Where Do I Get A VA Home Loan?Veterans, active duty military personnel, and their beneficiaries often hear about the advantages of a VA home loan. However, where to get a VA mortgage loan is a question often asked. Many lenders pitch attractive mortgage programs to veterans and their families. But are they legitimate and for real? For starters, borrowers should contact a well known financial institution or VA approved lender. If applying for your home loan online, confirm the VA mortgage lender is more than an e-mail and 1-800 phone entity. Also check its BBB rating. Mortgage originators approved and guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs are the exception. Otherwise, bypass lenders that look attractive but omit a complete address and contact information.
