What are The Advantages of VA Mortgages?

The VA Home Loan is the most powerful home buying tool in the industry. The GI Bill reshaped post-War America, and the VA Loan Guaranty Program has surged since the housing crash. VA Mortgages help Service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission at Mortgage 1 and our most rewarding, we are pleased to announce we are one of the top two lenders in our home market in 2016.  VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling Mortgage 1 Inc. to provide more favorable terms.
