VA and FHA loans are very popular here in Florida becuase of the high Military retirement and regular retirement folks here. When I practiced in the midwest we NEVER saw VA or FHA...it was all cash or conventional financing

I think it is a no brainer as far as choosing a loan program when your buyer is a veteran. And you realize that we will be seeing a whole lot of veterans saturating the home buying market now for years to come. Use those benefits!! You deserve them! Good luck.
P.S. I don't see a down side for a mortgage company to offer these programs. Their fees are the same as a conventional loan would be, typically. I think that many lenders and brokers do not understand the VA process and therefore shy away from it. Too bad for them. It's a piece of cake.
