Why a VA Loan?
Veterans and service members can take advantage of VA loan benefits, even if they’ve used them before. Get into a house with a $0 down payment and then refinance for more than the home’s value. This unique loan benefit program is designed to help service members have the best opportunity to own a home.

Questions We Get About VA Loans
If you are a member of the armed services, national guard, reservist, or a veteran you most likely qualify for a VA loan. If you’re serving on active duty then you are generally eligible after a minimum length of service, currently 90 continuous days. If you are national guard or reservist without a minimal eligible tour of active duty you generally need 6 years of creditable service. After meeting these requirements you will have to get your certificate of eligibility, which you can do on the Department of Veterans Affairs website.
A VA mortgage is one of the few loans that you can get with no down payment. But, the more you put down the lower your funding fee. Generally, the lowest fees go to those putting at least 10% down, have served a minimal amount of time on active duty, and haven’t previously used their eligibility.
No down payment. No monthly mortgage insurance, like an FHA loan. Limitations on closing costs and the lowest average rates of any loan programs.
