That’s because VA loans offer you very competitive rates, along with many other advantages that make it the best loan choice for veterans.

If you want to apply for a VA loan, you’ll need to have a certificate of eligibility, which means you’re eligible to apply for the loan. It doesn’t mean the lender will automatically qualify you, because you’ll still have to qualify. But it’s the first step of the process.

With a VA loan you’ll be able to purchase or build a home, renovate or improve your existing home, or make substantial energy upgrades to your home if you choose. But here’s what many veterans are doing; they’re taking their VA loan to refinance their existing VA loan to a much lower rate, which will save them a substantial amount of money each month.

Competitive interest rates are just one advantage of a VA loan. Another is that VA loans are assumable, which will become an advantage when it’s time to sell your home. The new buyer will still have to qualify, though. Plus, the VA limits the amount of closing costs that you will have to pay. And you can prepay your loan at any time without a penalty.

Here’s something else unique to the VA loan – if you find yourself having trouble making your mortgage payment, call the VA. They’ll help you with advice and information, along with understanding – to get you through the rough times you could be having.

If you have your certificate of eligibility and are ready to apply for your VA loan, be sure to make all payments on time. That’s because the VA looks closely at the previous 12 months on your credit report. Here’s another bit of advice – try to avoid making any major credit purchases until after your loan is approved, as doing so can negatively impact your credit score. Be aware that the VA is looking for a “good” credit score. It doesn’t have to be “great,” but good is required.

The VA would also prefer to see 2 years of consecutive employment. If you don’t have 2 years, prepare to address this with them. There are also minimum income requirements that are based on your family size and location. These vary with each lender. They simply want to be assured that you’ll not only be able to make your monthly mortgage payment, but your other expenses as well.
