For our Veterans & Active-Duty MilitaryCreated in 1944 to help give back to those who sacrificed so much for our country, the VA loan program was part of the original GI Bill of Rights. In many ways, it helped reshape America.
The VA mortgage is fully backed by the US government and is one of the most attractive and flexible mortgages available to those who qualify. It offers up to 100% financing for homebuyers with sufficient entitlement to qualify and does not require monthly private mortgage insurance, which could save you hundreds of dollars a year. It also has more lenient credit and qualifying criteria when compared to a conventional mortgage.
While there are many pros that come with the VA loan, they do require that a fee be added to the loan amount. It is called the VA Funding Fee and is a percentage of the overall loan amount. The amount can vary depending on a few factors, so it is important that homebuyers understand how it works and what they can expect to pay. Read all about the VA Funding Fee here.
