ORVETS Home Loan Rate Drops to 4.125%
Press Release
May 25, 2011
 
SALEM -- The Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs (ODVA) has lowered their 30-year term fixed home mortgage rate to 4.125 percent to qualified veteran home buyers. 
 
The ORVET Home Loan Program offers one of the lowest home loan interest rates available. This rate includes a 1.375 percent loan origination fee with an APR of 4.266 percent.
 
A state of Oregon veteran benefit, the ORVET Home Loan Program is separate from the federal VA home loan guaranty program.  Even if a veteran has purchased a home using the federal VA program, they may still be eligible for an ORVET home loan. 
 
"This new reduced rate will allow some veterans to take advantage of a great opportunity for home ownership," said Jim Willis, Director of the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs. 
 
"Oregon veterans deserve the very best we can offer them because of their brave sacrifice and service to our country."

The ORVET Home Loan is a lifetime benefit for eligible veterans after Oregon voters approved ballot Measure 70 last year.  The measure expanded veteran eligibility for the ORVET Home Loan and eliminated the previous constitutional 30-year eligibility restriction. 
 
ORVET’s current maximum loan amount is $417,000 for a single family, owner occupied residence.
