It’s always great to see someone who has served our country for years living a good life, and Captain Johnny Bryant is a shining example of someone who does this very thing. Johnny has served for years in the ARMY National Guard, he’s co-owner of LegendBorne, and he’s also a savvy real estate investor. He’s a funny guy…always cracking jokes and making everyone laugh whenever he’s around. Add these talents with his ability to be smart with his real estate investments and you have a pretty awesome lifestyle for one of our beloved veterans.
Back in 2011 when the market in downtown Charleston was becoming hot, Johnny scooped up a cool historic home that consisted of an upstairs 2 bedroom apartment, a downstairs 2 bedroom and a super cool carriage house in the back yard. He spent most of his free time remodeling and fixing up the home with the help of some of his contractor friends before renting out the units. This has proven to be a very successful venture for him and was all made possible by the VA loan he obtained.
We caught up with Jason Paluscsak, our VA Lending Expert in Charleston, for a few of the perks of obtaining a VA loan. Not only do VA loans go up to 100% financing, they also do not have mortgage insurance, which is definitely a money saver for veterans. The credit guidelines are less strict than a conventional loan and the VA funding fee can even be waived if the veteran is disabled. With rates as low as they are and VA loans having all of these perks, it actually allows the veteran to borrow more, giving them more buying power. If you’re interested in a VA loan or have questions regarding your current situation, click here to email Jason today or call us at 843-225-1956. We’d love to help you!
As always, many thanks and much love to our veterans for their service. We can’t thank you enough for all you do!
