This small down payment can be in the form of a gift from a family member, a gift from an employer, an auto equity loan, or simply your checking/savings account. You do not have to be a ‘first time homebuyer’ in order to obtain another FHA loan, in fact, you can own another home & still be eligible!

Appraisals in Knox County for VA loans are $375.00, but the Veteran is not allowed to pay this fee as an ‘up front’ cost. It will be paid at closing. In addition, United Capital Lending does not charge the Veteran typical fees like underwriting, processing and document preparation. These fees are absorbed by the company.
