VA Streamline Refinancing benefits:
The VA does not place any limitations or restrictions on the amount of times you can refinance under the VA Streamline Refinance Program as long as it makes sense and benefits you. 

Since there is very little paperwork and NO credit qualifying, NO debt to income ratios, and NO appraisal it is very simple and easy.  This makes any savings worth wile on an VA a Streamline Refinance.


With home values plummeting over the last 2 years the VA Streamline Refinance is an excellent option for many home owners with current VA loans.  Taking the appraisal out of the equation eliminates not only time and money, but also valuation issues that could arise due to lack of comparable sales or even an overabundance of foreclosure sales in the immediate area.
