Veterans and active duty military with a VA Home Loan might be surprised to know that they can qualify to purchase a home with a second VA Loan based on what’s called their Second-Tier Entitlement.
While there’s plenty to know about the VA Loan for those just looking to use it the first time, there’s a lot of information about using two VA Loans simultaneously.
A lot of vets think they can only use their VA Loan once and they’re trying to save their VA Loan benefit when they don’t have to. The VA does allow for having two VA Loans at the same time, as long as the max entitlement is not exceeded. Also, the borrower must qualify for the second loan and can use rental income on the first home, to offset the mortgage payment, when trying to get qualified income-wise to get another VA Loan.
