VA

The Simply Financial Inc Mission

For those who have served our country in the military, the dream of homeownership should not be out of reach. VA loans, provided through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, are a powerful way to honor your service by offering exclusive benefits that make buying a home more affordable and accessible.

At Simply Financial Inc, we are committed to assisting veterans, active-duty service members, and eligible surviving spouses in understanding and utilizing VA loans to achieve the American dream of homeownership. Here, we delve into the world of VA loans, exploring their advantages and how they can serve as your pathway to owning a home.

No Down Payment

VA loans are known for their “zero-down” feature, which means eligible borrowers can purchase a home without the need for a down payment. This is a benefit that distinguishes VA loans from many other mortgage options. Not having to save for a substantial upfront payment can make homeownership more achievable for veterans, active-duty service members, and their families.

Competitive Interest Rates

VA loans typically come with competitive interest rates. This is because they are backed by the U.S. government, which makes lenders more willing to offer favourable terms. Lower interest rates translate into lower monthly mortgage payments, helping borrowers save money over the life of their loan. The financial advantage of these rates can be especially significant over time.

No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

Most mortgage programs require borrowers to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI) when they have a down payment of less than 20%. However, VA loans are an exception. They typically don’t require PMI, even with no down payment. This not only reduces monthly costs but also simplifies the loan process, as borrowers don’t need to navigate the complexities of PMI.

Flexible Credit Requirements

While VA lenders do consider applicants’ credit histories, they often have more flexible credit requirements compared to conventional loans. This flexibility acknowledges the unique financial circumstances that some veterans or service members may face due to their military service, such as frequent relocations. VA loans may provide opportunities for homeownership to individuals who might not qualify for other types of mortgages.

No Prepayment Penalties

VA loans usually do not come with prepayment penalties. This means borrowers can make extra payments or pay off their loans early without incurring additional fees. The absence of prepayment penalties allows borrowers to save money on interest and potentially pay off their mortgage faster, achieving financial goals more quickly.

Additional VA Assistance

The Department of Veterans Affairs offers support to borrowers facing financial difficulties. This support can include loan modifications and other assistance programs designed to help borrowers avoid foreclosure.
The VA’s commitment to assisting veterans and service members goes beyond providing loans; it extends to helping them maintain homeownership during challenging times.
Honoring your service means providing you with the opportunity for homeownership.
