Husband and I are trying to get a VA loan. How much should we have in savings?We applied through USAA but we were declined because we didn't have anything in our savings account. Since then we have paid off one of our vehicles and added a small loan and have saved up about $1500. Our scores were low to mid 700s. How much would be a good guesstimation on how much to have in our savings before we apply again. We only have two months left to get prequalified before we have to sign another lease.
