Good morning Buckw55 and THANK YOU for your Service to Our Nation!
The Veteran's Administration does not restrict the type of home you are interested in purchasing as long as it is a Single Family, Two, Three, or Four Family home or VA Approved Condominium.
Many people are under the mistaken impression that VA Appraisals are stricter than Conventional or FHA Appraisals. In my experience this is not true.
Find yourself an experienced Local Mortgage Banker who specializes in VA Guaranteed loans and get Prequalified; that should be your starting point. You can then lean on your Mortgage Banker for specific questions of this sort so that you are guided in making the best choice for your family.
