VA loan calculator for investing

2 Replies

Is there a real estate calculator that has a VA option so you can run the numbers on the property with 0% down? I recently tried on a investing calculator to run the numbers on a potential houses I will be using the VA loan on but where it says down payment I have 0 which returns an infinite cocroi but I know it's different bc it is not taking into consideration the use of the VA loan. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you! If you need more clarification as I'm not the best explaining please let me know.

Hey Nico,

If you use a VA loan and put zero cash into a deal your COCROI is infinite as long as you at least make one dollar...

Instead of running your numbers that way, increase the amount paid for the property by 1% and then put that amount as the down payment. That will account for the VA funding fee and give you a good look at your numbers.

Good luck!
