Benefits of a VA Purchase Loan

You’ve served and now it's your chance to experience the freedom of homeownership. With a VA purchase loan, you'll get to take advantage of several benefits, including:

  • No down payment required: While most mortgages require a minimum of 20% down payment, with a VA loan, you won't have any down payment.
  • No mortgage insurance costs: Most mortgages would require additional insurance if you were putting down less than 20%, VA loans are government-backed, which helps you avoid paying PMI.
  • More flexible credit and income requirements: Compared to conventional mortgages, VA loans are more accessible to those with less-than-perfect credit scores or lower income levels.
  • Low fixed rates: VA loans offer some of the lowest interest rates on the market, making it possible to save each month.

 

Who Qualifies for a VA Home Purchase Loan?

If you're an active military member or veteran, you may qualify for a VA home purchase loan. Eligibility depends on a few different factors, such as the length of time you've served in active duty service. Spouses of a military service member who died in the line of duty or after suffering from a service-related disability are also eligible for this loan.

Along with military-related qualifications, other factors, like your debt-to-income ratio, will be taken into consideration when determining how much you can borrow.
