Many military veterans apply for a VA loan when looking to purchase a house.

slide 4:

In most cases these particular loans offer favorable terms for the applicant which is the reason that close to 80 of veterans own their own home.

slide 5:

However there may be certain instances when a VA loan may not be an appropriate option.

slide 6:

What are some instances when an individual should look into other loan programs

slide 7:


slide 8:

Many people use VA loans because they can offer loans for homes without requiring down payment or mortgage insurance.

slide 9:

In most instances loan options through banks will require you to put some money down.

slide 10:

However what happens if you have the 20 to put down on a home

slide 11:

In many cases you may find more favorable options if you look elsewhere.

slide 12:

VA loans normally have a fee which is charged to each loan. If you are able to put down 20 you may be able to avoid such fees.

slide 13:

Typically the fee can range from 2 to 2.2 depending on a certain set of criteria.

slide 14:


slide 15:

If you have great credit then many outside loan programs may be able to offer more favorable terms.

slide 16:

Most VA loans allow for lower credit scores and also a higher debt to income ratio.

slide 17:

If you have wonderful credit and limited debt then you may want to explore a conventional loan.

slide 18:


slide 19:

In most cases VA loan programs allow applicants to borrow up to 417000 without putting any money down.

slide 20:

However many people look to purchase a home that is more expensive especially if they live in an area with a higher standard of living.

slide 21:

In this case a conventional loan may be your only option.

slide 22:


slide 23:

In most cases a house purchased with a VA loan must be move-in ready.

slide 24:

If you have found a house that is very affordable but requires some repairs then you may want to look elsewhere to find a loan.

slide 25:

Remember that VA loans must pass a stringent inspection process which may mean that you may not be able to purchase certain types of property.

slide 26:


slide 27:

Remember that if you have a current VA loan you cannot apply for another until the first one is paid off.

slide 28:

If you find another piece of property you may want to apply for a conventional loan instead.

slide 29:

Ultimately if you are looking to purchase a home you should investigate all of your options thoroughly.

slide 30:

Even if you are a veteran you may find that a VA loan may not be your best option.

slide 31:

Consult a loan officer and research all the programs out there and you may find something with more favorable terms and conditions.
