The U.S. government started a military loan program back in 1944 to help returning service members be able to buy a home. The loans are backed by the federal government and allow for better loan rates and low-to-no down payment on home purchases. To date, the VA Loan program has helped more than 20 million vets to realize the dream of homeownership in an easier and more affordable manner.

The Funding Fee
The VA Funding Fee goes directly back into the VA to allow for future military members to receive the same advantages that others are implementing today. The fee itself varies depending on various circumstances, but typically falls between 2% and 3.5% of the home price. This fee can also be rolled in to the total loan amount. Note that those with service-related disabilities are not required to pay this fee.
Anyone who wants to use a VA Loan must have their Certificate of Eligibility (COE). This paperwork comes from the Department of Veterans Affairs and delineates what VA entitlements you have. Remember that you do not need this documentation to begin your loan process and that we can help you to get this paperwork quickly.
