If you were a member of the US Armed Services, you may qualify for a VA loan – that’s a Veteran’s Administration loan.
Benefits of this type of loan are – as little as no money down, a more-forgiving credit review, no Private Mortgage Insurance, and low interest rates, among other things.

The video begins with a great overview of the loan itself and its requirements / benefits. It ends up with a promotion for the company putting the site together, but that’s okay.
