A VA home loan guaranty means that a purchaser obtains a loan through a private lender, such as a bank, credit union or mortgage company. VA then works with the lender to guarantee the loan. If the home owner defaults on the loan, VA will pay the debt to the lender.
Keeping this in view, how do you guaranty a VA loan?
No loan can be guaranteed by VA without first being appraised by a VA-assigned fee appraiser. A lender can request a VA appraisal through VA systems. The Veteran borrower typically pays for the appraisal upon completion, according to a fee schedule approved by VA. This VA appraisal estimates value of the property.
Accordingly, what is VA guaranty equity reserves?
The term “VA loan equity reserves” refers to how much equity you’ve built up in your property. It’s typically used by unscrupulous lenders in solicitations — often in the mail — to get borrowers to refinance their loans (even when they may not need to or benefit from it). Despite this, home equity has value.
