The VA loan program offers Veterans and Active Duty Military a great way to purchase or refinance a home. VA is just about the only program still allowing 100% financing. VA loan program not only allows a Zero Down Payment, but also does not have Mortgage Insurance, which is required on Conventional loans with less than 20% down and on FHA loans no matter what the down payment is.
The VA loan process is easy, if you choose the right company and right Loan Officer. I focus on the VA loan program and have over 20 years experience closing VA loans. The first step is to get Prequalified.
It only takes a quick 5 minute phone call so that I can prepare customized loan scenarios based on your goals, qualifications, and payment comfort level. Once you have a solid idea of the price range and type of property you wish to pursue (e.g. Condo or Single Family Home), the next step is to move forward with VA Loan PreApproval. Most sellers will not entertain an offer from a buyer unless they have been PreApproved by a Direct Lender.
Once PreApproved you will be able to confidently make offers on homes, knowing your financing has been taken care of and that you’ll be able to generally close escrow in 30 days or less.
