Home Buying Resources for Veterans

Help Available to Veterans Purchasing a Home

Veterans have played important roles in the history of this country. Even with their patriotic and courageous service, there seems to be an information gap about the support and resources that are available to them when they’re attempting to purchase their own home.

Even active duty military personnel may not be able to find a home for their family if they think they don’t have enough money to afford one. Both veterans and active service members are searching for options on what possible financing resources they can use to purchase their home and that’s something that needs to be fixed. The Realty Medics specialize as Orlando property managers, but no matter that the need is, we’re always happy to help our veterans in any way that we can.

What Home Grants or Loans are Available for Veterans?

When you search online, there are many home financing options that you can choose from. However, there are some who may not understand the requirements, especially when the information provided is focused more on technicalities than explaining things. Those in search for home loans and grants offered for veterans need to check out what’s below.

VA (Veterans Affairs) Loan

A loan from the VA is available to U.S. veterans, service members and other eligible surviving spouses. In this loan, the VA will enable a lender to provide the entire loan while they guarantee a portion of it. The requirements for this loan may be confusing for many as the process may seem to have a lot of requirements. However, to get started you need to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility, that lets the lender know that you are in fact eligible for a VA backed loan.This certificate only makes a person eligible, it does not mean that you secure the loan.

What makes this a convenient option is that qualified applicants will not have to deal with a down payment as the VA does not require it. However, your capability of paying the loan will be checked to ensure that you can actually make payments for the loan.

VA Specially Adapted Housing Grant

Veterans who are facing challenges with their disabilities as a result of their military service, may need to have special accommodations or facilities in their homes. This Specially Adapted Housing Grant can be used for renovating their existing home, even if your home is still in the progress of construction. It also can be used to purchase land for the specific purposes of helping with the special accommodations that they need. Here is the VA’s Grant Fact Sheet that covers everything.

State and Local Grants

Depending on which state you live in, you might find that there are more grants that you’re eligible for. There are some states that provide down payment assistance in the form of 0% interest loans. Down payment assistance can reach $5,000, and it’s not repayable until your house is refinanced, sold, or transferred. For those considered as protectors: working in the military, police, firefighters and first responders, the amount may even rise up to $7,500.

It’s a given that veterans and even active duty military personnel are all facing troubles with how they can possibly obtain a home. With the possible financing solutions provided, you now have the opportunity to choose what financing options are available and fit your situation the best.

We think the websites below provide helpful information for anyone looking for even more detailed information and assistance in their area.

What Our Clients Say

Check out this 5 star Google My Business review by Anthea Green:
I have been in contact with The Realty Medics since April 2018 and finally got a tenant January 2019. Trust me, the delay was all on my end! TRM kept in touch with me the entire time, asking for updates on the status of my roof repair (as you can imagine, there was an extremely long waiting period for my roof to be replaced in Volusia County) and were very patient with me. Then within a few weeks of my husband and I getting the unit painted, new carpet installed and various other projects the property management company brought to our attention, we got a tenant! I was so pleased! Within a few days of the tenant moving in, the oven died. The Realty Medics informed us immediately, which gave us time to shop for a new appliance. Then when the delivery date came they contacted the tenant and arranged for her to take lunch to meet the installer. Everything was wonderful! I am always amazed at how quickly they respond to my (many) emails. I really appreciate their consistent professionalism and kindness. It is a pleasure to be able to let go of the day-to-day operations of renting a property and let the professional take over! I highly recommend everyone I've worked with - from Dustin, Kayla, Lisa and Paola! They have all been WONDERFUL! Thank you, everyone!
