VA Home Loan Benefit
NO DOWN PAYMENT REQUIRED
The VA home loan remains one of the only lending programs on the market that offers a zero down payment* mortgage. Most lending programs require at least some form of down payment, with popular amounts ranging from 3.5% to 20%*. For example, a $200,000 home could mean coming up with a down payment ranging from $7,000 up to $40,000!. Borrowers using the VA loan can purchase immediately with no money down, avoiding years of saving up while paying rent to someone else.
NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE INSURANCE
VA loans do not require mortgage insurance, even when the home buyer is putting no money down. As a result, the Veteran not only saves cash upfront but can also save thousands over the lifetime of the loan and give the buyer more purchasing power when shopping for a home.
FLEXIBLE UNDERWRITING GUIDELINES
Qualifying credit factors such as FICO Credit Score, collections, debts and judgments are all considered with common sense underwriting reviews. Not every credit report is indicative of a Veterans true walk in life. At Aligned we work to find a way to make every Veteran a homeowner. Its just common sense. VA loans also allow for a higher debt-to-income ratio than other types of mortgages.
