The Book on VA Loans

By Chris Birk

Veterans and military members need clear, unbiased and helpful information to make the best financial decisions possible. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misleading and flat-out false information online about VA loans.

Chris Birk and Veterans United wanted to create a resource to help educate veterans and military families about what they’ve earned and how to best use it. Chris wrote the first edition of this 300+ page book in 2011. Since then, Veterans United has given away thousands of copies to veterans, active duty service members and real estate agents nationwide.

For military members, training and education is the way we thrive. It's what we do every single day. It shouldn't be any different with homebuying. You need to be trained. You need to be educated. You need to pick up this book.
