PURCHASING A HOME IN MN, WI, or SD with a VA Loan
If you're like most people, purchasing a home is probably one of the biggest investments you'll ever make in your lifetime. If you're considering buying a home, you're likely aware of the complexity of the endeavor.
If you are active or retired military, you have special VA home loan benefits.
A VA loan allows our military personal to buy a home with ZERO DOWN PAYMENT. You can finance 100% of the homes purchase price for loans up to $453,100.
Now more than ever, banks are requiring bigger and bigger down payments, with expensive mortgage insurance. This puts home ownership out of the reach of many home buyers.

VA LOAN CLOSING COSTS
While VA loans are zero down payment, all mortgage loans, including VA loan have closing costs. These costs cover the many different people and costs associated with obtaining, processing, and closing your loan.
Some of these items including origination fees, appraisal, credit reports, state deed transfer taxes, and title companies fees.
Your closing costs can be paid four different ways:
1) Cash out of your pocket
2) Rolled into the loan (known as seller paid closing costs)
3) Rolled into a slightly higher interest rate
4) A combination of any or all of these options
Between all these options, most of our home buyers using a VA loan end up buying their new home with very little, to no out-of-pocket costs whatsoever.
