The Nuts And Bolts

The Nuts And Bolts

  • For a non-credit qualifying VA IRRRL, while employment verification is required, income and assets verifications are not.
  • Refinance up to 100% of your home's value.
  • An IRRRL typically requires no appraisal or possibly an exterior appraisal only, to determine your home's value, which saves you money on appraisal costs and the hassle of coordinating an appointment with an appraiser.
  • Credit a consideration? No problem – credit scores as low as 620 may qualify.
  • Want to limit closing costs? A VA IRRRL offers a reduced upfront funding fee which can also be financed in the loan. Depending on the transaction, you may also finance other closing costs.
