VA helps Servicemembers, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission to serve you, we provide a home loan guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain, or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy.
VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms.
Your length of service or service commitment, duty status and character of service determine your eligibility for specific home loan benefits.
Purchase Loans and Cash-Out Refinance:VA-guaranteed loans are available for homes for your occupancy or a spouse and/or dependent (for active duty service members). To be eligible, you must have satisfactory credit, sufficient income to meet the expected monthly obligations, and a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE).
If you are looking for a mortgage with a wide selection of terms and competitive rates, conventional loans may be your answer. These loans are what most people think of when it comes to a traditional home loan. Conventional Home Loans are not part of a government-sponsored program, and are instead fully funded and insured by private lenders and insurers.
BASIC CONVENTIONAL LOAN REQUIREMENTS
Ultimately, lenders individually decide who is and is not approved for a conventional loan. Borrowers should be prepared to supply at least two years of W-2’s, tax statements, bank statements and proof of cash reserves and submit to a credit report.
Clients should have good or better credit – at least a 620 or higher, and a low debt to income ratio.
For most conventional loans, a 20% down payment is required.
