VA Loans vs. Conventional Loans
VA Loans are mortgages from approved lenders – like Mutual of Omaha Mortgage – with a federal guaranty. More than 20 million veterans and their families have benefited from VA loans for more than 70 years. Mutual of Omaha Mortgage's mission is to increase that number exponentially, as we believe that too few qualified veterans and active-duty service members use their VA home loan benefits. It is our civic duty to find a home loan veterans can afford, and to help them achieve their goals of home ownership.
What are the differences for aloan?
U.S. Military Veterans or Active-Duty service members, with qualifying service records, and qualified spouses as determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Typically reserved for rural properties.
Regulations and Fees
While the VA Loan is a federal program, the government generally does not make direct loans to veterans. Private lenders, including Mutual of Omaha Mortgage, finance the loan while the Department of Veterans Affairs offers a guaranty. This guaranty provides incentive for private lenders to offer loans with better terms.
Loan Limits In most parts of the country, veterans who qualify for the VA Loan can purchase a home worth up to $484,350 without putting any money down: borrowers in high-cost counties may be able to purchase homes far exceeding that amount without a down payment. With a required minimum down payment, Mutual of Omaha will authorize VA loans above county limits in excess of $1.5 million.

We created the Patriot's Charity Initiative from our belief that one day a year is not enough to thank our veterans and active duty service members for defending the freedoms we enjoy every single day. Mutual of Omaha Mortgage makes a donation to the USO and other military service organizations. We know that the charities that we’ve partnered with will put that money to good use in our veteran and active duty military communities. We are committed to serving those who are or have served, and this program allows us to express our gratitude in a very tangible and meaningful way each and every day. We are proud that giving back to our veterans and active duty service members is ingrained in the fiber of Mutual of Omaha Mortgage.
