Department of Veteran Affairs Purchase and Cash-Out Refinance Home Loan Information

Purchase & Cash-Out Refinance Home Loans

With a Purchase Loan, Eagle Home Loans can help you purchase a home at a competitive interest rate, and if you have been turned down by another lender.

Eagle Home Loans VA Cash-Out Refinance Loan is for homeowners who want to take cash out of their home equity to take care of issues like paying off debt, funding school, or making home improvements. The Cash-Out Refinance Loan can also be used to refinance a non-VA loan into a VA loan. VA will guaranty loans up to 100% of the value of your home.

About the VA Home Loan Guaranty

Your VA Home Loan is handled entirely by Eagle Home Loans and VA rarely gets involved in the loan approval process. VA “stands behind” the loan by guaranteeing a portion of it. If something goes wrong and you can’t make the payments anymore, Eagle Home Loans will contact the VA to rectify the situation. The VA loan guaranty is the “insurance” that Eagle Home Loans receives by making a VA loan to you.
