Michigan VA Home Loan Limits

Michigan military homes

Located in the upper Midwest, Michigan is perhaps best known for its proximity to the legendary Great Lakes. The state has numerous famous landmarks, beautiful scenery and multiple national parks and forests. Often going overlooked by people who largely associate the metro area of Detroit with the entirety of the state is just how pretty it is. In fact, Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline of any area in the world. The expanse of water provides abundant outdoor and boating opportunities. Michigan is one of the premier U.S. states for recreational boating. Interestingly, residents of Michigan are never more than six miles from the source of natural water and never more than 85 miles away from the shoreline of one of the Great Lakes. A relative geographical anomaly, the state is made up of two distinct peninsulas. The peninsulas are divided into areas known as The U.P., Northern Michigan, West Michigan, Mid-Michigan, and Downstate. Important urban areas in Michigan include Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Lansing. Detroit is the first and largest city in the state, nicknamed the Motor City because of its place in this countries automobile history. The state’s population of 9,895,622 makes it the ninth largest in the country.

Michigan was admitted to the union as a state in 1837, making it the 26th state. Prior to European arrival, the Algonquian tribes such as the Ojibwe and Anishinaabe prominently inhabited the area. Interestingly, after the Revolutionary War, Michigan was not entirely ceded to the United States; in fact Great Britain maintained possession of portions of it. The state did not fall completely under American Authority until 1847.

Today, Michigan has a gross state product in the range of $408.218 billion. The American automotive industry center, the state also produces a large quantity of food products, information tech, aerospace and military equipment. Miscellaneously, Michigan is the third largest grower of Christmas trees. Both Dominos and Little Caesars were founded in the state.

Currently, although it has a rich military history, there are only two military bases located in Michigan—Selfridge Air National Guard Base and the Detroit Arsenal. The Detroit Arsenal was the first plant built in the U.S. for the purpose of mass producing tanks.

Michigan has an extensive veteran population, totaling more than 680,000. If a veteran plans to purchase a property using a VA-backed home loan, a termite inspection is required in the following counties: Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Hillsdale, Ionia, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Kent, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Mason, Monroe, Muskegon, Oakland, Oceana, Ottawa, St. Clair, St. Joseph, VanBuren, Washtenaw and Wayne. In addition, a copy of the builder’s license is required for all proposed, under construction or new construction properties.
