How to Qualify for Veterans Affairs Loans

va loans

Veterans, active military members, surviving spouses, and others may qualify for Veterans Affairs (VA) loans when purchasing homes. The Department of Veterans Affairs backs VA loans, and applicants may receive several benefits through the arrangement. Those who qualify for a VA loan may not need to invest in costly mortgage insurance or maintain as high a credit score as a conventional borrower.

Individuals who receive a VA loan are not required to provide a down payment. As long as the applicant meets the terms of the VA loan, it remains one of the most economical financing arrangements available in the real estate market today.

Do You Qualify for a VA Loan?

Here are some basic requirements to qualify for a VA loan:

Use VA Loans for More

In addition to purchasing a home or condominium in an approved location, veterans can use the loan program to build new homes, improve preexisting homes with energy-efficient renovations, or purchase pre-built homes.

You may qualify for a VA loan if you currently hold a conventional mortgage as well. To take advantage of veteran benefits, refinance your home under the VA loan program, use your equity to improve your home or pay down debt, or participate in an interest rate reduction refinance loan to secure the lowest mortgage rates.

If you have questions about your eligibility, you can speak with a representative at the Department of Veterans Affairs or to a lender that specializes in VA loans.
