Here are the different VA Loan types:

VA Home Purchases
A great option for veterans who are looking to purchase a home as their primary residence.   Plus you don’t have to be a 1st Time Homebuyer to receive the following benefits:

  • No down payment required – as long as the sales price doesn’t exceed the appraised value
  • No private mortgage insurance premium requirement
  • The Seller may pay closing costs


VA Cash-Out Refinance Loans
Can be used to refinance a non-VA Loan into a VA Loan.  Also, VA will guaranty loans up to 100% of your home value.  Homeowners can take cash out of their home equity to:

  • Pay off debt
  • Lower interest rates
  • Reduce monthly payments
  • Make home improvements & more


Minimum requirements are:

  • A 580 and above FICO Credit Score
  • Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from Veterans Affairs
  • Income and Service Requirements


Who qualifies for a VA Loan?
Veterans and active duty service members, including those in the Reserve and National Guard.
