In 1944, Congress created the VA Loan program to help returning war veterans achieve the dream of home ownership. Since then, the Department of Veterans Affairs has helped more than 18 million military members purchase homes.
VA loan programs are available to eligible veterans for the purchase of a home. VA loans are particularly beneficial to those veterans that do not have much cash available as the VA loan has a $0 down payment option. VA guidelines generally allow higher debt ratios compared to other loan programs, and it’s considered easier to qualify for.
