How to get a VA Loan in Nevada

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 Las Vegas, NV, you'll need to find a lender licensed in Nevada to do the loan.

Other Considerations for Getting a VA Loan in Nevada

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

Nevada VA Loan Limits

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

As of Jan 1, 2021, VA loan limits for all counties in Nevada are $548,250.

Property Taxes in Nevada

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

You may be eligible for a property tax exemption in Nevada if you meet one of the following conditions:

  • Disabled veterans with a disability rating between 60 to 79 percent are eligible for a $10,000 deduction.
  • Disabled veterans with a disability rating between 80 to 90 percent are eligible for a $15,000 deduction.

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