VA Streamlined Mortgage Refinance (part 1 of 2)
The unfortunate fact is that not everyone is eligible for VA streamlined mortgage refinance. If, however, you prove to qualify then you stand to enjoy various advantages.
5 Benefits of Getting VA Streamlined Mortgage Refinance
VA streamlined mortgage refinancing is different from other types of loans because of the unique benefits it offers, some of which are listed below.
No Appraisal Requirements
Property assessment has always been part and parcel of the loan application process but VA streamlined mortgage refinancing is a definite exception. As long as you prove to meet the requirements for the loan, an appraisal of your property is no longer necessary. Automated valuation or a drive-by assessment would more than do.
No Credit Check
VA doesn’t care about your current credit rating. This may be bad news for those who have worked hard to maintain a stellar credit score but it’s sure to be good news for those with poor credit scores.
The absence of a credit check, however, doesn’t mean you don’t have to meet any other credit-related requirements. To become eligible for VA streamlined refinancing, you need to have an existing loan than you’re currently paying for. If you don’t have a loan then what you need is financing and not refinancing. Secondly, you must prove that you’ve been able to pay on time for the last twelve months or at the very least, you haven’t submitted your payment later than 30 days following your supposed deadline more than once.
No Income Documentation Requirement
VA doesn’t care about where you’re getting your income from either. Unlike with other creditors, you won’t need to email or fax proof of your income. It doesn’t matter if you’re receiving cash income. It doesn’t matter if you’re self-employed. It doesn’t matter if you’re completely reliant on the financial support provided by your loved ones.
