About VA Loans

A VA loan is a mortgage guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) specifically for members of the military to buy and refinance homes. Eligible veterans, active-duty service members, reservists and their spouses may be able to finance a home with no down payment and flexible credit requirements.

VA entitlement is linked to the VA guarantee, which works like mortgage insurance and protects a lender against losses if you default, much like mortgage insurance charged on conventional and FHA loans. However, the VA guarantee isn’t added to your monthly payment or charged as a lump sum, resulting in a lower VA monthly payment compared to a low down payment conventional or FHA loan.

Found the perfect land to build your dream home? Whether you plan to build your home right away or a few years from now, GMM is here to help you get started. Our Land Lot Loan is a loan that can be used to finance the purchase of land or a lot property for your new home.

 

If you’ve served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Public Health Service Corps, or National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA) Corps, you may have earned VA loan benefits.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Served 2 years Regular Service
  • Served 6 years Reserves/National Guard
  • Served 90 days Active Duty during war-time
  • Served 181 days Active Duty during peacetime
  • Released early for duty-related disability
  • Are a surviving spouse of a veteran
  • Are a cadet or midshipmen of a U.S. military academy
  • Are a member of certain other Federal service orginizations
  • VA home loans often have lower interest rates and closing costs than conventional loans
  • You may not have to make a down payment and mortgage insurance is not required
  • You do not have to pay a penalty if you pay off your VA home loan early

You will need to get a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to prove you are eligible for a VA loan. Then you can apply for a VA loan through George Mason Mortgage.

Typically, you can apply for a COE through www.ebenefits.va.gov. However, in some cases, your lender may be able to establish your eligibility and obtain your COE online. Ask us about using this method to obtain a COE.
