Real Estate for Veterans
When a veteran is Buying a home, it’s a little different process, especially when he or she finances with a VA mortgage. Any Realtor can guide a service-member through the Home Purchase process. However, if they have a military background, there may be a much better fit.
Veterans need experience
If you vying for a VA loan, this particular loan come with unique eligibility requirements, but also it comes with a whole slew of benefits for those who have served our country. The right Realtor? They can show any veteran how to best take advantage of each of these benefits – and ensure success every step of the way.
Typically, a Realtor who often works with military members has learned some unique technics and work with specific individuals along the way that benefit the veterans. This includes trustworthy VA lenders, veteran-friendly home inspectors and much more. They all understand VA appraisals – reports are more detailed and stringent than traditional appraisals.
Finding the right properties
Often, veterans have unique or special needs. Some of these needs require adaptive housing for disabilities acquired during their tour of service. Others may require homes free of PTSD triggers or other potential objects that are hazardous to the Veteran.
An agent who’s aren’t attuned to these specific issues or seemingly random requests might not be as careful and devoted to understanding how important these requirements are when selecting homes to show a veteran.
Additionally, more experienced Realtor can help veterans find VA-approved condos, co-ops and townhomes.
“You don’t want to visit a place and fall in love, then realize you’ve wasted time and possibly money because your agent didn’t do their research.
Speeding things up
Realtors whom focus on Military personal or veterans are much more accustomed to the speedy timelines many service members are dealing with. Such as Buyers on active duty, for example, may need to purchase a property in as little as a few weeks, before having to be deployed again. Some my be on tour and are coming home, they may not be unable to tour the property or see it in person.
In these situations, the Realtor needs to act Completely on their behalf, using tools like Skype, Facetime and or video chat to walk through homes and evaluate potential properties.
“The majority of my active-duty buyers do not have the option to make a trip in person to view the home, which puts a lot of additional stress on them. The Realtor is “literally their eyes and ears with the purchase of their new home.”
Meeting the right agent
For military home buyers, having the right Realtor can be key. You may look for a Realtor that is former military, or a Realtor that focuses and has been educated in VA requirements.
