What is a VA home loan?

A VA home loan has a portion of the loan balance guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Veterans who qualify may find homeownership more accessible through VA-backed loans than other financing programs.

With no down payment, flexible income and lenient credit requirements, the VA home loan is a great tool to help our military members find a place to call home.

What are the VA home loan requirements?

If you served in the Armed Forces, you must meet one of the following to qualify:

  • Certificate of Eligibility (COE) will be required to determine eligibility and VA funding fee
    • For service members: You meet the minimum active-duty service requirement if you’ve served for at least 90 continuous days (without a break in service). For Veterans, National Guard members and Reserve members: You meet the minimum active duty service requirement depending on when you served.
