How to get a VA Loan in Arizona

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.

For example, if you're purchasing a home in Tucson, AZ, you'll need to find a lender licensed in Arizona to do the loan.

Other Considerations for Getting a VA Loan in Arizona

VA borrowers in Arizona should also consider the cost and impact of VA loan limits and property taxes when making their home purchase.

Arizona VA Loan Limits

As of January 1, 2020, VA borrowers in Arizona 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 Arizona’s VA loan limits.

As of January 1, 2020, VA loan limits for all counties in Arizona are $548,250.

Property Taxes in Arizona

Another consideration for VA buyers in Arizona is property taxes. For certain VA buyers, there are exemptions.

A disabled Veteran in Arizona may receive a property tax exemption of $3,000 on their primary residence if the total assessed value does not exceed $10,000.

If you are required to pay property tax in Arizona, the American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau estimates you may pay the following in each county:
