    VA Home Loan guarantee ftw

    Gives you a significant leg up on getting a home loan.

    You just tell the realtor/mortgage company that you're a vet. At the appropriate time the mortgagor will make copies of your DD214 for proof.

    Sometimes you can get in on deals where you won't have to pay anything down, or won't have to pay any closing costs, etc. I moved in to my first house with only one dollar down. :wiggle:

    You need a VA loan certificate of eligibility.
