VA Loans Overview
What Is a VA Loan?
A Quick Look at the VA Loan Program
The VA loan is a mortgage loan guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), issued by participating approved lenders. This program is for American veterans, military members currently serving, reservists, and select surviving spouses. The VA itself does not originate loans, but it does set the rules for who may qualify, and it establishes minimum guidelines and requirements for the home loan program. Since the creation of the program, 20 million VA home loans have been insured by the government.

Our Popular Home Loan Program
The VA home loan program offers many advantages, including:
Zero Money Down
Most home loan programs require you to make a small down payment to buy a home. The VA home loan is an exception.
No Mortgage Insurance
Save cash up front and over the lifetime of the loan by not paying for mortgage insurance.
No Prepayment Penalty
There’s no prepayment penalty or early-exit fee if you decide you want to sell your home, or you want to pay off your loan early.
Easier To Qualify For
Compared to other loan programs, VA loan guidelines tend to be more flexible. This is made possible because of the VA loan guaranty.
Lower Closing Costs
The VA limits the closing cost lenders can charge to VA loan applicants, making this home loan considerably more affordable.
Most VA loans are “assumable,” which means you can transfer your VA loan to a future home buyer if that person is also VA-eligible.
The secret’s out. We are team of experts focused on customer service, culture, and communication.
VA Regulations and Funding Fees
While a down payment is not required on VA loans, Veterans are still responsible for a one-time funding fee and closing costs.
See How the Process Works
The VA Funding Fee is a one-time payment that Veterans, service members, or survivors may make when closing on a VA purchase or refinance.
Closing costs may be charged by the lender and may not be included in the loan. Interest rates and closing costs vary from lender to lender.
