As many of you are aware, use of the VA loan is growing, with 630,000 VA loans closed in fiscal year 2013. With all of the benefits of the VA mortgage guarantee, such as 0 percent down and no private mortgage insurance, there's no surprise buyers are flocking to this loan product.
Our main focus at Veterans United is assisting veterans and active duty service members in using their hard-earned VA mortgage guarantee. Annually, each of our loan officers close an average of 90 VA loans. When compared to a local bank who may only do a few a year, we're experts in this loan product. Streamlining the entire mortgage process is one way we like to serve, those who've served A few ways we make the process more streamlined are by having our own on-staff underwriters, employees dedicated to reviewing VA loan guidance to continually keep our staff updated and by being familiar with all the specific requirements of this loan product.

24-Hour Agent Hotline
Do you have questions outside of business hours? Of course you do!
We understand that real estate agents don't just work between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. That's why we've created a 24-hour hotline where you can reach out to our Agent Advocates with your VA loan questions at a time convenient to you.
Dedicated Agent Access to Underwriting
This benefit is huge! Have you ever wanted the opportunity to talk directly with an underwriter? With a referral to the Agent Platinum Desk, you'll have direct access to an underwriter dedicated to answering your questions.
Platinum Lighthouse Program
Do you have a buyer interested in pursuing their VA loan benefit, but they're unable to obtain financing? Or maybe they are on the fence about when to buy? We can help.
Our Lighthouse Program works with veteran and active duty service members who fall into two categories: buyers who aren't quite ready to buy but want to start getting information on credit and the loan process and buyers who are ready to buy but can't quite meet the credit requirements. By guiding a potential client to our Lighthouse Program you can help turn loan denial into a successful closing.
Not to mention – it's a completely free service!
Over the next several months you'll be introduced to the Agent Advocates on our Agent Platinum Desk Team and learn more about the amazing benefits of this program.
So what are you waiting for? Refer your VA buyers to our Agent Platinum Desk and let us help you close more VA loans in 2014!
