Eire02 the VA loan program is a great program. Many Sellers are leery because of the no down. Here are some tips,:
Make sure that the lender is an experienced VA lender. Veterans United it the best in the business.
Make sure the agent is also experienced with VA loans.
Make sure the home qualifies, ie., is in good condition, all utilities are working properly, no major damages and all permits are up to code and date. This is a huge deal breaker.
Hope this helps.

Aloha DG,

The banks are being much more cooperative than they were a few years ago. Almost everything is negotiable, but it takes persistence. In some cases, they can approve an interest rate reduction within a matter of a few weeks. Call the 800# on your statement and ask to speak to a loan negotiator or sales manager. If you don't get the answer you want, call back each week. Keep trying and hopefully you'll have success. You can also talk to a mortgage broker here in Hawaii to do a refinance without taking any cash out or having to pay any cash to do this.

If there was a military clause that allowed them to break the lease due to military transfer and they were transferred, then the rules are simply the contract, you have to return deposit funds according to it. If the deposits were intended to cover damages, and there were none, you'd have to return it? Be cautious in the way you handle the situation, the United States Government does not like people treating military members badly, and will help them get any money owed them back, so make sure you give them what they deserve under the terms of the contract. ... more

There are some properties available that meet your general description. You can either look these up yourself on (on left hand side of page click on the link for Oahu properties for sale, from there you can specify area and type of property you are looking for) or I would be happy to email you the current list of available properties. Just let me know.
