Relocation Information for Military Members
If you're relocating to the North Olympic Peninsula area in Washington as an active or veteran service member, you may not know about the benefits of investing in real estate with a VA loan. If you qualify for a VA loan, you may be able to buy a house in the Port Angeles or Sequim area for 0% down with no mortgage insurance. Sequim and Port Angeles are fortunate to have a thriving community with many former military and retired military members.
Things to Consider When Investing with a VA Loan
- VA loans are backed by the VA, but financed through a private lender, which means working with a bank or credit union. Inform your loan officer that you'll be using the VA loan, and always ask about additional veteran incentives they may offer.
- The VA won't back just any home - it has to pass specific requirements. It must meet their Minimum Property Requirements, which mean that the home must be safe, sanitary, and sound. As a result "fixer-uppers" may not qualify.
- VA Loans are assumable, which means that you can transfer the loan (and the home) to another veteran if you do need to move and want to sell your home.
Buying a home can be a great investment, even if it's only for a short period of time. It's important to have an expert guide to help you navigate the home-buying process, who has experience working with VA loans and unique military needs.
