Realtor.com® and Veterans United Home Loans have announced the Celebrating 75 Years of the VA Loan $75,000 Veteran Homebuyer Giveaway. The sweepstakes is the fourth giveaway on which realtor.com and Veterans United have collaborated to give back to Veterans and members of the U.S. military.
“For three-quarters of a century, the VA loan has fulfilled its mission of providing our veterans and service members the American dream of homeownership,” says Kris Farmer, chief marketing officer at Veterans United, which in 2018 provided more VA loans than any company in the nation. “We are excited to partner with realtor.com in celebrating 75 years of the VA loan, a great benefit to our service members and veterans, by continuing our support for our nation’s heroes in finding a place to call home.”
Over the past five years, VA purchase loans surged nearly 60 percent from fiscal 2013-2018, according to national data released by the U.S. Department of Veterans. The VA’s fiscal year runs Oct.1-Sept. 30 of each year.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the success and longevity of the VA loan and how many people it has helped become homeowners over the past 75 years,” says Anthony Perry, vice president, Media Sales at realtor.com. “We at realtor.com are thankful for those who have given so much to this country, and are proud to have a role in giving back to a service member.”
The giveaway is open to qualifying U.S. military service members and U.S. military veterans, subject to the Official Rules. Entries to the giveaway will be accepted until 11:59 a.m. ET, May 31, 2019, at www.realtor.com/75-anniversary-veterans-giveaway.
