In order to be eligible for a VA Loan you must have been honorably discharged. We request a Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs when we process your application.
Most loans only look at recurring monthly debt when approving you for a loan, but VA underwriters make sure that you have sufficient remaining monthly income after expenses. This is for your benefit to assure you can afford your loan.
VA has loan amount limits based on the county in which the property is located. You may have to make a down payment, which may still be less than on a conventional or FHA loan.
