VA Mortgage Qualifications

A VA mortgage is administered through the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. This loan is for active military members, their families, Reservists, National Guard members, and veterans of the armed forces. To qualify for a VA Newnan home loan as an active military member, you will need to have served a minimum of 90 days during wartime or 181 consecutive days during peacetime. If you are currently enlisted in the Reserves or the National Guard, then there is a minimum 6-year requirement of service in order to qualify. You may also qualify for a VA loan if you are a spouse of someone who has died in the line of duty.


Other requirements needed to qualify for a VA loan include having a stable income and a credit score of around 620. Contact your local lender for more information.


VA Mortgage Benefits

There are many benefits in obtaining a VA mortgage, such as offering low affordable rates for homeowners. A VA mortgage is a government-backed loan, which means the lender is protected by the government in case the borrower defaulted on their mortgage. This is how they are able to offer inexpensive rates and also have a zero down payment requirement.
