If you are or have been in the military (including the Reserves or National Guard), you may meet the VA mortgage Eligibility. The Department of Veterans Affairs, commonly referred to as the VA, has made home ownership easier for veterans (and in some cases their surviving spouses) through its loan guarantee program.
If you qualify under the guidelines, you can buy a home with little or no down payment and often at a lower interest rate than conventional fixed-rate mortgages.
While the VA does not actually lend the money, it assumes some of the risk for the loan. To partially offset this, they charge a "funding fee," which can be paid in cash at closing or can be financed over the life of the loan.
In addition, VA home loans are assumable under certain conditions, which means if you decide to sell your property, the buyer may take over your mortgage with the same interest rate and payments -- a good selling point.
The buyer who assumes the loan does not have to be a veteran. The VA loan often is a very cost-effective alternative for veterans or current military personnel.
Their are limits on the amount you can finance. But there is greater flexibility for the payment of closing costs: the seller is allowed to pay all discount points and other closing costs.
