    VA Home Loans: Helping Heroes Find a Home

    Today, on Veterans Day, we honor those who have served our country and thank them for their continued dedication to our nation. In the United States, there are many valuable benefits available to Veterans, including VA home loans. For over 75 years, VA home loans have provided millions of Veterans and their families the opportunity to purchase their own homes.

    As we consider the full impact of VA home loans, it’s important to both understand these great options for Veterans and to share them with those we know who may be able to benefit most. For a variety of different reasons, many Veterans don’t use their VA home loan options, so being knowledgeable about what’s available and how they work may be a game-changer for many.

    Facts about 2019 VA Home Loans (most current data):

    • 624,546 home loans were guaranteed by the Veterans Administration.
    • 306,879 VA home loans were made without a down payment.
    • 2,055 grants totaling $118 million were provided to help seriously disabled Veterans purchase, modify, or construct a home to meet their needs.

    VA Home Loans Often Offer:

    • No down payment options as long as the sales price isn’t higher than the home’s appraised value.
    • Better terms and interest rates than loans from other lenders.
    • Fewer closing costs, which may be paid by the seller.

    Bottom Line

    The best thing you can do today to celebrate Veterans Day is to share this information with those who can potentially benefit from these loan options. For more information, contact a local real estate professional who can assist you in the process. Thank you for your service.

    Testimonials

    We have bought many houses and so many properties over the years. This is our first investment property and we work with Jared for probably four years to find the right property. I have to say this was the finest real estate experience we have ever . We had some negative experiences with a couple of other agents, Jared went above and beyond the call of duty, And we will certainly use him for all of our real estate agent future.”
