Unlock the Benefits of Your Service with Expert VA Loan Guidance

VA Loans

I keep hearing that VA loans are “a pain”, “problematic”, or “slow”. The way I see it, they are just more detailed, there a few more boxes to check, and we enter the process with properly managed expectations. Besides, you served your country, so you deserve the benefits of a VA loan! The benefits are outstanding. Besides low interest rates, there is no downpayment required, and with a large turnover of military personnel in the FNSB, there are many assumable VA loans at lower rates!

I am happy to walk you through the process of applying, finding a lender, and then, shopping for homes. Once we get going, I will provide you with on going market updates, scanning for houses that meet your criteria, and a summary of associated closing costs so there are no surprises at the end!

Understanding VA Loan Eligibility

The first step is understanding your eligibility for a VA loan. This involves reviewing your service history and ensuring you meet the requirements set by the Department of Veterans Affairs. I will assist you in gathering the necessary proof of service, such as your Certificate of Eligibility (COE), which is crucial for moving forward.


Pre-Approval Process

Pre-approval is a key step in the VA loan process, as it gives you a clear idea of your budget and shows sellers that you're a serious and qualified buyer. We'll work together to gather financial documents such as income statements, credit reports, and employment verification, ensuring your application is robust and ready for lender review.


Property Search and Making an Offer

Once pre-approved, the exciting part begins – finding your ideal home. I'll provide listings that meet your criteria and VA loan requirements, such as minimum property standards. When you're ready to make an offer, I'll guide you through creating a competitive bid that aligns with VA guidelines.


VA Appraisal and Loan Closing

The VA appraisal is a unique element of your VA loan, ensuring the property meets the VA's standards. I'll help coordinate this process and work with you to address any issues that may arise from the appraisal. Finally, leading up to closing, I'll ensure all documentation is in order and that you understand each aspect of the closing process, from final inspections to signing the paperwork.
