What financial institution do you recommend for a VA home loan? Does USAA provide home loans?


Hi Redgaboi,

Thanks for reaching out in Community. Yes, USAA does offer home loans and you could reach our bank at 1-800-531-8722 if you have any other questions. 

DO NOT use USAA for your mortgage loan unless you want your life to be turned upside down!! My experience was a nightmare!


Thank you for reaching out in Community. I sincerely regret to hear your mortgage experience was so disappointing. This is absolutely not the experience we strive to provide our members. I see you've been in contact with a specialist regarding this matter. Please do not hesitate to reach out to her if you have additional questions.  

No! Do not use USAA for a mortgage unless you don't care about being homeless for days because of their ineptitude. Then when you point out that you will be homeless for an indeterminant amount of time with 7 children because of their imcompetance (1 that has epilepsy) the response is basically "Sucks to be you."


Thank you for your post in Community. I regret to hear this was your experience with your mortgage loan. I certainly understand your concern for your children while going through this process. I will request a mortgage colleague review and reach out to you to address your concerns. Thank you again for your post. 

All I can tell you is read the reviews! Do not use USAA, literally the worst experience ever (an still not complete). Everything runs smoothly while they are trying to earn your business and then it goes into processing. I emailed three people on the 23rd of April. Thy just emailed me to tell me thy weren't going to make my close date. It's seriously the worst experience I've ever had. The worst part is nobody cares.

My current experience:


I think I am about to get screwed.  I was told last Wednesday that I was cleared by underwriting.  Now, I am scheduled to close this Friday, 9 days after cleared by Underwriting.  I get a call today, Tuesday (my closing is 3 days away) and am told that Underwriting denied my loan?  WTF?  I havean 820 credit score, putting down a large amount. And they have known everything since the appraisal that was sent to me by USAA after they received it on June 8, 2016.  Now, with a closing in less than three days, I have to wait until tomorrow to see if Underwriting will change their mind after I clarified something in an email to the processor that she claims was given to her Director who is working with the Director of Underwriting to try to get it approved.  Talk about ridiculous.  I started this process in April, 2016 and now, 3 days before closing this happens.  I am sick to my stomach trying to figure out what to do.  There are pets involved that will have no place to stay, I have all my stuff that will have to be put in storage, the seller is moving out by Friday and the house will be in limbo with utilities and everything else.  USAA ****-up will end up costing me and others lots of extra money with the delay and now I have to get another mortgage somewhere else.  They are losing out on $200,000 in interest over the 30 year life of the loan.  Do they really care about veterans and members with over 20 years with them, I don't think so.  They should be bending over backwards for someone with my credit score and steady income and not a late payment ever in my life (I am 46).  Now I have to figure out the mortgage fiasco and then where to go get my auto and home insurance, move all my retirement accounts somewhere else, and set up direct deposit somewhere else and move all my money out of here.  They can prevent that and make money on interest if they just get their head out of their ***.  I have to wait until tomorrow morning (Wednesday, 2 days before the scheduled closing for a decision which everyone else is telling me underwriters never change their mind).  Well, wish me luck.
