It’s hard to imagine a more noble calling than serving our country in the armed forces. That’s why it’s only fitting that on November 11th, we pay tribute to these brave men and women who’ve protected our country for generations.
Because many of our veterans are so committed to our country, they are also committed to their communities. And one of the best ways to truly engrain yourself in a community is through homeownership. It’s the biggest investment any of us will make in our lifetimes. Yet, like many others, veterans face challenges when purchasing their dream home.
We’ve all seen the shifts in the market: fewer homes for sale, rising home prices, and low interest rates that lead to bidding wars. All of this adds up to a difficult home purchasing process and a lot of frustration.
At Alderus Mortgage, we take great pride in helping veterans become homeowners. With our Community Heroes Program, we waive the lender fees for members of the military, active or retired, and we make sure to provide our military members with service tailored specifically for them in appreciation of the selfless ways they have served others.
But there’s more! The government also recognizes the sacrifices of our current service members, veterans, and surviving spouses, and through the Veterans Administration (VA) provides home loan benefits that make homeownership a lot easier and more affordable. Some of those benefits include no down payment, limited closing costs, lower credit score requirements, and no mortgage insurance.

On behalf of the entire Alderus A-Team, we want to thank all the veterans and their loved ones who have given so much to protect and serve us. We honor YOU this Veterans Day and every day.
