How Do You Qualify for a VA Loan?

The guidelines to qualify for a VA loan are straightforward. The VA has some basic requirements parameters in place that must be met in order for you to qualify for a VA loan. If you do not meet these requirements, do not let it discourage you from applying for a conventional or FHA loan. We are a direct lender and have flexible home loan programs that suit a variety of borrowers. Below are the requirements to be approved for a VA loan:

Any active duty military personnel or veterans who have served either:

  1. * 90 days of active duty service during wartime
  2. * 180 days of active duty service during peacetime
  3. * 6 years of service in the National Guard or Reserves

Spouses of those who have died in either the line of duty or as a result of their service are also eligible for VA loans.

What Are Some of the Advantages of VA Home Loans?

There are a number of reasons that make VA loans better than all other home loan programs in the mortgage marketplace. A few of the most significant benefits of VA loans are:

  • 100% Financing
    Again, not all veterans will be eligible for 100% financing, but those that do can buy a home without a down payment. Also, for veterans who already have a VA home loan, may be able to cash out 100% of their home equity. This is worth noting considering the maximum LTV on other cash out loans is only 85%.
  • No PMI Required
    Not having to pay for PMI (private mortgage insurance) can save you a lot of money. This is a huge bonus that VA loans provide since mortgage insurance can be costly (some mortgage programs such as FHA loans require upfront mortgage insurance and monthly mortgage insurance to be paid).
  • Easy to Qualify
    There is no minimum credit score requirement on VA loans. A lot of times veterans can get approved for a VA loan who would not be able to obtain a loan through the FHA or a conventional mortgage.

Which VA Home Loan Programs Are Available in Colorado?

We offer financing for every VA loan program that exists. This includes first time home buyer loans (which are available to anyone buying a home for the very first time, or that has not had a VA loan in 3 years). We also have very competitive loan terms and interest rates for the VA IRRRL and the VA cash out refinance loan programs.

  • VA First Time Home Buyer Loans
    You may be able to buy a home without having to place any money down. Not all Veterans will qualify for 100% financing, but those that do can buy a home with no down payment. Like other loans, there are some basic requirements such as having some credit established and job history. However, compared to a conventional loan, VA loans are easier to qualify. The best way to find out what you specifically will qualify for is to get pre-approved. We can assist you in determining how much you can borrow, what LTV you qualify for, and what your payment will be based on your desired loan amount.
  • VA Cash Out Refinance
    VA loans offer the best cash out refinance program. There is no other cash out refinance loan that allows 100% financing. The VA cash out refinance also is a low fee, low fee, and easy to process loan program.
  • VA IRRRL Program
    The quick and smooth process of a IRRRL (interest rate reduction refinance loan) allows you to lower your monthly payments without any headache. Also called the “VA streamline refinance”, the IRRRL can be processed often in as little as 1-2 weeks. All you have to do is get prequalified for a VA loan by calling us or submitting your information on our contact form. We will get a loan approval if you qualify and usually there is very little further documentation that you need to provide us with. The VA IRRRL does not require an appraisal, income documentation, or a credit check. Contact us today to receive more information and a rate quote.
