Hi there,

Most REALTORS here can introduce you to mortgage brokers that they consider effective. Make sure you talk with someone that has experience with VA loans. If the first one does not work for you, consider talking with someone else.

Good luck!

Dear Sophie:

Your Realtor would be pleased to recommend that has worked with them on past VA loans.

Don't forget to ask about the Home In Five free 6% grant for homes purchased in Maricopa County for VA buyers. The 6% is for low to moderate income buyers and does not have to be returned. The 6% can be used for closing costs or down payment on an FHA loan (5% for FHA buyers).

Congratulations on your pending purchase! I work with clients that have less than stellar credit. First, we can approve a loan for clients down to a 580 mid score on a purchase. Second, I help my clients increase their scores by analyzing their credit reports and making suggestions that can increase scores, quickly.

In your situation the one I would recommend has credit repair knowledge and will put a plan together with you so that you qualify as soon as possible. He also has completed a number of VA loans recently so he knows both sides of what you need.

It is possible and can be completed!

You will find a slew of realtors that are willing to help you. Ask a few important they have experience with recent VA loans?, what issues, if any arose in that experience?, and when was the last VA loan done by their lender?.

This should put you in a better scenario. You will need to have that lender address your credit issues upfront, and trust in that advice.

Best of luck! I am happy to help, should you need some direction.

The recommendation of a good lender from a reputable Realtor or Title company is a VERY good way. Both of these sources have people in their circle of business that they know, trust and have had success in closing business with them. Both Realtors and Title Companies get very familiar with various lenders' scope of expertise, niche products and whether or not they have good integrity in their lending practices. Realtors are usually especially willing to refer the lenders they feel are good to work with, as they want to send their clients to someone they trust.

Most if not all agents can provide lenders they work with that can get you started so you can move forward to finding a home. You might start out where you bank since they usually have loan officers and you have an established relationship with them. Here's one I use frequently but shop around as well.
