Heres a link for the VA approval list process, current lists, and applications.
The process is similar to FHA but its not the same list.  The VA contact or process may or may not currently be fully staffed depending on the level effected in that agency by the government shutdown.  But the site appears to be still up.

If you send me your email I can get an approved list for you.  Please feel free to email me at dianechandler@tampabay.rr.com or phone at 727 410 5611.  I have a 15 year back ground of being a mortgage broker and 13 years of realestate and over the years I have done a ton of VA transactions. Va is very particular  as far as condition so you have to be very careful when locating these types of homes.  Va loans typically take 45 days to close as well. Do you have your green certificate available?  The seller can actually pay up to 6 % of your closing costs which I typically like to see if we can get the seller to participate.  Other things we can discuss

Look forward to hearing from you soon

I'm sure that Isla will not be approved based on residency mix, meaning that there are too many investor owned units or units used for snowbirds second homes.  There are many other conventional condo programs out there with very little down.  You are welcome to call me and I can give you some numbers to call.
