Our veterans are brave and heroic, putting their lives on the line to defend our country. Being a veteran brings certain benefits. At Westport Federal Credit Union, we are proud to offer VA Mortgages to those who have served and put their lives on the line for us.
A Veteran’s Affairs (VA) mortgage is a zero dollar down mortgage option available to active service members, veterans, and eligible surviving spouses. This program allows you to buy, build or repair a place for you to call home.
VA Mortgage vs. Traditional Mortgages
Conventional mortgages usually require a 20% down, but the VA mortgage is 0% down! VA mortgages do not require you to buy Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI), as opposed conventional mortgages, where it’s required with less than 20% down. It is also much easier to get a VA mortgage if you are eligible since other mortgages hold stricter qualification procedures.
If you or someone you know may qualify for a VA mortgage, we’re here to help. For more information, call us today at 508.679.0197. Secure your financial future with us.
