VA Loan

Mortgage Store, LLC in Rolla helps homeowners secure VA loans. 

In 1944, before the end of World War II, Congress passed the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act. The act offered a wide variety of benefits to eligible veterans, and the home-loan program was among its most important provisions.

Presently, the Department of Veterans Affairs oversees the VA home-loan benefit program. Like a borrower getting a conventional home mortgage, a VA loan borrower must go through a private lender, specifically one approved by the VA. Unlike a conventional home loan, however, a VA loan often does not require a down payment. Instead, you’ll need to pay a lowered funding fee. These loans are somewhat easier to qualify for than conventional mortgages, and they’re partially guaranteed by the VA as long as its guidelines are met.

Benefits of VA Loans

VA Home Loans offer the following features:

  • Interest rates that are a little lower than those of conventional loans

  • No down payment needed (if the purchase price doesn’t exceed the appraised value)

  • No private mortgage insurance required on loans of more than 80% of a home’s appraised value (which can often save borrowers $100 to $200 a month)

  • Strict limits on closing costs

  • No minimum credit score required

  • No prepayment penalty for eliminating your mortgage ahead of schedule

Who is Eligible for a VA Loan?
