VA Loan Overview
The VA program was setup for military in 1944 by the United States government. Veterans would come home and because of the standard movement and relocation find it a challenge to qualify for conventional programs. For this reason the VA established the VA home loan allowing for certain home purchase guidelines to be removed. Through the guarantee of the VA, lenders are willing to provide veterans with the VA program and finance the property at more favorable rates.
There have been millions of veterans and their families that have used the VA loan. The VA program has been proven to be one of the best options for veterans.
Those who have served can now receive better benefits then those who have not. The VA will do 100% financing on purchases which is not available to conventional or FHA home purchasers without additional loans being included.
