    Has anybody heard of this and/or know if its legit? - Military Housing Assistance, Veterans Closing Cost Grants


    If it isn't already obvious, we're looking in to buying a house and veterans' resources.

    I can't find anything online that says its a scam but I found this on their website which makes me suspicious...

    A: A military service man or woman who would like to be a homebuyer need only qualify for a mortgage loan. Unlike most gifts, ours is a true gift that never needs to be repaid by you, the builder, or the seller. Also there is no administrative fee whatsoever charged for using our gift program. You will work with our approved Realtors©and mortgage lenders that are trained to help you in either of our programs.

    Itís really that simple!
    I personally would not feel comfortable utilizing a service that requires me to use THEIR realtors and mortgage lenders so it definitely appears that the program comes with some very big strings attached.

    Thanks for pointing that out! I noticed it too and just emailed them asking about that caveat. I'll update with their response.

    Did you ever get an answer. I have a realtor I chose to use. Will they allow that? Thank you!
