PenFed VA Mortgage Promotion Waives Origination Fee

For this limited time promotion, PenFed has removed the origination fee on its VA 15-Year and 30-Year Fixed mortgages for home purchases and refinances. Additional program features include no down payment, no points, and no private mortgage insurance (PMI

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) today announced that the credit union is running a limited time promotional offer that waives the origination fee requirement on its VA 15-Year and 30-Year Fixed mortgages.

For this limited time promotion, PenFed has removed the origination fee on its VA 15-Year and 30-Year Fixed mortgages for home purchases and refinances.

This promotion is available to eligible veterans interested in securing a VA mortgage for a primary home purchase or refinance. Additionally, refinances on existing VA mortgages are available on second homes or investment properties.

"This is a very exciting promotion that we are running on our VA mortgages," said Craig Olson, senior vice president of mortgage operations at PenFed. "PenFed is committed to its military members, and when you stop to consider how much the origination fee waiver will save our qualified veterans, the savings really are quite outstanding."

How does a VA Mortgage work?

Available to qualified veterans, a VA mortgage loan is obtained through a lender and guaranteed by the Veterans Administration. What makes a VA mortgage different from a Conventional mortgage is that private mortgage insurance (PMI) is not required on a VA mortgage. With a VA mortgage, the financing is made available by the lender and the Veterans Administration acts as the insurer.

VA Mortgage Features

PenFed's VA 15-Year and 30-Year Fixed mortgages include the following features that veterans will find convenient:

  • Affordability: For this promotion, the PenFed VA 15-Year and 30-Year Fixed mortgage features no down payment, no points, no origination fee1, and no private mortgage insurance (PMI).
  • Lending flexibility: Financing is available on both home purchases and refinancing - for loan amounts up to $417,000 and higher based on VA County limits.
  • Peace of mind: Free 60-day rate locks2.
  • Automatic payments: Available on all of PenFed mortgages; allowing for ease of payment.
  • PenFed also services all of its VA and Conventional mortgage loans: When you contact PenFed regarding your mortgage loan, you will always be speaking to a knowledgeable mortgage service representative.

Origination Fee Savings Example

PenFed's usual origination fee is 1% of the loan. With the origination fee waiver, a $400,000 loan would reflect a savings of $4,000.

Compare Rates and Save

Compared to other lenders, the credit union's mortgage interest rates are some of the lowest in the nation:

15-Year VA Mortgage Payment Example: For a $103,300 loan amount and 0 points, the initial interest rate is 3.375%, with a 3.935% APR. Based on current market conditions, the monthly payment schedule would be:

  • 179 payments of $732.15 at an interest rate of 3.375%
  • 1 payment of $731.91 at an interest rate of 3.375%

This payment example does not include taxes or insurance; and actual payments may be greater.

30-Year VA Mortgage Payment Example: For a $103,300 loan amount and 0 points, the initial interest rate is 4.250%, with a 4.575% APR. Based on current market conditions, the monthly payment schedule would be:

  • 359 payments of $508.17 at an interest rate of 4.250%
  • 1 payment of $509.55 at an interest rate of 4.250%

This payment example does not include taxes or insurance; and actual payments may be greater.

Who is eligible for a PenFed VA mortgage loan?

  • National Guard and Reservists who have completed 6-years of service
  • Individuals with a service related disability
  • Surviving spouses of a deceased veteran who have not remarried
