Selling Your Home is Like Brain Surgery

Selling your home is a big deal. The decision to do so is usually not a quick one and the thought of selling your home can cause a series of mixed emotions- scared, excited, nervous, sad and a plethora of others.


Many home sellers decide to sell their home on their own in an attempt to save on real estate commissions and rightly so. This seems logical and the process seems easy enough- especially if this isn’t your first rodeo.


I often liken the selling process to brain surgery.

Unfortunately, long-held misconceptions regarding VA home buyers has prevented not only home sellers, but real estate agents from giving well-qualified military buyers a fair shake.
The reality is that this long-cherished home loan program has many benefits to buyers AND sellers. Accepting VA loans will greatly expand your buyer pool and include a demographic that has long led our country in home ownership rates. In 2018 alone, over 600,000 veterans became homeowners using a VA loan. For the veteran, there are many benefits- no down payment, no mortgage insurance, and access to lower mortgage rates than other loan types.
