Some people say that Military Veterans have all the benefits. I would not go that far after seeing what our Vets go through with their service and if they need medical after - it needs to be fixed for sure.
However, they can use a VA - Veterans Administration Loan and buy a home with zero down. They can also borrow against 100% of their home's value. This works where we have represented our Veterans in Los Angeles County and throughout the Santa Clarita Valley Cities. We refer our Veterans to a great VA lender, we keep watch, and after we find our Vet's a great home, the transaction continues until close. Most of our VA buyers are covered for the entire "typical down" amount that is charged for FHA and Conventional buyers.
There is now a new program - the CHENOA Loan
Other's can Buy a home with ZERO down
Using a local Santa Clarita real estate lender, who we are able to recommend, will allow you to use this loan program. Of course, not everyone is going to qualify, but the qual standards don't seem impossible.
FICO required at least a 620 score
Do not have to be a First Time Buyer
They use a second to absorb the down and other costs
You cannot currently own any real estate
How's this - if your income is below 115% of the median household income in the area - your second mortgage would fall off in 3 Years!
Loan amount must be $470,000 or less - Applicable to Los Angeles County.
