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.
