Your service to our country comes with benefits.

If you are a veteran or are currently serving in the military, there are special benefits available for purchasing a home or refinancing a mortgage. These resources help you get the loan you deserve.

VA Loan Requirements

Even though you may be eligible for a mortgage based on your service, there are also certain VA Lender qualifications that must be met in order to be approved:

  1. Two years of steady employment.
  2. The last two years of income should be either at the same level or higher.
  3. Your credit score should have less than two 30-day late payments in the last two years and show a minimum credit score of 620.
  4. You must be at least two years past a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge date and have a qualifying credit score since the discharge.
  5. If you are in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must have satisfactorily made at least 12 months of payments and the trustee or bankruptcy judge approved the new credit.
  6. Any foreclosure must be at least two years old, and you must have perfect credit following the foreclosure date.
  7. Purchasing or refinancing is subject to inspection to determine the marketability and verify the current market value.

Other conditions for your mortgage may apply; all loan applications are subject to underwriting approval. Contact a NASB consultant for more information.

1NASB does not charge lender fees on VA loans; however, fees payable to third party service providers are still required.

2VA loans require a down payment if the borrower does not have sufficient entitlement, for Graduated Loan Payment loans or one where the loan amount exceeds the property value. Typically Lenders, however, will also require a down payment of 25% (or more) for the amount in which the loan amount exceeds the conforming loan limit (‘Jumbo loans’).
