For first time homebuyers a VA loan is simply one of the best options out there and many veterans arent even aware of this benefit.

slide 4:

There are however many steps involved when applying for this type of loan.

slide 5:

A VA Loan specialist can guide you through these steps and ensure that you take advantage of all the perks saving you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.

slide 6:

Here are some ways VA loans save you money.

slide 7:


slide 8:

When youre starting out in life coming up with money for a down payment can cause financial hardship.

slide 9:

While FHA loans require a minimum down payment of 3.5 VA borrowers can purchase a home with no down payment at all.

slide 10:


slide 11:

Perhaps the biggest money saver VA loans offer is not having to purchase private mortgage insurance.

slide 12:

A typical FHA loan with a down payment of less than 20 requires both an upfront and monthly mortgage insurance payment.

slide 13:

The upfront payment is equal to about 1 of the loan. These borrowers also pay an annual mortgage premium of about 1 of their loan amount.

slide 14:

The upfront payment on a 150000 home would be 1500 and the annual premium would add approximately 120 to a borrowers monthly payment.

slide 15:

This can add up to over 20000 over the life of the loan.

slide 16:


slide 17:

The federal government backs VA loans. This means banks carry less risk and can offer lower interest rates.

slide 18:

VA rates are usually 0.5 to 1 lower than conventional rates. When purchasing a 150000 home VA borrowers can save 14760 with a 0.5 rate reduction…

slide 19:

…and 28000 with a 1 reduction. A VA loan specialist will work with you to get the lowest rate.

slide 20:


slide 21:

The law prohibits VA borrowers from paying certain closing fees including underwriting and attorney fees.

slide 22:

This is an area where the VA loan specialist plays a pivotal role.

slide 23:

Sellers can pay up to 4 of closing costs. Agents and lenders can also pay closing costs.

slide 24:

If a borrower still needs to cover some closing costs the lender can charge a 1 origination fee instead of charging prohibited fees.

slide 25:


slide 26:

All VA loans prohibit prepayment penalties. This means you can pay off your loan early and save thousands of dollars in interest payments.

slide 27:

If you have an existing loan a VA loan specialist can help you reduce your monthly payment with a VA streamline refinance loan.

slide 28:

Borrowers do need to keep in mind that there is a one-time VA funding fee that helps offset the cost of the loans to taxpayers.

slide 29:

These fees range from 1.25 to 3.3 . The fee can be built into the loan. This will reduce the amount due at closing but monthly payments will increase.

slide 30:

A seller may agree to pay for all or part of the funding fee as well.

slide 31:

What could you do with an extra 20000 or even 50000 Pay your mortgage in full early Send your kids to college
