3 Things They Never Taught You About the VA Home Loan in Boot Camp

VA Home Loans: What They Didn't Teach You in Boot Camp

Unlocking the Benefits of VA Home Loans: Essential Insights for Veterans

The journey from military service to homeownership is filled with opportunities, particularly the VA home loan benefits. But, are you fully aware of what your VA home loan can do for you? Many veterans, unfortunately, miss out on key aspects of these loans, simply because they weren't covered in boot camp. Here's a closer look at three crucial things about VA home loans that you might not know.

1. Reusing Your VA Home Loan Benefit: A Repeated Advantage

Contrary to popular belief, VA home loans aren't a one-time benefit. Veterans can actually use their VA home loan multiple times throughout their lives. The catch? It's all about your remaining entitlement, which is detailed in your Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs. This entitlement indicates the amount the VA will guarantee on your loan. Keep in mind, if you're still paying off an existing VA loan, your remaining entitlement could be affected.

2. Understanding VA Home Loan Funding Fees

While VA home loans typically don't require a down payment, they do come with funding fees. These fees are determined by several factors, including your military service, down payment amount, and previous use of the VA loan benefit. Ranging from 0.5% to 3.6% of the loan amount, these fees offset the cost of managing VA loans. If you're a disabled veteran, you might be exempt from these fees. Make sure to verify your eligibility through your Certificate of Eligibility, or reach out to our team for assistance.

3. The Unique VA Appraisal Process

Purchasing a home with a VA loan? Prepare for a VA-specific appraisal. This process is more comprehensive than standard appraisals and includes recommendations for necessary repairs before loan approval. However, don't mistake it for a home inspection, which is a separate, more detailed evaluation. It's also crucial to remember that VA appraisers don't confirm compliance with local building codes – that's on you to verify.

The Bottomline: Embrace Your VA Loan Knowledge

As a veteran, you're entitled to a powerful tool in achieving homeownership: the VA home loan. But, to truly harness its benefits, it's essential to understand its intricacies.
