There is a soft spot in my heart for our Veterans. In addition to supporting several organizations, the standard $495 flat fee is always waived for each VA buyer. There are no other costs to buyers on the agent end, sellers pay both agents in a real estate transaction.
Our Veterans and active military have access to the best loan available to any buyer! A VA loan allows you to put no money down in order to buy a home.
Something to note, with a VA loan, you WILL still have the standard closing costs that all buyers have which generally amount to roughly 4% of the purchase price. On the bright side, VA buyers are able to request up to 6% seller contribution. That being said, you’re asking the seller to reduce their proceeds by the amount you ask them to pay. Sometimes VA buyers prefer to go slightly above list price, in order to get a check back at the closing table.
Even VA buyers do have to put up an Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) when an offer is accepted by the seller. EMD is typically 1% of the sales price. This would be the check you’re able to receive back at the closing table if we are able to get the seller to cover all of your closing costs.
We love our VA buyers and look forward to working with you soon to get into your new home!
