Because the mortgage is guaranteed, lenders will offer a lower interest rate and terms than a conventional home loan. VA home loans are available in all 50 states. A VA loan may also have reduced closing costs and no prepayment penalties.
The VA Mortgage is a government-based product offering 100% financing of the reasonable value of the property, with less restrictive qualifying terms than conventional programs.
