A VA loan is perhaps the most powerful and flexible lending option on the market today. Rather than issue loans, the VA instead pledges to repay about a quarter of every loan it guarantees in the unlikely event the borrower defaults. That guarantee gives VA-approved lenders greater protection when lending to military borrowers and often leads to highly competitive rates and terms for qualified veterans.
Benefits of VA Loans
Far and away, the most significant benefit of a VA loan is the borrower's ability to purchase with no money down. Apart from the government's UDSA's Rural Development home loan and Fannie Mae's Home Path, it's all but impossible to find a lending option today that provides borrowers with 100 percent financing.
VA loans also come with less stringent underwriting standards and requirements than conventional loans. In fact, about 80 percent of VA borrowers could not have qualified for a conventional loan. These loans also come with no private mortgage insurance (PMI), a monthly expense that conventional borrowers are required to pay unless they put down at least 20 percent of the loan amount.
VA loans offer a few other bells and whistles:
Competitive interest rates that are routinely lower than conventional rates
No prepayment penalties
Higher allowable debt-to-income ratios than for many other loans
Streamlined refinancing loans that require no additional underwriting

Our Happy Clients
This was our second refinance with Troy. The second I used my VA loan benefit. Communication was fluid between Troy and I. Especially when documents were needed. We simply scanned them in and shot them over via email. the only time that we had to go to the office was for closing. By far one of the easiest and least stressful refinances and closings that my wife have ever experienced! As Troy received updates, he would immediately pass them along to us. Any questions that we had, Troy would clearly explain and answer all of our questions and address any concerns that we may have had. Substantially easier than dealing with one of our previous mortgage lenders.
