First of all - Thank You.
We are very proud to be an approved VA Lender (# 640385-00-00) and have served many of our US Veterans by lending millions of dollars to provide Veterans money to purchase a home or refinance their current mortgage, saving thousands of dollars.
We take extra special care to ensure the mortgage process is as painless as possible for our Veterans. There are unfortunately still many companies who claim to help our Nations Veterans, and end up taking advantage of them through higher rates, exorbitant fees, and poor service.
Some Information about VA Home Loans:
VA guaranteed loans are made by lenders and guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to eligible veterans for the purchase of a home. The guaranty means the lender is protected against loss if you fail to repay the loan. In most cases, no down payment is required on a VA guaranteed loan and the borrower usually receives a lower interest rate than is ordinarily available with other loans.
Other benefits of a VA loan include:
- No Funding Fee if a Veteran is deemed 10% Disabled or greater by the VA
- Negotiable interest rate.
- Closing costs comparable – and sometimes lower - than other financing types.
- No private mortgage insurance requirement.
- Right to prepay loan without penalties
- Mortgage can be taken over (or “assumed”) by the buyer when a home is sold.
- Counselling and assistance available to veteran borrowers having financial difficulty or facing default on their loan.
Although mortgage insurance is not required, the VA charges a funding fee to issue a guarantee to a lender against borrower default on a mortgage. The fee may be paid in cash by the buyer or seller, or it may be financed in the loan amount.
A VA loan can be used to buy a home, build a home and even improve a home with energy-saving features such as solar or heating/cooling systems, water heaters, insulation, weather-stripping/ caulking, storm windows/doors or other energy efficient improvements approved by the lender and VA.
Veterans can apply for a VA loan with any mortgage lender that participates in the VA home loan program. A Certificate of Eligibility from the VA must be presented to the lender to qualify for the loan, or we can obtain for you. We will need a copy of your DD-214.
