VA Loans in Arizona

Arizona VA Loan

The VA (Veteran’s Administration) loan program was created by a special Act of Congress all the way back in 1944 to help ensure that military personnel returning from the service in World War II could afford to purchase their own home.

The VA loan still exists today. The VA does not issue loans itself, instead it provides a guarantee to lenders that it will pay off  about a quarter of any home loan taken out by veteran should they default.

Who is Eligible for a VA Loan?

In order to be eligible for a VA loan a borrower must be a currently serving member of the US armed forces (including the Reserves and the National Guard) or a veteran of such. There are also some cases in which the widow or widower of an armed forces member may be eligible for a VA loan after their death. This usually only applies if that spouse was killed in the line of duty though.

What Types of VA Loan are Available?

VA loans are most commonly used to buy buying or build a basic single family home. There are instances though when a VA loan can be used to refinance a current home to cut mortgage payments or to make certain home improvements. A VA loan specialist is the best person prospective buyers can discuss the specific type of loan for their circumstances, as they have experience with all the different ways a VA loan can be put to use.

What are the Benefits of a VA Loan?

A VA loan allows a borrower to purchase a home with no down payment so that is, in many people’s eyes the most significant benefit of taking out such a loan. There are however a number of other significant benefits for those who qualify for a VA loan. These include:

Interest rates that are usually considerably lower than those attached to conventional mortgage products.

  • A less stringent underwriting policy in regards to the personal financial history of the prospective borrower.
  • There is no pre payment penalty.
  • There are flexible refinancing terms available in many cases.

What are the Basics Qualifications for VA Loan Applicants?

The most important of course is that the borrowers have the military record to support their application. This usually includes the submission of a Certificate of Eligibility but this is a document that the VA will help the borrower obtain. They will also have to provide income documentation but there is no real standard for an income requirement to obtain a VA loan.
