When searching for the right agent make sure they have a strategy on how to make your VA offer look strong. I am not talking about over paying but strengthening your offer with verbiage an using disclosures available that will tell the seller that you mean business ready to perform and will close the transaction if given the opportunity. This also includes a lender that is able to work well with the real estate agent make sure the lender and agent relationship is good as this could jeopardize the transaction should one have a chip on their shoulder. The agent and lender can work together to find the perfect strategy in making a strong offer even if your offer is not the highest.
I wish you the best in your search.
Feel free to give me a call to discuss more, if you are not currently working with an Agent.

As much as I would love to help you, there is an agent in my office that specializes in working with Veteran buyers.
Please contact me, and I would be happy to refer you. He closed over 25 transactions last year, and most of these were Veterans.
