The 2019 VA Loan Limits for Hawaii have been announced by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). Effective immediately, the 2019 VA Loan Limit for ALL ISLANDS is:
The largest changes are for the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai, & the Big Island which saw a VA loan limit of $679,650 last year; that’s a $46,875 increase for 2019! Additionally, the VA loan limit increased approximately $13,000 for Kauai and $5,000 for Oahu for 2019.
No down payment required!
Keep in mind, the $726,525 VA loan limit reflects the maximum purchase price you are allowed with NO down payment. For a purchase price above the VA loan limit, you’ll need to make a relatively small down payment. Check out how the down payment for a VA Jumbo Loan is calculated here.
