VA Interest Rate Reduction Loan (IRRRL)
Borrowers that have a VA Loan that is greater than 6 months old and would like to refinance may be able to take advantage of a VA Interest Rate Reduction Loan (IRRRL). A VA IRRRL may be a convenient way that you can take advantage of lower interest rates and decrease your monthly mortgage payment over the life of your loan.
The advantages of a VA Interest Rate Reduction Loan (IRRRL) include:
- No home appraisal is required
- No paystubs, bank statements or verification of employment is required
- No credit score requirements
- Reduced Funding fee that’s just 0.50% of the new loan amount
