VA Loans

VA Loans

A VA Loan is designed to offer long-term financing to veterans with no money down at a great rate. VA mortgage loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and are guaranteed by the U.S. Veterans Administration. The VA determines eligibility and issues a certificate to qualifying applicants to submit to their mortgage lender of choice. It is generally easier to qualify for a VA loan than conventional loans. First Home Mortgage is a VA approved lender located in Dunkirk and serving surrounding areas in Southern Maryland, including but not limited to Waldorf MD, Prince Frederick, or Lexington Park.

What is a VA Loan?
