What is the 2022 VA loan limit?

There is no VA loan limit in 2022 for homebuyers with full VA entitlement.

Beginning back in January of 2020, if a VA homebuyer has full entitlement, there is no VA loan limit. Veterans and eligible service members with full entitlement can use a VA loan to buy a home of any amount for which they qualify.

It is possible to have more than one VA loan. In cases where entitlement is not restored before closing, the maximum VA loan is calculated using the one-unit conforming loan limit.
