Benefits of VA Loan and Texas Veteran mortgage in Austin
The basic intention of the VA direct home loan program is to supply home financing to eligible veterans in areas where private financing is not generally available and to help veterans purchase properties with no down payment.
VA loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) so financial institutions carry less risk and can offer interest rates that are typically 0.5 to 1 percent lower than conventional interest rates.
VA Loans are issued by qualified lenders like us. Combining lower interest rates with the ability to purchase a home with $0 down payment and no PMI (private mortgage insurance) and the savings dramatically outweigh a conventional or FHA loan.
