There are several reasons why VA approved mortgage lenders appreciate VA home loan applicants. Such lenders appreciate their service to their country and do what they can in return. The VA has established lending guidelines that make it easier for a veteran or active duty service member to buy and finance a home to live in. Buyers don’t have to come up with a down payment which keeps many buyers on the sidelines longer when trying to save up enough money for a down payment and closing costs. Not having to jump over that hurdle is a big plus for veterans. For more on VA loans and how to take advantage of them, see this Military.com article.
