Why choose a VA loan over conventional loans?
Quite simply, a VA loan allows you to purchase a home with no down payment. With a traditional loan most lenders require between 10 and 20%. In addition, there’s no PMI (private mortgage insurance) because it’s backed by the government. This could save you hundreds of dollars a month, based on how much you want to borrow. With a VA home loan income requirements and credit scores are typically more lenient than conventional loans. Interest rates are often lower than traditional mortgages, too.
Who qualifies for a VA loan?
There are some basic guidelines for who can qualify for a VA loan. If any one of these apply to you then you may be eligible for the COE (Certificate of Eligibility) that’s required to obtain a VA loan:
- Served at least 90 consecutive days of active duty during wartime
- Have at least 6 years of service in the National Guard (or Reserves)
- Served at least 181 days during peacetime
- Are a spouse of a service member who has died either in the line of duty or as a result of a service-related disability
VA loan COEs are available to active members and veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Reserves and National Guard. Complete our no-obligation VA loan questionnaire to see what you can qualify for today!
