What is a VA Mortgage Loan?

A VA mortgage loan (known as a Veterans Administration home loan) is one of the most exclusive benefits for those who have served or are presently serving in the U.S. Military. Based on your Certificate of Eligibility you can use a VA loan to purchase or refinance a home without having to make a down payment. VA loan is backed by the Veterans Administration for veterans, and there is no private mortgage insurance (PMI) requirement. The VA Loan can only be used for your own personal occupancy.

 

VA home loans can be used to:

According to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website

  • Buy a home, a condominium unit in a VA-approved project
  • Build a home
  • Simultaneously purchase and improve a home
  • Improve a home by installing energy-related features or making energy efficient improvements
  • Buy a manufactured home and/or lot
  • To refinance an existing VA-guaranteed or direct loan for the purpose of a lower interest rate
  • To refinance an existing mortgage loan or other indebtedness secured by a lien of record on a residence owned and occupied by the veteran as a home

 

How VA Loans Work

VA loans are designed for active military personnel, veterans, and military families only.

 

If this is your first time applying for a VA loan, you must first meet the VA’s guidelines to be eligible. If you have used your VA benefits in the past, you may be able to use it again.
