Eligibility requirements

Many people are surprised to find out how broad the eligibility requirements for a VA backed mortgage are readily available. Not only can active military members take advantage of VA guarantees, but members who have served at least six years in the National Guard or reserves are also eligible. If you served 90+ days on active duty during war time you are also eligible of VA financing.  In addition, those who are collecting disability payments as a result of service-related injuries and surviving spouses of deceased military members are also eligible.


Understanding underwriting

Lenders who are willing to accept a VA guarantee will typically focus on only the prior 12 months credit history for the borrower(s). In addition, down payment requirements are far less than other Non-VA programs, VA loans require no down payment at all. In addition,  lenders do not require monthly private mortgage insurance since the loans are backed by the VA. In addition, funding fees and closing costs may be paid by the seller or lender making the cash out of pocket very minimal.
