About VA Loans
A VA loan is issued by a private lender and insured by the Department of Veterans Affairs. It’s a valuable benefit — offering a mortgage with a lower-than-most interest rate that usually requires no down payment — for qualified U.S. veterans, active-duty military personnel and certain surviving spouses.
Although the VA has no minimum credit score requirement, most wholesalers require scores of at least 620. A few lenders will approve loans with credit scores as low as 580 in some cases. The VA takes a real-life view of affordability by estimating the ability to pay the home loan after accounting for other monthly expenses.
How do I qualify?
The Department of Veterans Affairs doesn’t issue the home loans; brokers & wholesalers do. But, the VA insures a portion of the loan in case of default. While a VA home loan qualifying requirements are much more relaxed than that of a conventional loan, you’ll still needs to have a decent credit score and sufficient income.
Some other eligibility requirements include...
- The home must be your primary residence.
- You must have a valid certificate of eligibility from the VA.
- A VA approved lender; Not endorsed or sponsored by the Dept. of Veterans Affairs or any government agency.
