In honor of the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country, let’s take a look at VA loans and their benefits this Armed Forces Day.
VA loans are a well-deserved benefit to military personnel during and after their service. PrimeLending understands the importance of having a “home base” for military members and their families and is proud to be able to help active and retired military use our VA loan products. That’s why we’re sharing how to take advantage of your VA benefits to reach your homeownership goals.

- No private mortgage insurance
- Limit on closing costs
- Option for seller to pay closing costs
- No lender fees*
- No penalty fee for early payoffs

VA Purchase, Refinance or Renovation
No matter where you are on your home buying journey, we have a VA loan to fit your needs. One of the most common uses for a VA loan is purchasing or building a new home. If you’re ready to finance your very own home base, taking advantage of the benefits from a VA loan is a great start to your homeownership journey.
Already have a VA home loan? Take advantage of low rates and save on your monthly payment with a refinance. If you’re interested in learning about having cash in hand after a refinance, chat with one of our loan experts about a cash-out refinance.
Lastly, if you’ve noticed some things about your home that need updating or want to create a refreshed space, a VA home loan can even help you renovate. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen or living room, creating your ideal home is easier with VA benefits.
