Hello and Thank You for your dedication to the military by serving and protecting this great country of ours.
My Real Estate experience with most military personnel (past or currently serving) has been that a small percentage were not fully aware of the benefits of the VA home loan program or how to go about getting a VA Loan. You will be surprised how many VA eligible individuals are "out there" going about their daily business and not even knowing if they qualify for a VA home Loan.
I consult Veterans and current active military individuals like yourself to get out of military housing and to get out of the mode of making RENT payments. How you ask? … By helping you to better understand your VA housing benefits and how to utilize them to purchase a home.
Just think about it, as of late the housing trend and a Real Estate industry known fact is that rents are going up . Currently housing prices are very affordable, VA home loan interest rates are very competitive and more than likely the rates will be less than Conventional or FHA loans. You may even be in a situation where a Mortgage payment maybe less than or equal to a Rental payment you are currently making. Having said that, are you ready to explore the next step that will take you closer to that of becoming a homeowner through obtaining a VA home loan? .
Given the current stricter more stringent home mortgage lending environment, it can be said that it is hard to believe that somebody can buy a house with “zero” down payment. But it is true, the VA home loan program has been a major springboard to homeownership for more than 18 million veterans since its inception in 1944. The VA home Loan program is there for you - use it to your advantage.
A little informational "Tidbit " here: .. There was 38,043 total houses, condo's, twinhomes and townhomes sold within San Diego County last year 2017. And of that number, only 4,972 were purchased via "VA Financing" (13.07% of the 38,043 total). Having said that, San Diego is a Military town correct?. So wouldn't it be great if we had more Veterans and/or Current Active military personnel buying more homes than last year? The dream of home ownership (utilizing VA financing) can become a reality for you..

By the way the 2018 VA "zero down" Loan Limit in San Diego is currently at $649,750 (ie: eligible for ZERO down payment up to $649,750)
VA's Jumbo maximum Loan amount in San Diego is at $1,500,000 (VA Home purchases in excess of $649,750 do require a 25% down payment of the overage of the "zero down" Loan Limit of $649,9750 ).
