Hello Rondelaine,
I would think that a VA loan would qualify you to purchase a short-sale property as long as you intend to occupy it as the owner; which is one of the VA stipulations.

But...would the seller (who still owns the property) and his lender be willing to accept a VA loan since no down payment is required? Submit your offer and find out.

Here is a helpful link for a VA Loan Checklist:

Good luck to you!

Thank you. I appreciate it.

Hi Rondelaine,

You sure can. The only potential concern I can think of is how much the bank will allow in terms of seller concessions for your closing costs.
