This book is meant to help assist them veterans their new lives, and owning a home or acquiring loans for it plays a vital role, especially when starting a family.
Owning Instead of Renting
If you are one of these veterans, instead of resorting to renting or leasing an apartment, the VA Home Loan Program provides a way for veteran home ownership with many key advantages.
Upon being discharged, all veterans receive their DD-214. The Document Department of Defense #214 is a vital document that is the pathway to all veteran benefits. This includes a VA loan that has 100% financing of the appraised value of the home.
The 100% financing on VA mortgages gives a veteran who is using their Certificate of Eligibility a much easier financing tool than conventional loans, which require a 10% to 20% down payment. The Veteran Certificate of Eligibility can be obtained for the veteran by any approved mortgage companies that are capable of doing VA loans.
Several cities with large veteran populations, such as those listed below, are very active in providing the veteran population with hundreds of VA mortgage loans.
- San Diego, CA
- Virginia Beach
- Los Angeles, CA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Military Bases such as Fort Bragg
The 100% VA Loan program must be used as the veteran’s primary residence. And as previously discussed, the Certificate of Eligibility that is provided by an approved lender is the first step in the approval process for the loan.
In our book, “A Real Estate Guide for Veterans,” we give you a step-by-step explanation pertaining to acquiring your Certificate of Eligibility as well as the steps that follow — all the way down to the fun part: Shopping for your home!
