Having lived in Northern Virginia for a number of years, I have worked with many, many active duty servicemen and women, as well as veterans. It would be my pleasure to assist you in the purchase of your new home.

Getting "pre approved" will help with the process and move you along with a future offer you will make.
ASAA, could do that for you.

Thank you for your servce to our country Gil and congratulations on your approval ! The VA program is a wonderful benefit for veterans and a great way to buy a home.

Finding a good Realtor is the next logical step since they can guide you to a qualified lender, help you locate the right home and get you through the many steps to your first successful home purchase.
I have experience with first time buyers with VA program benefits and would be happy to help you through the process if you want to give me a call 781-985-1481.

I would stay in touch with your lender and make sure you don't add, subtract or payoff anything without their advice while you start your selection process.
Then choose an area and go to open houses to start meeting active agents and to refine your wish list.

Get to know some of the agents in your area of choice by looking them up online, talking to them, and calling them out of the blue with a question.
See how they respond and if they provide you useful info.

Then choose one and use their experience and knowledge of the area you have chosen to find a great property.
I am on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.

Congrats!

Your next step is to start looking for a home. Did you get a pre-approval letter? That would tell you what you can afford to spend on a new home. At Jack Conway we have a great mortgage company that works with us and we have a great program for Veterans called Military on the Move, (check it out on jackconway.com, click on the Buyers link on the top of the screen). Give me a call if you want me to help you with your new home search. 781-264-2194.

1. Lender preapproval
2. Select agent to work with in your preferred area

Trula has agent reviews if you unfamiliar with Weymouth, otherwise ask friends and family who they used and they did/didn't like about them. A great agent can be a resource of info and knowledge for life if you choose the right one. Congrats and enjoy the process, its exciting!
