VA Home Loan

VA Loans play an important role in putting our brave military-serving citizens and their families into a home of their own.

What is a VA Home Loan?

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, lenders often require scores of at least 620. A few lenders will approve loans with credit scores as low as 580 in some cases. And a borrower must be able to afford a home. The VA takes a real-life view of affordability by estimating the ability to pay the home loan after accounting for other monthly expenses.
