Owning a home is something everyone dreams about at some time in his or her life. Saving money for the home, finding the home and finally purchasing it is like a dream come true for most people. Many organizations are out there to help individuals achieve this dream. One of these organizations, the Veteran’s Administration (VA) is there to help veterans achieve their dream of home ownership.
While they don’t purchase the home for the veteran, they help them with the purchase process. The lender provides the financing for the veteran, but the VA will often intercept and communicate with the lender on the veteran’s behalf. The Veteran’s Administration will guarantee the loan; therefore, the lender will usually offer a lower rate of interest. This is a huge benefit of being a veteran.
