  • Zero down payment requirements
  • Zero private mortgage insurance (PMI) requirements
  • Competitive interest rates
  • Reusable and lifelong benefits
  • Limitations on closing costs
  • Loan is assumable or transferable
  • No prepayment penalty

Additional Benefits for our Courageous Disabled Vets

In addition to all the benefits listed above, eligible disabled veterans may experience these extra advantages:

Exemption from the VA Funding Fee

Generally, VA home loans require a one-time, upfront fee called the VA funding fee. This fee is a percentage of the loan amount, calculated based on several factors. For many first-time buyers, the fee is 2.15 percent.

However, vets with a service-related disability may be exempt from paying the fee, resulting in cost savings.

Housing Grants for Disabled Veterans

The VA offers grants to veterans and servicemembers with certain permanent and total service-connected disabilities to help purchase or construct an adapted home, or modify an existing home to accommodate a disability.

There are two grant programs that the VA provides: the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant and the Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant.

SAH grants assist veterans with certain service-related disabilities live independently in a barrier-free environment.

SHA grants aid veterans with certain service-connected disabilities adapt or purchase a home to accommodate the disability.
