Answers To Commonly Asked Questions About VA Home Loans
If you’re currently in the military or you’ve previously served, you may qualify for a Veterans Affair Home Loan. If you’re interested in this type of loan, talk to a mortgage representative about VA Home Loans. Below you’ll discover the answers to commonly asked questions about this type of loan.
Q.) What is the difference between a loan through the VA and a typical home loan?
A.) The Federal Government endorses VA Loans and if you default on your mortgage, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will repay a certain amount of the loan to your lender. With a VA Loan, you won’t have to make a down payment, you may have lower closing costs and you don’t need to purchase mortgage insurance.
Q.) Am I restricted to what type of house I can buy with a VA loan?
A.) With a VA loan, not only can you purchase a single family home, you are eligible to buy a condominium, duplex, manufactured home or a new house. If you already own a home, you can refinance your current home with a VA Loan. If you want to make home improvements or repairs, you can borrow additional money to pay for these upgrades to your home.
Q.) Will I still be eligible for a VA Loan if my credit score isn’t very high?
A.) Even if you don’t have excellent credit, you can still qualify for a VA loan. If your credit score is 620 or higher and you pay your bills when they are due, you’ll most likely qualify for a VA Loan.
Q.) Can I get a VA Loan if I’ve previously been turned down for a loan from a different lending institution?
A.) Since the protocol for a VA Loan has many variables, such as an adjustable interest rate, you may still qualify for a VA Loan. A mortgage consultant who specializes in VA Home Loans can help you get this type of loan even if you’ve previously been denied.
