Veterans can apply for a Plano Texas VA home loan with any mortgage lender that participates in the VA home loan program. A Certificate of Eligibility from the VA must be presented to the lender to qualify for the loan. We will assist in collecting that document from the VA for you.
VA guaranteed loans are made by lenders and guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) eligible veterans for the purchase of a home. The guaranty means the lender is protected against loss if you fail to repay the VA home loan. In most cases, no down payment is required on a Plano Texas VA guaranteed loan and the borrower usually receives a lower interest rate than is ordinarily available with other loans.
Benefits of a Plano Texas VA home loan include:
• No Down Payment Required
• Lower interest rate.
• Easier to qualify for with less stringent credit score requirements
• Closing costs are often lower than other financing types.
• No private mortgage insurance requirement.
• Right to prepay loan without penalties
• Mortgage can be taken over (or “assumed”) by the buyer when a home is sold.
• Counseling and assistance available to veteran borrowers having financial difficulty or facing default on their loan.
Although mortgage insurance is not required, the VA charges a funding fee to issue a guarantee to a lender against borrower default on a mortgage. The fee may be paid in cash by the buyer or seller, or it may be financed in the loan amount. This fee is waived if the veteran is disabled, review your DD214 to make sure of our fee requirements.
