They shouldn't. I just completed a VA sale transaction and it was the smoothest transaction I have experienced in a long while. With the VA purchase price currently set at $417,000 it enables a huge sector of the population to e able to purchase a home with no down payment, no closing costs and in some circumstances, no PMI (disabled veterans benefit from this). I just closed a VA loan this week, March 26th at 5.75% interest rate for a veteran that had a 690 fico score and stable income.
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.
