Question about Veterans United for refi

Anybody use "Veterans United", for a refinance?  They say they have loaned more than anybody for a VA loan.  Is that true, and if so, does it mean anything?  Turns out it is about $5,000 under my wants. But a fixed rate at close than most would offer.  

Equifax – SECU FICO 8 & NFCU FICO 9 = 691 average.
Experian – Fingerhut FICO 8 & Experian FICO 8 = 639 average.
Transunion – Discover FICO 8 & AmEx Fico 8 = 645 average.
All three Vantage Score 3.0 averages/9 sites = 702 average.
All the above FICO are free credit scores. Vantage is nine free scores average.
Util = about 5% / DTI = about 38% / Income, (feels like negative) - ~$19,500.
Yes, that is $19,500 income. SSD does not pay very much, I work harder at this.
NFCU cashRewards - $1000 / Home Depot - $4000 / Discover It - $3800 / AmEx Cash Card - $1000 / Cap One MC - $1000 / Sears-SYW MC - $3000 / Wayfair - $4250 / Best Buy - $3000 / Dell CC - $3000 / Big Lots - $1250 / Kohl’s - $1000 / J. Crew - $500 / Brylnhme - $700 / Fingrhut - $700.
Fingerhut only to get the free Experian FICO 8 Score. (need to buy something once a year).
J. Crew & Brylnhme because they are SP approved Credit Cards that report. Increases your SL.
American Express regular gives both FICO 8 & Vantage 3.0. Need to look for the FICO.

Re: Question about Veterans United for refi

$5,000 under you wanting more?  is this a cash out re-fi or is it a rate/term (IRRRL) refinance?  Rates are crazy low right now on VA IRRRL's- 3.0% with very small lender credit (720+).

Re: Question about Veterans United for refi

Veteran's United funds a lot of loans that's for sure. Which is awesome! On the other I am very appreciative for the mere fact of their inability to close loans for my fellow Vets under 620 credit score.  Thank you VU, I'll be more than happy to assist those fine folks.

Re: Question about Veterans United for refi

I want to thank everybody for your replies, I had another forum that emails me replies/answers but didn't sign up for that on this topic. I apologize. Never knew anybody replied.

 

I meant they offered $5000 under the amount needed on a refi with cash out. They offered $81,700 but to pay off my first & second mortgage, a personal loan and closing cost it would only leave about $5,000. I need about $10,000 to do repairs.

 

After I all but max out my credit cards, for repairs prior to the appraisal that will be about $10K and want enough to pay them off also.

 

That was just the pre-qual loan documents for that amount. I am wondering if Veterans United is good about adjusting the final amount? Is it really true they will go to 100% LTV? What I need is about $88K but really want about $92.7K.

 

The last would allow about $15K for repairs and some to save for backup and still be way less than I pay for the 2 mortgages & loan not to mention my CC bills. Plus, still be under 80% LTV. I live on a limited income, SS Disability and only have okay credit scores ~660 FICO & 710 Vantage.
