How To Use VA Loan Benefits and VA Loan Refinancing Benefits

Using Your VA Loan

- First home purchases
- Second home purchases (provided the balance of your first Veteran loan has been paid in full)

Veterans, Know What Your Purchase Agreement States
The purchase agreement for your new home is a legally binding document. Before you sign the purchase agreement for your home and your VA loan, make sure it includes things like:
- The exact purchase price of the home.
- Whether the buyer or seller is paying closing costs. The VA allows sellers to pay closing costs, which can help reduce your out of pocket costs even more.
- How much your down payment, if any, will be
- If you or the seller can back out of the sale.
- The closing date, as well as who is responsible for damages after closing, but before the seller moves out of the property.
What About Veteran Loan Refinancing?
If you’ve already purchased a home using a conventional mortgage, FHA loan or even a VA loan, Capital Bank, N.A. can help reduce your monthly payment using Veteran mortgage refinancing. We can help you determine whether a cash-out refinance or a streamline refinance is right for you.
Combine Your Veteran Home Loan With An Energy Efficient Mortgage
An energy efficient mortgage (EEM) gives homeowners much needed cash (up to $6,000) to make updates that can make their home more energy efficient. Homeowners can:
- Replace windows and doors with energy efficient models
- Increase insulation
- Seal air leaks around windows, doors and ducts
- Install a programmable thermostat
- Install a new HVAC system
- Install an efficient tankless hot water heater
