In 2022, the Department of Veteran Affairs eliminated loan amount restrictions. Veterans who have not previously used their entitlement can purchase a home for the amount they qualify for, regardless of price. 

 

Can I have more than one VA loan at the same time?

If you have previously used your VA home loan benefit and sold that property, you can purchase another home using your VA benefit up to the conforming loan limit for your area. If you currently have an active VA loan, you can purchase an additional owner-occupied property using your remaining entitlement.
