One of the myths about a VA home loan is the length of time it takes to close a VA home loan.  This summer one of my returning military clients wrote an offer on a new spec home in Woodbridge VA and closed in 21 days with their VA loan.   There is no reason for a VA home loan process to take any longer than any other loan.
