The Ins and Outs of Veteran Mortgage Loans

I remember the first time I decided to use my Veteran status to help me secure a Veteran’s Loan. This was 35 years ago, before my Real Estate days and I have to admit I was really quite ignorant. I couldn’t at that time find information to guide me through the process and as a result, it felt clumsy.

 

I recently found this excellent article, something to guide all Veteran’s thru the home buying procedure, specifically securing a VA Loan: VA Loans Offer Good Deals — Ignored in recent years, Veterans Administration mortgage loans are making a comeback.

 

Please feel free to phone me with questions.

Buying thought for the day:
Buying a house can be a complicated process. Remember to employ a Licensed Real Estate Agent. The Agent should not be afraid to give you valid references upon request.

 

Interested in some great reading on selling your home? Take a look at these articles on my website: Selling Your Home: Where do you begin?

Seller Guidance: I would encourage you to employ a Realtor to help you sell your home. When your agent or another agent is showing your house, go away and let them do your work for you. I also urge you to utilize my FREE SELLERS TOOLKIT before selling your house.

Buyer Guidance: I would encourage you to really check out anything and everything you are told by a well meaning seller. Employ the services of a Buyer’s Agent to help you discern what you read and listen to about the area you are thinking of calling home. I would also urge you to get my FREE BUYERS TOOLKIT before heading out on the journey to find your new house.

Information About Paying Down Your Mortgage

As a Real Estate Agent, I’m often asked Mortgage Questions. For example: “Can I pay off my Mortgage early?” “If I have two Mortgages, which one should I pay off first?” “How much of my payment is going toward paying down what I owe?” Actually, the list is unending.

Most important, my first response when someone asks me Mortgage questions is always: “You need to talk with your Bank or perhaps your Loan Officer.” Why? I am not a Mortgage Professional – I am a Realtor®! 

On the other hand, since I’m not a Mortgage Professional, let me direct you to a great article written by Jack Guttentag. This post is truly worth the time it will take you to read.

11 must-knows about early mortgage payoff

Hopefully this writing will give you Information About Paying Down Your Mortgage…

A Restaurant Worth Experiencing In Haymarket Virginia

Haymarket Virginia rests on the fringe of Northern Virginia but yet has a bit of a Small Town, almost Country like feel to it. One of the reasons I enjoy Haymarket is the variety of ShopsRestaurants and even a Haymarket Museum

Last Monday morning I had a meeting in Linden and decided to stop by one of my favorite restaurants, Cupcake Heaven And Cafe in Haymarket. While the restaurant has lunch and other wonderful food, the Cupcakes are sensational. Their name truly says it all.

Needless to say, the people I met with in Linden were thrilled with the Cupcakes I brought to the meeting. In fact, they have given me a standing invitation to come back anytime, as long as I bring a little Heaven with me. Translated, that means Cupcake Heaven Cupcakes

Hopefully I’ve lured you toward Haymarket with this brief post today. If I have, why not check out my Haymarket homes for sale listings on my website. The site is VERY user friendly and full of ACTIVE Listings for Haymarket and ALL of Northern Virginia.

Cupcake Heaven is A Restaurant Worth Experiencing In Haymarket Virginia.
