funding Fee) included, and also assume 181 days of eligible active regular (non-reserves) military service with no service-related disabilities or previous use of a VA Loan.  The loan rates and APR calculations also assume certain additional facts according to the type of loan described.
