One thought on “Honoring those who served this Veterans Day

  1. I am a veteran and a real estate professional and woul like to suggest that the VA allow eligible veterans who have their mortgage in a ARM or fixed conventional program at or above 5% interest rates, be allowed to refinance to a VA
    loan without having to pay a 10% down payment to due so.

    FHA is currently at 3.5% down payment and I would like to see something less to refinance into a VA loan for otherwise eligible veterans.
