What is a VA loan?
The VA loan is one of the most powerful lending programs available and is reserved exclusively for Veterans, Reservists and Active Duty Personnel along with their eligible spouses. Backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the VA home loan program is designed to make homeownership easy and affordable.
This program can be used for the purchase of a primary residence such as a single-family home, loft or condominium. If you do a cash-out refinance on an existing VA or non-VA mortgage, you can use the proceeds for any purpose, including improving a primary residence. The VA loan program offers many exclusive benefits, low closing costs, competitive interest rates and more.
Who is eligible for a VA loan?
To qualify for a VA home loan, an individual must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Served 90 consecutive days of active service during wartime
- Served 181 days of active service during peacetime
- Served more than six years in the National Guard or Reserves
- Be a spouse of a service member who died in the line of duty or as the result of a service-related disability
What are the specific benefits of a VA loan?
One of the greatest benefits of the VA home loan program is that it doesn’t require a down payment, allowing many individuals the opportunity to purchase homes when they normally couldn’t under a traditional mortgage. This loan program also does not require private mortgage insurance. Limited closing costs and gift funds are also acceptable for closing costs. Here are a few more benefits:
- No cash reserve requirements
- A variety of terms, loan types and purposes available
- Reduced costs for disabled veterans
- Seller can pay for closing costs
- Seller pays for any required repairs
- No pre-payment penalty
