VA Farm Loan Requirements For 2020

Agricultural & Farming Operations

Some VA lenders will have a problem even if there is no farming income but the property looks like a farm.  If they see livestock or a vineyard or crop planted they will consider the home a farm and turn down a VA farm loan. A horse or equestrian property could also be cause for denial because of buildings on the property for riding and horse boarding.

Why Do You Need A VA lender That Treats VA Farms Like Other Homes?

Since farming income is a barrier to getting a VA loan with most lenders, you need a VA lender that treats VA farms like any other home. HomePromise is just such a VA lender with an unconventional approach to  VA loans. Keep scrolling to learn more about the types of VA agricultural loans we provide.

VA Horse & Home Loans

Some lenders don’t permit Equestrian (or Equine) VA Loans. The VA guidelines don’t prohibit making loans to Equestrian properties so if you’ve been denied, don’t give up! The VA guidelines permit lending on Horse and Home properties so a VA loan is possible.


VA Cattle Farm Loans

A Cattle Farm VA loan is a loan on a property that is used by the homeowners to raise cows or steers. These types of homes often have larger acreage fenced as pasture and buildings designed as stables or to support farming operations. Most VA lenders won’t permit livestock on the property but that is not the case with HomePromise. 

The VA guidelines permit lending on Horse and Home properties so a VA loan is possible.

VA Farm Loans

In some cases, VA lenders will consider a house to be a farm even if there is no farm income earned because the physical characteristics of the home make it look like a farm.  But even if a home doesn’t look like a farm, if a Veteran has farm income then most VA lenders will deny the Veterans application for a VA loan.

That’s right, just because the Veteran received farm income they will deny the loan – even if the farm income is just a few hundred dollars a year!  HomePromise doesn’t do that to Veterans.
