Diane,

These properties can only be sold to veterans. It is a special program and there are restrictions on purchasing and selling.

I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

VA financing is available?

Hi Diane,

Its probably a VA foreclosure and they give first priority to veterans who write an offer. However, this does not exlude you from writing an offer. I would contact your agent and go see it!!!

Good Luck

As a school teacher, unlike many, you can actually do math and know what a good deal is when you see it correct?

Tell me if you understand this savings NICHE:

As far as your question, likely the seller and/or realtor are marketing towards military, as generally they have the ability to buy with the least amount down.

Steve,
Can you send me information on a VA loan? I am already pre-qualified for HFA with Bank of America. I have not shopped around at all for a mortgage. Should I?
