Do veterans pay funding/orgination fees if they are using their VA the first time. My loan officer said she never heard of such.

Hi Kazmax,

The good part is you add to your loan. Good luck

I am 100% disabled. Where can I find that information in the VA regulation? What about transfer tax fees on a new home?

Veterans pay a funding fee of 2.15% unless they are disabled or put down 5%. It's rolled into the loan and does not have to be paid upfront as a fee. Although that is certainly an option.
So if you have a loan of $100,000 the total loan amount would be $102,150. I specialize in VA loans and would be happy to explain the features and benefits of the loan to you. What exactly is your loan officer unclear about? Hope this was helpful, always available to assist a veteran.

Thank You,

Unless a Veteran is disabled they will pay a funding fee at closing to use the loan. Usually, this is added to the loan amount and financed, although the option to pay up front is also there. Do not confuse an origination fee from a lender with the funding fee of a VA loan as they are two different things.

I'm confused about (1%) orgination fee, then discount points (-1%).
