Help the community by answering this question:


Yes, just as much as any qualified buyer. Make sure you are pre-approved for the loan subject to you finding a property and it appraising. When making an offer you will have to put something down, usually at least 1% of the sales price is required by most banks, you can get this credited to you at closing or even get a check back for the over payment. If you are having the seller pay closing costs you will wanty to add those to the price and make sure you know what percentage to ask for such as 3,4 or 5%. Be ready to close in 30 days or less, do your inspections before you bid, dont add any contingincies. The only thing that will derail you isa cash buyer with no contincies bidding close to, teh same as or more than your bid. Good Luck

Hi Newby Buyer,

Yes! Most several REO/banks in the 94533 (Fairfield) area are accepting VA offers, and paying up to 3.5% for Buyers closing costs. I have done several VA purchases in the last year with no difficulty!

Give it a try!

I have put several first time buyers into REOs....but you do have to be persistent. Some of the listing agents seem to be hesitant to take a chance on 100% financing and get concerned about the VA inspection, which in the past, was quite strict re: the condition of the property. Get yourself a good agent who is willing to work hard and be prepared to make a number of offers.
