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.

For example, if you're purchasing a home in Evansville, IN, you'll need to find a lender licensed in Indiana to do the loan.

Other Considerations for Getting a VA Loan in Indiana

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.
