Several reasons exist as to why a VA Home Loan might not qualify for a VA loan.

  1. Property Condition: The minimum requirements set by the VA for a property might not be met. These requirements are designed to ensure that the property is deemed safe, structurally sound, and sanitary. The primary objective when evaluating a property by the VA is to ascertain its safety, sanitation, and structural soundness for the veteran and their family. If these requirements are not met, qualification for a VA loan would be unlikely. More information on property requirements can be found here.
  2. Appraised Value: More emphasis is placed on the appraised value of the house than the asking price. A VA mortgage loan will not be granted if the appraised value of the house does not meet the loan amount or is significantly lower than the asking price. Specific guidelines set by the VA regarding property appraisal for loans can be accessed here.
  3. Uniqueness: Properties with unique features that render them unsuitable for a VA loan are not uncommon. If the property falls under the category of a mixed-use property or an investment property, it may not qualify for a home loan. Manufactured Homes and Condos are also subject to specific guidelines to qualify for a VA Home Loan. Further details on VA Home Loan guidelines are available here.
  4. Legal Issues: Houses entangled in legal problems, such as zoning issues, unresolved lines, or other disputes, may not be deemed eligible for a VA loan. The resolution of legal concerns is paramount to ensuring eligibility. For more insights, reference can be made to this video series on VA loans.
