A recent Seattle Times article on VA loans was a good reminder about a great, often forgotten, loan program. VA loans are opening doors to home ownership for many buyers. VA guaranteed mortgages offer zero down loan programs and more flexible credit underwriting. This is a great opportunity for returning vets (or vets who have not yet used their VA loan benefit) to step into home ownership. Condominiums, as long as a community meets certain criteria and is VA approved, offer an affordable option for first time or repeat buyers. Contact me for information on local VA approved condo communities or talk with your lender for more loan information.
