Understanding VA Loans
One of the most popular and enduring programs of the GI Bill is the VA Home Loan program. This one-of-a-kind mortgage program helps veterans, active duty military members, and their families purchase or refinance their homes without needing a downpayment or excellent credit history.
Today, there are more than 22 million veterans and active duty personnel who may qualify for a VA Loan to purchase a home. If you’re a qualified US Veteran ready to explore the VA home loan process, you’ve come to the right place.
In order to obtain a VA home loan, you must first get a VA Home Loan Certificate of Eligibility (COE). Veterans, active duty personnel, guard and reserve members and military spouses may qualify for this certificate.
The largest class of eligible borrowers is veterans. Veteran are required to have an honorable discharge and must have served at least 181 days during peacetime or 90 days of service during wartime to be eligible for a VA home loan. Your HomeVantage Mortgage Banker can help you electronically obtain your VA Home Loan Certificate of Eligibility.
