Looking for VA Approved Townhouses in Hyde Park/Poughkeepsie area!

Asked by Titus Choi, Hyde Park, NY Sat Jul 14, 2012

Currently in a bit of a standstill. Looking for townhouses that are VA Approved in Hyde Park/Poughkeepsie area, and there are some concerns:

1) Common misconception of townhouses that are FHA approved is also VA approved is WRONG! I can find numerous properties that are FHA approved but not VA Approved.

2) Is there an centralized site where they list VA Approved town homes by location?

3) If the townhouse is not VA Approved, what are the necessary procedures to get it VA approved?


Help the community by answering this question:



The property listed above, Trulia lists it as a Condo, but it is a single family attached home from what I see (PUD) with HOA. Is this a property that is VA Approved?

Speak to a specialist that deals with VA loans not every mortgage broker or loan officer deals with VA loans. Thank you for serving our country.

If you are looking to find if the Condo is VA approved you can go to the Department of Veterans affairs website. Below is the link. For FHA loans you can search on HUD’s website. Good Luck!!

Jeff is correct that there is a list for approved condos that may be Townhouse style. But a true Townhouse is a single family attached home also known as a PUD. If you are looking for a Townhouse it needs to be known what the legal description is. Is it condo or Single family attached. If it is a True Townhouse it will not appear on the list because it actually does not need to be approved at all. Only approved condos are on the list. There are quite a few Townhouse Complex in Hyde Park/Poughkeepsie area.

Actually there is a list, if you go to http://www.va.gov/ there is a search tool there for approved complexes I tried to paste the exact link but it is too long. To answer your question there are none in Poughkeepsie, one in Lagrange Hampton Mews, Toll Brothers in Fishkill and Tivoli Gardens in Red Hook. If you want the exact link (it may be a little hard to find) email me I’d be happy to send it to you. If you need any more help please let me know.
