The Advantages of VA Mortgages
The VA Home Loan is the most powerful home buying tool in the industry. The GI Bill reshaped post-War America, and the VA Loan Guaranty Program has surged since the housing crash. VA Mortgages help Service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission at Mortgage 1 and our most rewarding, we are pleased to announce we are one of the top two lenders in our home market in 2016. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling Mortgage 1 Inc. to provide more favorable terms.

Purchase Loans help you purchase a home at a competitive interest rate often without requiring private mortgage insurance.
Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan: also called the Streamline Refinance Loan can help you obtain a lower interest rate by refinancing your existing VA loan.
Your length of service or service commitment, duty status and character of service determine your eligibility for specific home loan benefits.
Purchase Loans and Cash-Out Refinance: VA-guaranteed loans are available for homes for your occupancy or a spouse and/or dependent (for active duty service members). To be eligible, you must have satisfactory credit, sufficient income to meet the expected monthly obligations, and a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE).
You can obtain a COE through eBenefits, by mail, and often through your lender.
"I have worked with Richard for close to 10 years to secure mortgages for home purchases and to refinance, both in Michigan, and out of State. When I have a mortgage need, I call Richard. Simply put, he is the most competent, intelligent and responsive mortgage expert I have ever worked with. In our 10 year relationship he has NEVER let me down...not once. If you need a mortgage, this is the guy you want to form a long term relationship with. He will help you again...and again."
