Far and away, the most significant benefit of a VA loan
is the borrower's ability to purchase with no money down.
Apart from the government's UDSA's Rural Development home
loan and Fannie Mae's Home Path, it's all but impossible
to find a lending option today that provides borrowers
with 100 percent financing.
VA loans also come with less stringent underwriting standards and requirements than conventional loans. In fact, about 80 percent of VA borrowers could not have qualified for a conventional loan. These loans also come with no private mortgage insurance (PMI), a monthly expense that conventional borrowers are required to pay unless they put down at least 20 percent of the loan amount.
Down payment as low as 0%.
Competitive interest rates that are routinely lower than conventional rates
No prepayment penalties
Higher allowable debt-to-income ratios than for many other loans
Streamlined refinancing loans that require no additional underwriting
"I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the job everyone did at your company. I have refinanced several times in the past and usually pick the company that has the lowest rates. Of course I did the same when I chose your company. However, this time I received great service to go with the low rate."
"I just wanted to thank you for constantly following up with me. The last time I refinanced it seemed as if I always had to follow up with the mortgage company. Thanks for staying on top of everything and keeping things moving forward."
"Your company was so much more professional than the last mortgage company I used. Every question I asked was answered honestly and accurately. I would recommend you to anyone."
