About VA Loans
A VA Loan is Designed to offer long-term financing to veterans. VA mortgage loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and are guaranteed by the U.S. Veterans Administration. The VA determines eligibility and issues a certificate to qualifying applicants to submit to their mortgage lender of choice. It is generally easier to qualify for a VA loan than conventional loans.
Advantages of VA Loans
There a several benefits for a veteran to use a VA loan. The veteran can purchase a home putting zero down. There is no mortgage insurance required for a VA loan the veteran only pays a one-time funding fee that is financed into the loan. If the veteran wants to do a cashout to access equity in their home VA loans allow the veteran to cashout up to 100% of the home’s value. VA loans are more flexible with negative credit history also.
VA Loan Eligibility
Veterans need to verify that they are eligible with VA to obtain a VA Certificate of Eligibility. Depending on when the veteran served and what capacity the veteran served dictates if they are eligible or not.
