Frequently Asked Questions

What is a VA Home Loan?

VA guaranteed loans are made by private lenders, such as banks, savings & loans, or mortgage companies to eligible veterans for the purchase of a home which must be for their own personal occupancy. The guaranty means the lender is protected against loss if you or a later owner fail to repay the loan. The guaranty replaces the protection the lender normally receives by requiring a down payment.

What Types of VA Loans Are Available?

Whether you are looking for a first mortgage, adding a second mortgage or trying to refinance an existing mortgage, it is helpful to understand more about the general loan classifications and types of VA loans available to you. Mortgage loans are categorized as either fixed rate mortgages (FRM), adjustable rate mortgages (ARM) or some combination (hybrid) of the two.

Can I Refinance a VA Loan?

Some worry that refinancing takes too much time and money, but fortunately the process is simple. Refinancing is simply the process of paying of your existing loan with a new one. Your new loan could be for a better interest rate, a shorter/longer term, or a different amount. In fact, your new loan could be an entirely different type. For example, instead of an adjustable-rate mortgage you could opt for a fixed-rate mortgage.

How VA Home Loans Work

As the home market continues to fluctuate, it may be the perfect time to buy with the VA Home loan. If you’re an active-duty service member or vet, there’s a good chance you qualify.

You don’t want to miss out on this 0% down payment home loan to move into your family’s dream home.

However, VA Loans are not the same conventional loans, FHA loans or other home financing options. They have unique service qualifications, eligibility, and benefits that no other loan has.

That’s because the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) guarantees them and places regulations in so you can enjoy your home without default or financial obstacles.

Whether this is your first time buying a primary residence or you’re going at it again, you’ll need to freshen up on how VA Home Loans work.
