Any veterans or active duty members out there?

What are your thoughts on using a VA loan for investment properties? of course, I know I'd have to live in the property for at least a year or two, but I am wondering if the VA fee is worth it, and if others have had luck making the numbers work using a VA loan. What are some benefits and things to look out for?

Thanks for your input in advance! 

@Millie Gargurevich the VA funding fee is extremely miniscule, and I would absolutely say the VA loan is worth utilizing! Where are you looking to purchase?

Check ou the two articles i wrote on BiggerPockets about the VA loan (just search "VA Loan" on the site, and they will both pop up)

Hi there! you are probably right, David, the funding fee is pretty miniscule in the big picture. The VA loan helped me purchase my first two properties. I've used conventional loans since then. I am going to check out your articles on BP. Thanks for the reply!
