  • Of the many mortgage options that are available to homebuyers, the VA guaranteed loan program offers affordable home loans for veterans and active duty service people who are considering purchasing a home.

  • The application process for VA loans is slightly different than for conventional loans.

  • If you follow these tips, you will easily navigate the application process:

  • Apply for Your Certificate of Eligibility1

    A Certificate of Eligibility is required to document your service in the military. Veterans or active duty military can file a DD-214 or DD 26-1880

  • Apply for Your Certificate of Eligibility1

    Other service members may be required to use other types of forms to acquire the Certificate of Eligibility.

  • Make Sure Your Credit Record Is Clean2

    The Veterans Administration does not provide the money for home loans. Instead, they guarantee payment to lenders in case you cannot pay off the loan.

  • Make Sure Your Credit Record Is Clean2

    To ensure that you have the ability to pay the loan, lenders will require a copy of your credit record. Generally, a rating of 620 or better is required for approval of a VA loan.

  • Make Sure Your Credit Record Is Clean2

    If you have had problems in the past, make arrangements to pay off any past debts. This action will help to raise your credit rating for approval.

  • If You Have Credit Problems, Wait The Appropriate Amount of Time3

    A bankruptcy or foreclosure does not disqualify you from getting approval for a VA home loan. A bankruptcy can deduct as much as 240 points from your credit rating.

  • If You Have Credit Problems, Wait The Appropriate Amount of Time3

    The VA guaranteed loan program requires that you wait 2 years after a Chapter 7 bankruptcy before being eligible for a loan.

  • If You Have Credit Problems, Wait The Appropriate Amount of Time3

    If you filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will only have to wait one year before applying for a loan. If you have gone into foreclosure on a previous home, you may be eligible for a VA loan after a 2-year waiting period.

  • Submit All Required Documentation in a Timely Manner4

    A number of documents are needed to complete the loan process. These should be provided as quickly as possible:

  • Your basic information, such as name, address and phone number.

    You must provide previous addresses for the past two years, dates of birth, years of education completed, social security numbers and ID, such as drivers license or government ID.

  • Your employment information or tax forms from two previous years if you are self-employed are also required.

    Pensions or retirement letters may also be needed.

  • Information on other assets, such as bank accounts, stocks or other holdings should be provided.

    The sale contract on the property and appraisal information is also required for a loan application.

  • Research A Number of Lenders5

    As with a conventional loan, you should contact a number of lenders to learn their rates for a home loan.

  • Calculate Points and Interest Rates Carefully6

    Some lenders may offer better rates, payment of points or other special offers that can make a significant difference in the overall cost of your loan.

  • These tips can help you to acquire your VA guaranteed loan at the best price and in the fastest amount of time, so that you and your family can enjoy the benefits of home ownership.
