About Veteran's United Home Loans
Veteran's United Home Loans, found online at VeteransUnited.com, says they are one of the leading lenders at work in the United States for the VA Loan industry, helping former military members become homeowners.
How Does It Work?
The VA Loan Program works to provide homeownership opportunities to people who otherwise wouldn't qualify for conventional financing. This program may give veterans the chance to purchase a home with no down payment, lower monthly payments, and with relaxed standards for first time buyers.
Those who believe they qualify can use their tools and resources to determine whether or not they may be eligible, what is involved with the VA loan home buying process, and what is required of first time buyers.
When you decide that you are ready to take formal steps forward in securing a potential loan, you can fill out their basic questionnaire and have one of their representatives contact you to discuss your options.
The website does not publish any pricing information, and all the information and tools on their site are free to use. But customers should always know that there are fees and interest rates associated with any loans.
Financial companies do not generally offer refunds, in the traditional sense, though some lenders may offer their customers a period of time where they can cancel their loan and return the principle without penalty. Customers will have to speak to a Veteran's United Home Loans representative directly about potential policies, however.

While I didn't use Veterans United in the end to close on my 4 unit multiplex, I did use them to get preapproved so I could start shopping. The preapproval took under a day to complete and allowed me to put a bid on a great property. My realtor then pushed me towards another lender. But Vets United got me started and really gave me a lot of useful information.
When we decided to buy a house, the first place we looked around was the internet (of course). Veteran's United has really big ads and many of them. My Vet mate filled out the online form and a few days later the forms arrived. He filled them out and mailed them back. After that, we got a letter saying he/we were approved and to go house hunting with our PreQual letter. First, local realtors have their own lender, by that, I mean one they work with every time. They don't want to meet new lenders. Another realtor couldn't get Veteran's United to even respond to their calls. Then we did find a house but there was some confusion on whether it was a mobile or site built. I had to run middle man because the realtor and lender wouldn't talk to each other. The final straw came when the lender (Jody Overacre) screamed at me during a phone call. (WHAT PART OF MOBILE DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND!!??) I mean, he yelled so loud, I had to take the phone away from my ear. Good news is, we did get a VA loan thru someone else and did get the house.
My opinion of Veteran's United is, if you don't need a big loan, and you are willing to do the work yourself, they're ok. I believe they work on quantity. If 1000 people apply, maybe 10 will use them and since they do no actual work; it works for them. Worthless.
