What is a VA Guaranteed Home Loan?
In 1944, the U.S. government produced a military loan guaranty program to help returning service members purchase homes. The result was the VA guaranteed loan, a mortgage loan that is issued by approved lenders (banks, mortgage companies, etc.) to eligible veterans and requires no down payment.
Currently, the VA home loan program is more important than ever to members who have served in the military. Lenders nationwide increased their lending requirements due to the housing market collapse and this increased the importance of the VA home loan program to military borrowers. Many veterans and active service men find it difficult to meet the required credit standards and down payment requirements, but the VA guaranteed home loan can help them.
