Why aren't more Vetarans buying homes?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Sunset Corridor 930800238

David Waite PC  Yesterday, while doing a walk thru with my buyers, a Veteran and a 1st time buyer:  I thought why are not more people doing this? 

My buyers got a super nice property in an excellent neighborhood for just a screaming deal and they did it with $0 down, $0 closing using a 100% Federal VA loan and we got the seller to pay for all their closing costs.  The only thing my buyers are paying for is their home inspection approx. $335.-$350. depending on the home size.

It is so easy...I would be happy to show you how easy it really is.

I use a great Lender (Tom Fikin @ Oswego Mortgage) who has specialized in VA loans for over 15 years and we have teamed up to get literally 100's of Veterans into their own homes. 

It is definitely a buyer's market and if you have a VA complement why not look at what you could get into for less than $400. out of your pocket and that is not paid until you secure a property.  Nothing out of your pocket until you find that right home!

Ask me more?

A lot of military don't feel they're in a position to buy a home - they're either still active duty and don't think they should "take root," or they're uncertain of their futures once they get out. Also, until the recent housing downturn, veterans got better "deals" by not using the VA benefit - which actually may turn out to be in their favor now (I know it did for us!). I can see a lot more VA deals closing in the next few years!

Incidentally, I've heard that VA loans have the lowest amounts of foreclosures and the highest amounts of successful loan mods (at least where I am). This should make using that certificate of eligibility even more appealing to buyers!

Hi David - For the vets looking to buy in Southern Oregon, many have found it challenging finding a job. With our unemployment rate hovering in the teens, this has been a challenge for so many people in the Rogue Valley, and especially all the returning vets. Pretty sad...
