VA Mortgage Loans With No Lender Overlays And Low Credit Scores

This Article Is About VA Mortgage Loans With No Lender Overlays And Low Credit Scores

President Franklin D. Roosevelt created and signed into law the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act in 1944. This is more commonly known as the G.I. Bill, to reward veterans and qualified family members of the United States Armed Forces. This generous bill for veterans by President Franklin D. Roosevelt allocated funding for college education, books, unemployment benefits for veterans for a year, and housing benefits. Veterans with the housing benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs get a Certificate Of Eligibility (COE) which enables them to qualify for VA Loans. VA Loans offers 100% financing. Qualified Veterans can purchase a home with no money down and no closing costs. 4% of seller’s concessions are allowed by home sellers to the home buyer to cover closing costs. In the event sellers will not give sellers concessions, the Lender can give lender credit to cover part or all closing costs. In this article, we will cover and discuss qualifying for VA Loans With No Lender Overlays And Low Credit Scores at Gustan Cho Associates.
