Current VA homeowners can take advantage of low VA mortgage rates regardless of how much their home is worth by utilizing an Interest Rate Reduction loan (IRRL) or “VA Streamline” for short. A VA Streamline can help a Phoenix area Veteran homeowner lower their VA mortgage payment without having to do all the work they had to when they closed on their original purchase money VA loan.
Advantages of a VA Streamline
- NO Appraisal Required
- NO Income Verification Required
Basic VA Streamline Refinance Guidelines
- VA homeowner must benefit financially
- VA homeowner must have a valid VA Certification of Eligibility (“COE”)
VA Streamline Process
A VA Streamline Refinance is a simplified VA refinance. Some of the major requirements associated with a typical mortgage are not required with a VA streamline (including the need for an appraisal and to verify income).
Step 1: Apply with your Mortgage Lender
Step 2: Provide documentation requested by your Mortgage Lender (see below)
Step 3: Sign a disclosure package provided by your AZ Mortgage Lender
Step 4: Sit back while your Mortgage Lender processes your VA streamline
Step 5: Close on your VA Streamline and save money!
