VA Mortgage

What is a VA Mortgage?

A VA mortgage is a home loan backed and guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

The Veterans Affairs created this loan program to help Service-members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners.

The VA built some amazing features into VA loans that make home ownership much more affordable.

One of the best features is that there is no down payment for a purchase made with a VA loan. If that wasn’t great enough, how about this?

There is no monthly private mortgage insurance (PMI) payments to be made like other loans.
