Here in Kitsap County, Washington, we are fortunate to have a very large military community. With the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Bangor Submarine Base, our area is home to many active-duty families and retired veterans. As a professional realtor, I have had the good fortune and joy of working with many of these hard-working, dedicated patriots and their families (check out my profile for recent testimonials).
Many of my active military or veteran clients use VA loans for their home financing. I purchased my first two homes using VA loans. It can be an excellent financing product to use, requiring very little out-of-pocket expense, and with competitive rates. However, one of the potential difficulties with VA loans can be the appraisal process. It's something that I always take time to educate my Buyers about fully.
