What You Need to Know about VA Home Loans

Make your VA and military benefits work for you:

  • With our no down payment option, you can finance 100% of the purchase price of your home with a VA loan. 
  • The VA has specific qualification requirements for a VA-backed home loan. Talk to a Home Loan Expert who is ready to answer any questions about your qualifications or the process.
  • No mortgage insurance costs - even if you don't make a down payment of 20%. VA borrowers do not pay mortgage insurance, keeping your total costs lower. 
  • If you receive a Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), you can use your allowance to pay for some or all of your monthly payment.
  • We are deeply committed to helping more active-duty military and veterans finance homes, so we offer flexible credit standards.

Choose from low-cost VA loan options to put a mortgage within reach!

  • The VA home loan program is available to qualified borrowers who are first-time buyers, repeat buyers or those planning to refinance.
  • No pre-payment penalty - make extra payments if or when it works for you to pay off your loan faster!
  • Fixed or adjustable interest rates. VA loans offer fixed or adjustable rates as good as and sometimes better than conventional loans. With a fixed rate, your monthly payment (principal + interest) will not fluctuate. That means it is easier for you to budget your monthly payment. With an adjustable rate, you can take advantage of a low rate for a fixed amount of time. This is especially beneficial if you are planning to be in your home for fewer than seven years.
