Aesthetics aren’t the only reason borrowers choose to renovate their home. Features like ramps or accessible bathroom fixtures can be difficult to find on the open market. But your needs and your loved ones’ needs don’t have to wait for the economy to turn around, or for you to build your savings. Many veteran borrowers (or their spouses) who qualify for Veterans Affairs  (VA) loans might want to consider financing renovations to their home with a veteran personal loan from The Federal Savings Bank.


Understanding the Difference Between a VA Loan and a Veteran Personal Loan

Many lenders offer VA home loans, which are backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. These popular loan programs are often a great choice for qualified borrowers who are seeking to purchase a new home, refinance an existing mortgage on their primary residence, or build a new primary residence. VA loans do not, however, typically cover any renovation to existing homes. Fortunately, there’s a solution.

In addition to offering VA home loans, lenders may offer veteran personal loans. These are available for all branches of the Armed Forces (including qualifying National Guardsmen and women) to apply for.

Applying for a veteran personal loan from The Federal Savings Bank can empower you to make the necessary home renovations to accommodate any member of your household with a disability. It may even be possible to apply for a VA home loan to purchase a home you like, and at the same time apply for a veterans personal loan to fund accommodations related to disability.

As a veteran-owned institution, and with many veterans on staff, aiding the families of those who’ve served our country is at the heart of what we do at The Federal Savings Bank.
