Conventional Loans, FHA Loans, and VA Loans – The Differences (Part 2)

Conventional Loans, FHA Loans, and VA Loans – The Differences (Part 2)

Last week, you learned that there are several different types of loans that you may take an interest in if you are currently seeking assistance to purchase a home. The three most common loan types are conventional loans, FHA loans, and VA loans. You learned that conventional loans are not backed by the government and are considered to be risky for lenders. You also learned about FHA loans.

This week, as we conclude this two-part series, you will be introduced to VA loans. At the conclusion of this installment, you will be provided with information on how to contact Somerville National Bank for a home loan that is ideal for your situation.

VA Loans
A VA loan is a special type of loan that is directly guaranteed by the Veterans Administration (VA). This is a loan that is only available to certain individuals. It is made available by lenders that have been approved by the Veterans Administration. As a result of the guarantee by the VA, if a borrower fails to repay the lending institution that issued the loan, the Administration guarantees complete repayment to that financial facility. To qualify for this type of loan to purchase a home, one or more of the following qualifications must be met:

  • The Borrower Must be a Member of the Armed Forces of the United States
  • The Borrower Must be a Veteran of the Armed Services of the United States
  • The Borrower Must be Considered a “Reservist” or a Member of the National Guard
  • The Borrower Must be an “Eligible” Surviving Spouse

One of the most beneficial aspects of obtaining a VA loan is the fact that these loans may be guaranteed without having to put money down. Additionally, there is no outlined requirement for obtaining private mortgage insurance.
