100% Financing


VA mortgages offer one of the only no money down home financing options available in the marketplace. This is a huge advantage to qualifying veterans, military personnel, and their families, who can become homeowners without waiting many years or depleting their savings.

Low Mortgage Rates

The VA Renovation Loan makes it possible to finance both the purchase or refinance of a home and the cost of repairs or updates in one low rate, first mortgage loan. This can offer considerable savings when compared to a higher rate second mortgage, using other types of credit such as credit cards, or a home equity line of credit with a variable interest rate that could increase over time.
