What is a VA loan? - Veteran Administration (VA) Guaranteed loans are made by private lenders to eligible Veterans for the purchase or refinance of a home.

It's important to know that the VA is not a bank. The VA does not loan the money, fund the loan, or service the loan. What the VA does is guarantee the loan by providing protection to the lender against loss if the Veteran fails to repay the loan.

The VA loan began in 1944 through the original Servicemen's  Readjustment Act also known as the GI Bill of Rights. This program was intended for Veterans and their families to realize the dream of homeownership by offering access to lower cost financing. The VA announced in October 2012 that the Dept. had guaranteed it's 20 millionth home since the program's inception in 1944. At the time of the historic announcement at total of 540,000 homes were guaranteed by VA in 2012. (VA press release Oct. 26. 2012)
