Who Are VA Loans Best For?

VA loans are an excellent mortgage option for qualified veterans, service members and their spouses.

VA loans are a cost-effective option because there s no down payment requirement in most cases and they often come with lower interest rates. Because of their more lenient requirements, VA loans are also great for people who have had past credit problems or have a high debt-to income ratio.

How Do VA Loans Work?

VA loans are backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which means they pose less of a risk to lenders. Because of this, they come with more favorable terms for borrowers and are easier to qualify for.

VA loans come with fixed or adjustable interest rates, plus a range of loan terms.

How Do I Qualify For A VA Loan?

  • A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to show that you re an eligible active duty service member, veteran or surviving spouse
  • Minimum FICO® Score of 62
  • Debt-to income ratio (DTI) of no more than 60%
  • Payment of a funding fee charged by the VA, which may be rolled into your loan. Some borrowers may be able to avoid paying this fee.

Take the first step toward the right mortgage.
