July 2019 is a month for the history books. Today Realtors and veterans everywhere are celebrating as the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act has just been signed into law. H.R. 299, which eliminates the cap on home loans issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs, is a bill benefiting veterans seeking to make home purchases.
More often than ever, today’s veterans are taking advantage of VA home loans. With zero down payment, no mortgage insurance, and flexible standards for credit, VA loans are, hands down, the best loan available on the market. Because of these reasons, if you know someone who is veteran or has some military affiliation, it may be worthwhile to explore VA loans as a possible road to homeownership.
