What are VA Loans?
The “Veterans Affairs” loans, abbreviated as VA loans, derives its name from the United States Government Office of Veteran Affairs. Contrary to popular belief that the department offers financial services, they do not. They do, however, endorse these VA loans while simultaneously standardizing the prerequisites of agreement which are then in turn provided by financial institutions. This loan, which offers plenty of benefits, is exclusive to military personnel and their spouses.
VA Loan Purchase Qualifier
This no-down-payment loan option was created especially for qualified veterans, service members and their spouses.
VA loans are backed, or guaranteed, by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
There are different loan types with fixed or adjustable interest rates, and a range of loan terms.
What are the advantages of a VA Loan?
VA Loans differ from traditional loans with the following benefits that are offered upon qualification:
-They are endorsed by a government office.
-To avoid any defaults on loan payment, the VA Office assists borrowers.
-There are no early settlement penalties if you choose to close the mortgage pre-term.
-Closing costs are low enough for the seller to cover it.
-The entire value of the property can be financed with a VA Loan.
-No down payment is required in most cases unless mandated by the lender.
-Available to existing home owners as well as new buyers too.
-VA loans do not require a Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
Who is eligible for a VA Loan?
In order to qualify for a VA loan, you need to be either an active member of the military, a war veteran, a member of the National Guard or an active duty member. Additionally, this eligibility if further extended to the spouses of these members.
In addition to this prerequisite, a Certificate of Eligibility, also known as a COE, needs to be obtained as well, confirming your eligibility for a VA Loan. This can be obtained from the respective administration office and online through the designated portal. The COE once obtained is submitted to the mortgage lending institution where it is further verified in order to begin the process on the application for a VA loan.
The two above factors are the main requirements in order to qualify for a VA loan; however, the lender may have some requirements of their own. This may include that purchase of the property is for the personal use only, by the eligible and their family. A residual income is another factor commonly required. This refers to having a saving left over after all expenses are deducted, at the month end. With all eligibility factors met, the credit score requirements of the mortgage issuing institution would have to be satisfactory in order for the VA loan to be approved and processed.
