VA Loans Questions & Answers

VA Loan Eligibility

Who is eligible?

Eligibility is primarily for veterans, active-duty service members, National Guard members, and some surviving spouses.

To qualify, you typically need to have served 90 consecutive days of active service during wartime, 181 days during peacetime, or have more than 6 years of service in the National Guard or Reserves.

Benefits of VA Loans

What are the benefits?

VA loans offer several compelling benefits, including no down payment, no private mortgage insurance (PMI), competitive interest rates, relaxed credit requirements, limits on closing costs, and no penalty fee for early loan repayment.

VA Loan Property Considerations

Can I buy a fixer-upper with a VA loan?

VA loans are typically for move-in-ready homes, but with a VA renovation loan, you can buy and improve a home that needs upgrades or repairs. It's crucial to work with a lender experienced in VA renovation loans for this process. Additionally, there are restrictions on property types; VA loans are mainly for primary residences, and certain property types, like co-ops, may not be eligible.

Role of a VA Lender

What do they do?

A VA lender, approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs, is a private financial institution that handles the loan application process. This includes evaluating your creditworthiness, assisting in obtaining the Certificate of Eligibility (COE), and proving your entitlement to VA loan benefits.

If you're ready to explore VA financing options, My Grand Realty can connect you with a trusted VA lender.
