Veterans have put their lives on the line to defend you and I and they deserve our respect. We would not be who we are today nor have the freedoms we have without them.
One of the ways we give veterans thanks for their service is the right to buy a house with a loan backed by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
I have been working with some veterans recently trying to get them into houses but have been amazed and stunned how many homes are listed as not accepting a VA loan. Loans that would easily qualify under the guidelines set forth by the VA.
The problem? Common misconceptions on the process and requirements of a VA loan. Many agents cringe when they think of getting an offer from a veteran because they think the loan is going to cost the seller thousands of dollars, the appraisal will come in low, too many repairs will be needed and the process will take twice as long.
All of these are total misconceptions of a VA loan. This is the first of a series of videos in which I will discuss the process, and try to dispel those false rumors.
