Investment Real Estate is a GREAT way to set up your portfolio for retirement, but can you leverage your VA benefits to buy an investment property? Another great question I get asked from vets all the time is, can I use a VA loan to buy investment property?

Hi, I’m Chris Pesek with the Dripping Springs Home Team, and I’ve teamed up with Chris Motal over at Palm Lending to answer questions exactly like this that vets have.

So, can you as a vet use a VA loan to buy an investment property? The short answer is no. VA loans can only be used to buy a primary residence.

That’s it for this one, nice and simple. If you’re looking for more answers, keep watching the series. You need anything else, feel free to reach out to me directly and as always, thank you so much for your service, look forward to working with you.
