VA Loan Benefits
Florida Veterans and Active Duty service members can utilize the benefits afforded to them by the VA Home Loan Program to buy or refinance a personal home. A VA Mortgage provides them the opportunity for a no down payment home purchase, along with less stringent qualification requirements.
In addition to 100% financing of a home purchase, VA Home Loans do not have private mortgage insurance (PMI). Most VA loans are 30 year fixed rate loans at interest rates comparable to conventional 20% down loan programs. The Veteran home buyer’s closing costs can be paid by the seller, and VA Loans have lower minimum credit score requirements. Click Here to Learn More
VA Loan Eligibility

Most Veterans and Active Duty service members will be eligible if they have served for 181 consecutive days during peacetime or 91 consecutive days during wartime.

VA Loan Refinancing
Veterans and Active Duty service members in Florida who own their home may be eligible to refinance their mortgage using their VA Loan benefits. A VA Loan refinance can lower your rate and payment, and/or provide “cash out” for home improvement projects, debt reduction, or any other purpose.
There are a few different types of VA Refinance loans. For those that currently have a VA Home Loan, usually, a VA Streamline Refinance loan is the best option. For those who have a conventional, FHA or another loan program a traditional VA refinance or VA Cash Out loan may be right for you. Click Here for More Information About Refinancing
Disabled Veteran Benefits
Florida Veterans who have a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs are entitled to additional benefits in relation to their VA Loan and Florida property taxes. These benefits are available to eligible Veterans and unmarried surviving spouses of an eligible Veteran who died in service or as a result of service-related injuries.
Veterans with a 10% or greater disability rating are exempt from the VA funding fee. Veterans living in Florida who have a 100% disability rating may be eligible for a complete exemption from taxes on their personal home. Other benefits apply for those with less than 100% disability.
