Utah Real Estate Brokerage Opens Specialty Veterans Office

"I felt this was an underserved niche in Utah’s real estate marketplace," said Rob Aubrey, Principal Broker of the office. “VA loans are a mystery to many real estate agents, which can put veteran buyers at a disadvantage purchasing in competitive markets like Salt Lake,” he continued. As an Army veteran, Aubrey felt it was important to form an office catering to the unique needs of military personnel and their families.Military veterans qualify for VA financing which is a type of zero down payment loan. The Veterans Administration guarantees the loan in case of default. Some of the terminology of the VA is unfamiliar to many agents. For example, the VA has an “inspection” instead of an appraisal. The VA inspection is very similar to an FHA appraisal, but the phrasing can be intimidating to a listing agent considering multiple offers.Military clients may also have unique situations like tight timelines due to impending deployment, powers of attorney for deployed buyers and non-standard communication timeframes due to time zone differences. Aubrey and Associates Realty (Veterans) division is well versed in these challenges and can help military families buy and sell homes competitively.
