The VA appraisal process is designed to protect veterans, however the rules are exploited by unscrupulous assessors who ensure a re-inspections to secure an additional fee from veterans. My assessor charged me a re-inspection fee for a missing switch plate cover in an unfinished detached garage and a missing bathroom faucet. The faucet was being replaced as a result of my home inspection and the cover cost just over dollar and took 1 minute to install. I offered to send a pic of the switch plate to avoid the $115.00 re-inspection, however the assessor insisted on collecting. I wouldn't have paid for a home inspection if I knew the assessor was performing the same service. BUYER BEWARE
Veterans united makes the homebuying process way easier than if you were to go through anyone else. I 100% recommend them.
If I ever decide to move or get another property, I will definitely be contacting Aimee directly!
My experience with veterans united was fantastic! I had applied for a home loan through a few institutions, shopping for rates. Justin was the only one to reach out personally from any of the other lenders. I had decided to go with navy federal and the only reason was because they were promising a lower rate. Justin had followed up with me and assured me they could get close but not as low so he understood, and let me know they were still there from a customer service aspect, and would be ready if we changed our minds. While working with navy federal trying to submit an offer for one of the homes we were looking at we were not able to reach them on saturday. The office was closed, the loan manager i was assigned to had his personal phone off (when he stated I could reach him anytime at that number, even weekends). Our realtor mentioned she has had issues with navy federal in the past with similar situations, and at that point it was a no brainers to reach back out to Justin. He was very professional, understood the situation, and helped right away. We were able to submit the offer that same day, and even though we did not have that offer accepted it began a very smooth process for us. Justin frequently reached out to follow up, or if I ever need to reach him he was available or would return my calls shortly after. He answered all of my questions, as well as informed me of things I was unaware of, and made this entire process enjoyable relieving a lot of stress.
