Deciding to purchase a house in Indiana is a huge financial decision, but with the unique benefits provided by the VA loan, your dream of homeownership just got that much easier.
With the average listing price of a home in Indiana landing at $287,643 the VA loan’s signature $0-money-down benefit is a considerable advantage for Indiana homebuyers.
How to get a VA Loan in Indiana
VA loans are made by private lenders and guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Because private lenders make the loans and not the VA, you need to find a lender licensed in the state you plan to purchase or refinance.
VA borrowers in Indiana should also consider the cost and impact of VA loan limits and property taxes when making their home purchase.
Indiana VA Loan Limits
As of January 1, 2020, VA borrowers in Indiana with their full VA loan entitlement are not restricted by VA loan limits. This means you can borrow as much as a lender is willing to lend without needing a down payment.
However, veterans without their full VA loan entitlement are still bound to Indiana’s VA loan limits.
As of Jan 1, 2021, VA loan limits for all counties in Indiana are $548,250.
Property Taxes in Indiana
Another consideration for VA buyers in Indiana is property taxes. For certain VA buyers, there are exemptions.
You may be eligible for a property tax exemption in Indiana if you meet one of the following conditions:
If you are a 100% disabled veteran as a result of service, you may receive a property tax exemption of up to $24,960.
If you are 10% disabled or more due to serving and the age of 62 or older, you may receive a property tax exemption of up to $24,960.
