What are the first steps in being able to use your VA loan? Most active duty and veterans are eligible to use this great loan program. Hi everyone, this is Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii Life Real Estate. I am here with Stephanie Safholm with Bayview Residental Brokerage. What are the first steps someone should take if they want to buy a home using the VA loan?
Stephanie: This is easy– reach out and contact a loan officer. This process starts with a simple conversation where I get to know your home buying and financial goals and can help you make a plan to purchase a home on your time-frame. I can also give you an idea of what you would be qualified to purchase.
Ready to Buy?
What if a person is ready to buy right now and wants to use the VA loan?
Stephanie: Let’s first start with that initial conversation about your goals, but then we can move quickly and I’ll gather all of the information I need, I’ll pull your credit, you’ll submit documents and if everything looks favorable, I’ll be ready to give you a pre-approval letter so you and your realtor Fawn can start looking for a home.
The VA loan offers unbeatable benefits for military and veterans. For those that qualify, the VA loan program is one of the best. There is no down payment or private mortgage insurance. The VA loan is back by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. If you would like more information on the VA loan, please reach out to us, you can call or text, email and we’d be happy to help.
