Purchasing a home when you or your spouse are in the military can be a frustrating thing. From the feeling of temporary living to the notion that you’re losing money in the process, you might feel defeated. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, we have some tips that might help!
Tips for Moving Military Families
First, we suggest that you find a realtor that knows the standard operations with military families. These agents tend to give insight that you might not have even thought about.
Additionally, we cannot stress enough that your best insight will come from your Family Resource Advocate. This person, in each branch, serves to ease the transition of your family to this new location and life.
As well, in doing research, find out the VA Loan threshold for where you’re moving. It’s possible that you could be allotted 400 thousand or so to purchase a home in Florida, but the threshold maybe significantly higher if you were moving to say Hawaii or San Francisco.
Finally, we suggest you find the right mortgage company. Find a company that knows the ins and outs of the VA Loan process. These companies are much more prepared for your move than inexperienced ones are. If the mortgage company can’t list the average threshold in their state, that company is probably not one you should go with.
