(Brentwood, 01/13/2018) – According to the Mortgage Investors Group (MIG), about 80 percent of VA borrowers could not qualify for a conventional home loan. To address the housing needs of veterans and other qualified personnel, MIG assists them in obtaining a VA loan.

Accommodating Eligible Members

VA loans guarantee better financing rates and terms for veterans. In fact, Investopedia states that a VA loan can offer up to 100 percent financing on the value of a home. But veterans must first secure a Certificate of Eligibility before applying for a VA loan.

For veterans and military members seeking expert advice and help, MIG readily provides their services. The Knoxville, TN-based lender assists active military personnel, veterans, and spouses of fallen members.

The company shares, “MIG will first get a Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs for the borrower. This certificate will verify if the veteran has a VA entitlement and can participate in the program. A VA-approved lender can help a borrower obtain the form, or the veteran can request it online.”

Eligible members can then apply for a VA loan with MIG.

Benefits of a VA Loan

VA loans are the perfect way for members of the service to become homeowners. MIG explains, “VA loans are very popular because they do not require a down payment (up to conforming loan limit) and underwriting standards offer more flexibility when qualifying a veteran, compared with conventional mortgages.”

But there are far more advantages to a VA loan than having no down payment, including:

1. Low, competitive interest rates
2. Flexible credit, income, and debt requirements
4. No prepayment penalties
5. Loan is assumable
6. Available to eligible borrowers with a prior bankruptcy or foreclosure
