What is a VA Loan?

A Veterans Affairs (VA) loan is a mortgage loan that is specifically designed for military personnel, veterans and military families. It is guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and is a home mortgage loan issued by approved lenders, such as Devin Fahrner, and is guaranteed by the federal government. Your local Finance of America advisor Devin Fahrner will provide you with extensive knowledge on mortgage products and loan options, all while creating a personalized mortgage solution that works for you.

If you or your spouse has served or is presently serving in the U.S. military, you might be eligible for a VA loan. A VA loan offers long-term financing with three types of loans: purchase loans, interest rate reduction refinance loans and cash-out refinance loans. No down payment is needed to purchase a home with a VA loan.

VA Loan Refinancing

The VA Loan program allows qualified, current homeowners to take advantage of lower rates in order to have an overall lower monthly payment. If you are in need of home improvement or some extra help paying off auxiliary debts, a VA refinancing can help you obtain the funds you need, when you need them.

The VA offers two main programs to help military homeowners reduce their rates and make ends meet. For those looking to lower their interest rates and payments, the VA offer a Streamline refinance to help uncover significant savings for military homeowners. If you are more interested in cashing in on some of your home’s equity for home improvements or for an emergency, the Cash-Out Refinance can put funds in your pocket for whatever needs arise.
