VA Loans

The Department of Veterans Affairs guarantees VA Loans, which are used to finance the following: a purchase of an owner-occupied, VA-approved residence that is a single family home, townhouse or condominium; building a home; and buying and renovating a home. Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs (ODVA) loans offer veterans living in Oregon a home loan, but it is somewhat different from a VA loan. Oregon National Guard members often use this loan program. Contact your military service to determine your eligibility.
