What is a VA Loan?

A VA loan is a mortgage option available to veterans, active-duty service members, and certain members of the National Guard and Reserves. Established by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), these loans offer significant benefits, making homeownership more accessible and affordable for those who have served our country.

Benefits of a VA Loan

  • No Down Payment: One of the most significant advantages of a VA loan is that it often requires no down payment, making it easier for veterans to purchase a home without the need for extensive savings.

  • Competitive Interest Rates: VA loans typically offer lower interest rates compared to conventional loans, which can result in substantial savings over the life of the loan.

  • No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI): Unlike conventional loans, VA loans do not require PMI, which can reduce your monthly mortgage payment.

  • Easier Qualification: VA loans have more flexible credit and income requirements, making it easier for veterans to qualify.

  • Limited Closing Costs: The VA limits the amount veterans can be charged for closing costs, reducing the out-of-pocket expenses required to close on a home.

General Eligibility for a VA Loan

To be eligible for a VA loan, you 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

  • Have more than 6 years of service in the National Guard or Reserves

  • Be the spouse of a service member who has died in the line of duty or as a result of a service-related disability
