Alabama VA Home Loan Limits

alabama state va home loan

Named after the Alabama Tribe, who occupied the area between the Tallapoosa and Coosa Rivers, the state of Alabama is located in the southern portion of the country and is known for its scenic landscape and culinary prowess. Noted for a culture rooted in “Southern hospitality”, locals are widely considered cordial and helpful. A study of contrasts, Alabama was the capital of the Civil War era confederacy as well as a center for the Civil Rights movement of 1960s. The state has a population of over 4.8 million, with the capital being Montgomery, and the largest city being Birmingham. Prior to European settlement, indigenous peoples occupied the area for thousands of years. At the time of first contact, area tribes included the Cherokee, Alabama, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Koasati. In 1540, Hernando de Soto, led the first European exploration of the state. In 1702, France developed the first European Settlement in the area at Old Mobile. The area changed hands from France to Great Brittan following the Seven Years War as West Florida. Alabama was admitted into the union as the 22nd state in December of 1819.

Following the Civil War, like most Southern States who relied economically on agriculture, Alabama suffered from the financial disenfranchisement for many years. Today, the local economy is varied. The state has invested in aerospace, education, healthcare, banking, manufacturing, and mineral extraction. The total gross state product for Alabama is in the range $170 billion. The per capita income is $22,984. Agricultural output from the state includes poultry, eggs, cattle, fish, peanuts, cotton, and grains.

Must see attractions in the state are Helen Keller’s Home, the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, and The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. The National Shrimp Festival is among the most popular events in the state with more than 200,000 people attending it annually. Perhaps the biggest attractions in the state are collegiate football games at the University of Alabama as well as Auburn University. The yearly Iron Bowl between both schools football program is one of if not the biggest college sporting event in the country.

418, 035 of the states residents are veterans. The majority of veterans who call Alabama home served in the Vietnam and Gulf Wars. Additionally, Alabama is home to seven military bases including Fort Rucker, Fort McClellan, Redstone Arsenal, Anniston Army Depot, Maxwell Air Force Base, Gunter Annex and Sector Mobile. There are 66,199 current service members living the state.

The state has a homeownership rate of just over 70 percent, and in 2012, the median selling price for a home was $118, 280.
