Foster City, CA – November 7, 2019 – While veterans and active duty military personnel are often aware of the value of their Veterans Affairs (VA) home loan benefit, it's a safe bet they’re unaware additional assistance may be available when buying a home. While most states offer first-time and even repeat homebuyer assistance programs, some have gone further and developed mortgage assistance programs available only to active and former members of the military.
HSH.com, a trusted mortgage resource since 1979, created a hub listing these states and outlining the assistance programs available, States with home buying programs for veterans.
Additional mortgage and home buying assistance for veterans and active military comes in a few forms, including grants and loans to help cover down payments (where needed) and closing costs; many states offer discounts on interest rates they make available.
The directory of offers, presented in an easy-to-review slideshow format, was assembled from HSH's research covering homebuying programs in all 50 states and Washington D.C.
HSH.com encourages veterans and their families to learn about state-backed mortgage offers, VA loans, eligibility and more this Veterans Day.
