VA loans offer very attractive benefits for our veterans and active military members and eligible spouses. Whether clients are first-time buyers or re-using VA benefits, this flexible, low-cost loan can accommodate a variety of situations. Highlights include:
- 100% financing on purchases up to VA county loan limits*
- No monthly mortgage insurance required**
- Flexible credit with FICO as low as 580***
- Low interest rate loans
- Loan amount to $2 million****
Many veterans don’t know that the VA allows multiple uses of the benefit. For example, if the borrower had a VA loan and paid off that loan or sold the home, they could then buy again using a VA loan. Alternately, if the veteran currently has a VA loan but has remaining entitlement to apply toward another home purchase, the veteran-borrower could have two mortgages with VA loans.
A good strategy would be to ask all your clients if they have served in the military. If they have, I can evaluate whether they meet the VA’s qualifying criteria. I can then help your clients understand their eligibility, figure how much they could qualify for and secure their Certificate of Eligibility.
