VA Loan

A VA loan is a no-money-down mortgage option available to veterans, service members, and select military spouses. VA home loans are issued by private lenders and are fully or partially backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

What Is a VA Loan?

Created in 1944 by the U.S. government to help returning service members purchase homes, the U.S. Department for Veterans Affairs has guaranteed more than 24 million VA loans to help veterans, active duty military members, and their families purchase or refinance homes.

VA loans function differently than typical mortgages. The Department of Veterans Affairs does not create loans, but rather backs a portion of each loan against default. This guarantee gives private lenders the confidence to offer $0 down financing plus affordable terms and loan rates.

Va Loan Faqs

How does a VA loan work?

Once applicants are approved, they work with a private lender, such as a bank or mortgage company, to secure their VA loan. Because the U.S. Department for Veterans Affairs guarantees part of the loan against loss, these private lenders can offer better loan terms, such as zero down payment.

Who qualifies for a VA loan?

Veterans, active duty service members, and National Guard and Reserve members may be eligible for VA home loans. Discharged members and spouses of veterans may also qualify. Those applying for a VA loan must fill out a Certificate of Eligibility (COE).

How does one apply for a VA loan?

Start by filling out the COE and choosing your loan type. The rest of the application process varies by the type of loan you apply for.
