Information on loans for Veterans of the United States Military

Filed in Home Comments Off

Created in 1944, under the umbrella of the Original GI Bill, VA backed home loans have helped 20 million veterans and active duty service members secure mortgages. The best housing loan available, benefits of the program include no money down, private mortgage not required, interest rates lower than traditional loans, no established credit minimum and refinancing options. For active duty personnel and veterans interested in becoming homeowners there is no better financing option than the VA backed housing loan.

A third party organization sponsored by The Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Home Loan Centers is dedicated to finding veterans and active duty military affordable housing options, and making the American dream of homeownership a reality. Military homeowners upside-down on their mortgages, needing a short sale are provided services by VA Home Loan Centers free of cost.
