PCS

I am a Certified Military Relocation Professional (MRP) and a service disabled veteran. I work with families being transferred into and out of the Northern VA area including Ft Belvoir, Ft. Meyer, Henderson Hall and the Pentagon. We know how difficult it is to move families so we are particularly sensitive to timing, schools and distance to travel. While the Washington DC area is a great place to live and raise a family, it does present unique challenges. We can help you navigate the area and provide great resources to get you settled or prepare you for your next assignment.

About VA Home Loans

VA helps Service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of their mission to serve you, the VA provides a home loan guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy. VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms.

Advantages for Military Homebuyers

The VA Loan has many advantages that make it one of the most appealing paths to homeownership — and this great benefit is reserved exclusively to those who bravely served our country and select military spouses. When combined, the benefits of the VA mortgage allow service members and Veterans to take advantage of substantial cost savings under qualification requirements designed specifically for members of the military and their unique needs.

Why get a VA loan over other types?

Simply put, a VA Home loan allows qualified buyers the opportunity to purchase a home with no down payment. Also, there are no monthly mortgage insurance premiums to pay, limitations on buyer's closing costs, and an appraisal that informs the buyer of the property value. For most loans on new houses, construction is inspected at appropriate stages and a one year warranty is required from the builder. VA also performs personal loan servicing and offers financial counseling to help veterans  having temporary financial difficulties.

How long do I have to use the benefit?
