The National Association of REALTORS® confers the MRP certification to REALTORS® who want to help military personnel and veterans find housing solutions that best meet their needs and allow them to take full advantage of their military benefits.

 VA HOME LOAN FAQ'S

What is a VA mortgage loan?

VA loan is a mortgage loan in the United States guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The loan may be issued by qualified lenders. The VA loan was designed to offer long-term financing to eligible American veterans or their surviving spouses (provided they do not remarry).

Do you need PMI with a VA loan?

Generally, all Veterans using the VA Home Loan Guaranty benefit must pay a funding fee. This reduces the loan's cost to taxpayers considering that a VA loan requires no down payment and has no monthly mortgage insurance.

How many times can you use a VA home loan?

One of great parts of the VA home loan program is that eligible service members have the benefit for life. Even if a veteran has used most or all of their entitlement to purchase a home, that entitlement can be fully restored once the loan is repaid in full.

Do you have to make a down payment with a VA loan?

The days of no-down-payment mortgages are long gone, but not for veterans. Loans guaranteed by the VA can be obtained without any down payment. Another plus: A VA loan doesn't require mortgage insurance, as do Federal Housing Administration and conventional loans with less than 20 percent down payment.
