How Does A Government Shutdown Impacts Home Loan?
Though there are some areas of our lives that a government shutdown could impact, many home buyers will experience minimal impact on an existing mortgage application. The answer is dependent on the type of loan in question. Here is a quick reference to help understand the direct impact of home loans.
Conventional and Jumbo Loans
The government does not back conventional and jumbo loans. Therefore, there is no impact on these loans.
FHA loans will continue to close and fund as in the normal course of business.
VA loans will continue to close and fund like the normal course of business.
USDA loans WILL NOT be able to close and/or fund without a conditional commitment. There would not be an exception to this rule.
If you are in the middle of a home loan and are concerned about your mortgage, call your lender with your questions. Most mortgages are conventional loans. Therefore, the shutdown will not directly impact these buyers.
