What is a Veteran Home Loan?

If you have served our country in the military than there is a mortgage loan that will help you buy a house on the most favorable terms.
A VA loan is one of the most useful benefits for veterans, service members, and eligible surviving spouses.

A veteran loan is backed by a Veterans Administration and is established by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

With this military home loan, you can get a house with as little as zero down payment.

To qualify for a VA loan, a borrower must present a certificate of eligibility to the lender. The certificate establishes the record of military service.

VA Loan Fees

In order to keep VA loan system working there is a funding fee that you need to pay. The funding fee is a percent of the loan value. Reserves and National Guard need to pay 2.4% on 0% down payment and regular military officers – 2.15%.

If you are accessing a VA loan for the second time, you would need to pay a funding fee of 3.3%. A funding fee is waived for veterans who receive VA compensation for disabilities related to their service, surviving spouses who died and veterans who will receive compensation for service-related disabilities.

How to Get a VA Home Loan

  1. First of all, you need to get prequalified to estimate what house you can afford based on your income and other financial factors.
  2. Another major step is getting pre-approved. If you are, then you will receive a pre-approval letter that will demonstrate that you are a serious buyer.
  3. When you find a loan approved home you need to put your offer. If you need a reliable agent in Los Angeles, California, we will gladly assist you and help you find the house that you need.
  4. Once you have a contract, the lender will order a VA appraisal of the property. Underwriters will evaluate your income and other financial documents.
