Lighthouse Program Gives Hope to Struggling Family

Michael Sanderfer is a former Army combat medic who has a daughter with Angelman Syndrome.

Medical bills put a significant financial strain on the Sanderfer family. When Michael and his wife, Kari, first came to Veterans United, they didn't quite have the credit score necessary to prequalify. That initial denial would be the end of the road at a lot of companies. But not at Veterans United.

Michael was connected to a home loan consultant in our Lighthouse Program who works with service members and Veterans to improve their financial profile and get on the path to loan prequalification.

"They were the only company in the couple years that we've been trying this that made us feel like (homeownership) was still possible," Kari said.

Everyone's financial situation is unique and your personal lending experience may vary. Contact a Veterans United Home Loan Specialist today to find out what you qualify for.
