Foreclosures are everywhere we look today. The foreclosure rate is higher than ever before. Many factors contribute to the large number, including the high cost of homes, high interest rate and a shaky economy. Many couples are having difficulty paying their mortgage and end up losing their home. The one that many are not aware of is the VA Foreclosure. Colorado has many VA homes that are in foreclosure.
A VA loan is a loan that is given to a Veteran when the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) guarantees the loan with the lender. The lender is still the institution that is providing the financing, but the VA guarantees the lender that they will pay the loan if the Veteran cannot. The Veteran’s often get a better interest rate from the bank because the loan is guaranteed. In spite of these facts, many of these mortgaged homes still turn into a VA foreclosure. Colorado has many REO (Real Estate Owned) properties for sale.
