What is a VA Loan?

After World War II, the American government established the VA home loan program in order to help service members, veterans, and their families purchase their dream homes. The loan is guaranteed by the federal government to ensure the best rates and terms. Since the program first began, approximately 18 million VA loans have been issued by the U.S. government. These loans are designed to ensure that the brave men and women who have sacrificed to keep our country safe, have access to adequate funding for purchasing homes. These types of loans can also be issued to cover home repairs and improvements, as well as for debt consolidation.
