Today at Aceland Mortgage we would like to take the time to honor our veterans and active duty service members. Above all, we appreciate the sacrifice all the men and women of the United States Military have made for our country. They protect our nation and allow us to continue in the pursuit of the American Dream. We’d also like to discuss the home VA loans benefits our service members have earned through their service.

- No Private Mortgage Insurance: They do not require private mortgage insurance on their loans. Borrowers can take advantage of loans up to 100% loan to value without paying the annual premium of PMI.
- Funding Fee: There is a funding fee associated with utilizing a loan, however, it costs less than the payments of private mortgage insurance over time. The funding fee may be paid for at the time of closing or it may be added onto the loan.
