The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has numerous programs for our veterans, service members, and eligible surviving spouses.

VA Mortgage Loans
VA mortgage loans are known for having little to no down payment or mortgage insurance requirements. These costs are offset by the funding fee most applicants pay directly to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The amount of this one-time charge depends on a number of factors including how many VA loans you have received, whether you are active duty or retired, if you are National Gaurd or Reserve, and whether you have a down payment.

Qualifying for a VA Mortgage Loan
The VA offers excellent qualifying standards. The VA does not use credit scoring in their analysis of the loan. Even if you have experienced some financial difficulties in your life that caused your scores to be low but have maintained a good payment record over the past year or so, you may qualify for a VA mortgage loan. This can be a tremendous savings compared to the cost of conventional loans when the borrower’s credit scores are low.
VA Mortgage Loans may be refinanced
VA mortgage loans have built in features allowing a loan to be refinanced to a lower interest rate without all of the criteria normally associated with a conventional loan. This is called an Interest Rate Reduction Loan; the veteran can secure a lower interest rate without any credit checks, appraisal, and income or asset verification and can roll the costs of the transaction into the loan so there are no out of pocket costs.
