Security America Mortgage has a proud history of helping Veteran achieve the American Dream of homeownership. During the economic crisis that started in 2007, we saw the majority of residential home loans to be conventional and subprime loans. During that time almost anyone could get a home loan without having to put money down. Not only did they not have to put money down, but there also wasn’t much to the qualifying process. There was not near enough regulation in the market and since most everyone could easily qualify for a Fannie Mae conventional loan, it made VA loans momentarily obsolete. The lack of regulation on the subprime and conventional home loan market was a major part of the financial crisis and the reason we’ve seen so many defaults and foreclosures.
When the conventional market went away during this period of regulation, government loans came back. At Security America Mortgage we made it a point to become an FHA approved lender and a VA approved lender. No longer could everyone get a 100% loan and get all of their closing costs covered. No longer could a borrower state their income without verification. With this new period of regulation, the VA loan came back, and we made it our niche. The VA home loan is the only true 100% home loan in this day and age. It’s a great loan that offers a 4% seller contribution. There is no mortgage insurance and the VA funding fee is waived for disabled Veterans with a disability of more than 10%.
In years past, loan officers pushed their clients into quick closing, non-verified asset, non-verified income loans like sub-prime and conventional loans. They stayed away from VA loans because they required more documentation and took more time. That old school of thought is still instilled in many banks. However, now all loans require the same documentation or very similar documentation of that of a VA home loan. Furthermore, VA home loans had a much lower default rate because they never quit verifying income and assets like some of the 100% loan to value conventional loans allowed. The VA home loan has historically had lower default rates. We have embraced the VA home loan and made Veteran Home loans our top priority from day 1.
