About VA Home Loans

VA home loans are designed to help eligible veterans, reservists, active-duty service members, and some surviving spouses purchase a primary residence by offering excellent mortgage terms that most conventional and FHA mortgages cannot match.

Here are a few things service members should know about VA mortgages:

  • VA home loans are not issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Instead, the VA guarantees a portion of each qualified mortgage loan to help service men and women secure great rates and terms and to give lenders like Bellco FCU confidence that the loan will be repaid.
  • VA home loans are available for the purchase or refinance of primary residences that you will live in full-time, e.g., single-family homes, condos, townhouses, manufactured (modular) homes, and some multi-unit properties (up to a 4-plex), provided you occupy one of the units as your primary residence.
  • VA mortgages cannot be used for investment or rental properties, bare land, second homes, vacation homes, or homes in a foreign country.
  • Qualified borrowers can finance 100% of the home's value without making any down payment. There is also no prepayment penalty, which means you can make extra payments whenever you want and save a bundle in interest over the life of your loan.
  • The VA mortgage program tries to accommodate as many military buyers as possible with a simple and accessible mortgage, so, even with a foreclosure or bankruptcy in your history, you may find it easier to qualify for a VA loan.
  • VA home loans are reusable. If you later decide to sell your home and pay off your existing VA mortgage, you can apply for reinstatement of your home loan benefits and reuse them again and again.
