Hi, I’m Tracy Grubbs with the G-Team at EXP Realty, and I just got out to my car after taking an all day class in Salem on becoming a Military Relocation Professional. That’s a standard that’s put out by the national association of realtors for people who want to specialize in helping veteran buyers and sellers, which my husband Brian is a veteran and we have a heart for helping and serving our fellow veterans, especially in real estate, which is our field of expertise. We just feel that we have a lot to offer those clients and want to give them special protection in purchasing, making those large investments with homes that are ultimately a financial investment for their future.
There were some statistics that were shared in this class that were really interesting to us. One is that there are over 200,000 veterans in Oregon and only 10% of those veterans are currently using their VA benefit. That’s a really startling statistic to us, so that means one in 10 veterans is using their VA loan. It’s such a fantastic benefit. It’s really the very best loan out there for most people, especially if you’re eligible for it, of course.
We just would encourage you to really investigate your options. We have great lender resources for you on getting the very best rates, people who are specializing in veteran loans and helping you succeed in getting into that type of loan program. Also, there’s some really exciting news about VA loan amounts are going away as of the first of the year, so that’s a really intriguing aspect of the loan that we would love to share with you. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime. We’d love to share our expertise with you and, of course, help you get the very best deal we can in real estate. You can reach us anytime at 541-595-TEAM or on our website at gteamgoahead.com. You can call, text or go online anytime and we’d be happy to help you. Thanks.
