Are there negative connotations associated with VA loans?When I first learned about the VA loan benefits I thought that it was too good to be true. Seems like I'm right.I first went to purchase a condominium with a VA loan to find that the complex was not VA approved 2 days before closing. I ended up taking a FHA loan when the lender took responsibility and paid the closing costs for me.(Which they didn't have to, but it was a very respectable move.)Now I'm looking for another condominium since I am now family minded. I need more square footage and less location.Now that I'm looking for contemporary and new (less than 10 years) condominiums, I'm running into the issue that none of them are VA approved.Are the costs for the association to be VA approved not worth it? Is there something I don't know about the connotations of VA loan users?I'm frustrated and disappointed, please help.August 10 2012 - Cincinnati00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
