How to get a VA Loan in Oklahoma

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 Tulsa, OK, you'll need to find a lender licensed in Oklahoma to do the loan.

Other Considerations for Getting a VA Loan in Oklahoma

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

Oklahoma VA Loan Limits

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

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

Property Taxes in Oklahoma

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

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

  • A disabled veteran may receive a full exemption on their residence if the veteran is 100 percent disabled as a result of service
  • The Oklahoma 100 percent Veteran Disability Tax Exemption applies to sales tax, excise tax, and ad valorem tax
