How do I get a VA Loan

November 09, 2015

How do I get a VA loan, and what are the benefits? Who is eligible? These are the questions we hear every day here at GSF Mortgage, and if you’re a Vet, we are here to help!  We feel privileged to assist our country's Veterans secure financing with a VA loan.


A VA Loan is a mortgage loan guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. GSF Mortgage is a qualified lender that will help you with the VA Loan process. The loan was designed to aid eligible U.S. Veterans or their surviving spouses (provided that they have not remarried) with obtaining a mortgage.


A VA Loan is used for the purchase of a primary residence or for cash out refinance allowing you to take cash out of your home equity to take care of things like paying off debt, school, or home improvements. There is no down-payment, no monthly mortgage insurance, and cash out refinances are available for these loans at up to 100% of the appraised value.


Although the Department of Veterans affairs does not directly lend the money for a VA Loan, it backs loans make by mortgage companies to veterans that qualify.  Eligibility is determined by the VA - such as Active duty personnel, Reservists, National Guard Members, Veterans, and some surviving spouses.


How do you start the process of a VA Loan with GSF Mortgage? Veterans can apply for a VA loan directly with us.  You will need a Certificate of Eligibility from the VA to prove you are eligible for a VA Loan, and we can advise you in this simple process.  GSF Mortgage will help you optimize your benefits available. Contact us today to get started!
