Vendee Financing for VA Foreclosed Homes Opens Doors for Home Buyers

BUY VA FORECLOSED HOMES NOW

VENDEE FINANCING PROVIDES PATH FOR MANY WITH CREDIT CHALLENGES

by John P. Allen

If you’re thinking about buying a VA-owned property, Vendee Financing may be an option for you. Unlike VA Loans, which are guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and only granted to U.S. Veterans and their spouses, VA Vendee Financing is available to Veterans and non-Veterans alike.

Compared to traditional mortgage loans, Vendee Financing requires fewer fees and less money out of pocket. You’ll enjoy the unique benefits of a low – or even no – down payment; no mortgage insurance; no tax service fee; no appraisal fee; and no flood certification fee.

While the fees, terms and requirements are subject to change without notice, at the time of this writing the borrower would pay 2.25% of loan amount to the Department of Veteran Affairs.  The Application fee is just $350.00 which is non-refundable fee and made payable to Ocwen Financial Corporation.

Ocwen Financial Corporation handles the majority of VA Home Foreclosures for the lenders who have them on the books.  They are a leading business process outsourcing provider to the financial services industry, specializing in loan servicing, mortgage fulfillment and receivables management services. In the USA, Ocwen is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida with offices in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and New York.

  1. what is the % rate. Was there a $5,000 funding fee to initiate loan?

  2. I am a loan officer. I have already pre-qualified an X Veteran for a VA loan, but when I was looking at your site, I saw a house that she may be interested in viewing, except, does this mean that I will not be able to do the loan as the broker?

    Does this mean she can only use certain financing companies?

  3. Vendee financing is a loan product offered to individuals to help finance the purchase of VA REO Properties. Vendee Financing will be offered to both veterans and non-veterans. Some of the guidelines are listed below:

    Seller may contribute up to 6% of the contract sales price to pay for funding fee, closing costs, prepaid and other expenses.
    Vendee mortgages are assumable by qualification.
    Vendee Financing is not a credit score driven product.
    There are two available terms, a 15 and 30 year fixed rate.
