What is a Texas VA Mortgage Loan

Texas VA Home Loans are for active duty service members, active reservists, honorably discharged service members, as well as retired and disabled service members. VA stands for “Veterans Administration”, which oversees all Veteran benefits including home loans. Established in 1944 and part of the GI Bill or Rights, VA set out to help men and women who served their country catch up to their civilian counterparts by establishing credit and building financial wealth. It’s important to understand that VA does not lend money, VA instead provides lenders a guarantee that covers the lender from loss in the event of foreclosures.  In simple terms VA insures a portion of the loan that the buyer  would have normally had to put down to qualify allowing for a zero down payment. VA loans require an upfront mortgage insurance fee, which can be financed into the loan, from each borrower.  This fee supports the guarantee fund and makes the 100% VA home loan possible.  Veterans with a minimum of 10% disability are exempt from the funding fee.
