There are approximately 18 million U.S. military veterans. Together they make up about one seventh of the country.
That's a lot of people. In fact, only four states have more people.
Most of these veterans become homeowners at some point. However, many veterinarians are first-time buyers, and a surprising number of them are unaware of the tremendous benefit their service brings to them: VA loans. Or, if you've heard of VA loans, they don't know exactly what that means.
Why is this such a big deal? If you are a veteran, a VA loan could buy a home with no money loss. Seriously. For most vets, you don't have to wait to save a huge 20% deposit. That is a major obstacle for many homebuyers.
If you're a veteran and want to buy a home, a company called Veterans United Home Loans can help you purchase a home – no down payment is required.
