With a VA home loan, you don’t have to put any money down when purchasing your new home. Veterans are not allowed to pay many of the typical closing costs involved in a standard refinance; this saves you hundreds of dollars when it is time to finalize your new loan.
Like any other prospective borrower, disabled veterans who are eligible for a VA home loan don’t get one automatically. They’ll still need to meet a VA-approved lender’s credit and underwriting requirements. Generally, VA lenders are looking for a least a 620 credit score to move forward.
A disabled veteran loan provides veterans who were discharged under honorable conditions with cash for anything, whether it is to upgrade to a handicap accessible vehicle, or to repay old high-interest loans through consolidating the debt. Borrowers can even use a single loan for multiple purposes.
