How do VA home loans work?
A VA home loan is a mortgage loan that’s issued by private lenders and partially back by the federal government. It helps U.S. veterans, active duty service members, and select widowed military spouses to buy a home.
VA home loans have been around since 1944, but they’ve become increasingly popular in recent years and now account for about 8%* of home purchases. This type of loan is often a good option because requirements are less restrictive to qualify for and require little to no down payment.
VA home loans can be a great way into homeownership. They differ in some key ways from traditional home loans, so contact us to find out if a VA home loan is the best way for you to buy that dream home.
