Low interest rates are very important, of course, but there are other benefits to having a VA loan. For example, VA loans are assumable. The only requirement is the person assuming the loan qualifies for the loan.

Another benefit is that the VA limits the amount of closing costs you have to pay on a loan. That means you’ll never be required to pay more than what is considered a fair price. Plus, the VA lets you prepay your loan without having to pay a penalty.

Be aware, though, that even though you are eligible to apply for a VA loan, the lender is not required to automatically approve your loan. You have to qualify for the loan, just like you would with any other mortgage. There are some things to know, however, which can help you with the qualification process.

You’ll need to have a good credit score. The VA might be more lenient than other lenders when it comes to credit scores, but it still needs to be good. Check your credit report just to be sure it doesn’t have any erroneous information. Also, the VA looks closely at the past 12 months, so make sure you’re making all of your payments on time. And don’t make major purchase that could impact your credit. Save them for after your loan is approved.

The VA has minimum requirements for loan approval, which depend on your family size and your location. They just want to be sure that you can pay your mortgage – and have enough money left over to pay your other bills.

Finally, the VA prefers that you have 2 years of consecutive employment. In some cases, they will waive that requirement. Just be aware that you’ll need to provide documentation and support as to why you don’t have 2 years of steady employment.
