VA direct and VA-backed Veterans home loans can help Veterans, service members, and their survivors to buy, build, improve, or refinance a home. You’ll still need to have the required credit and income for the loan amount you want to borrow. But a Veterans home loan may offer better terms than a traditional loan from a private bank, mortgage company, or credit union. For example, nearly 90% of VA-backed loans are made with no down payment.
Which VA or VA-backed home loan program may be right for you?
* With a VA direct home loan, the VA serves as your mortgage lender. This means you’ll work directly with the VA to apply for and manage your loan.
* With a VA-backed home loan, VA guarantees (or stands behind) a portion of the loan you get from a private lender. If your VA-backed home loan goes into foreclosure, the guaranty allows the lender to recover some or all of their losses. Since there’s less risk for the lender, they’re more likely to give you the loan under better terms. In fact, nearly 90% of all VA-backed home loans are made without a down payment.
Lenders follow VA standards when making VA-backed home loans. They may also require you to meet additional standards before giving you a loan. These standards may include having a high enough credit score or getting an updated home appraisal.
First, you must have your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) for a VA direct or VA-backed home loan based on your service history and duty status. You should have a copy but if you don't, you can get a new one at https://www.va.gov/housing-assistance/home-loans/how-to-apply/
