home buying: I will use my VA benefit why do I have to talk with a mortgage person? - 03/22/13 07:46 AM
I’m going to use my VA benefit, why do I have to talk to a mortgage person?
 
This is one of the most asked questions here in the Fayetteville/Ft Bragg area so I thought I would help explain the process.
