VA Certificate of Eligibility - Check

May 16th, 2012 at 12:28 pm

We applied for a VA loan and were approved about two weeks ago. My husband needs a certificate of eligibility to complete the loan. We received a copy of it by email today, so we are good to go.

We may reapply for a conventional loan now that we have sold our home and likely won't close on another home until after we complete our current sale. That would mean we would have a much bigger down payment since we would have the equity out of this house.

Decisions, decisions! I guess I need to run some numbers. Fun!!

Has anyone else used there VA home loan benefits? What did you think about it...good or bad?

    I've used it once to purchases my first home and it wasn't too bad of an experience. Yes you don't have to necessarily pay a down payment but generally the interest rate maybe higher and you have to pay the VA funding fee. I think it's something like 1% but increases the second time you use it but definitely double check.

    Things maybe different now but at least you have options. Good Luck!

    We purchased our very first house with a VA loan (DH was in the Coast Guard). I don't remember it being a bad experience or anything. It seemed to work ok for us, but it was approx 20 years ago.
