VA Loans vs. Other Loans
It's true that VA loans are an easy way for veterans to save money when you are financing a home loan. When compared to conventional loans, VA loans offer excellent loan rates and require no monthly mortgage insurance. It is also much easier to qualify for VA loan than a conventional loan. All Veterans who are looking to purchase a home should exercise their VA benefits with a VA Loan..
Veteran Loans require zero money down when purchasing a home and are currently guaranteed for loan amounts up to $417,000. And if you have bad credit, VA loans can actually save you money by offering you a lower loan rate in comparison with conventional lending instruments.
Interest Rate Choices
Veterans now have their choice of either an Adjustable rate or a Fixed rate VA mortgage. Fixed rate loans allow you to borrow a set amount of money over a set time period at a single interest rate. Adjustable rate mortgages, or ARM's, allow the borrower to adjust their interest rates if it is more favorable to do so after a given time period (usually 3 years).
