I’ve been a loyal customer of Usaa for 10+ years. I can say that I take advantage of every service Usaa provides including checking, savings, credit card and monitoring, auto insurance, mortgage and homeowners insuranse.

Why dose USAA home loan service suck so badGoing on 7 weeks of waiting on appraisal/paperwork even after being prequalifiedAnd I’m pretty sure our loan advisor (Natasha) has no clue which loan she’s dealing with at any given time and her supervisor is no help (Dee Chisim) she has been mysteriously M...
What exactly is the USAA Home Age Discount? We just purchased a home built in 1960 and were given this discount. I'm not complaining. Just want to understand it. Is it a good thing because perhaps Usaa's underwriters consider older homes more stable or something like that? Or is it bad because we di...
