VetCatch interview with The Veteran Realtor

Veterans helping veterans by going fishing? Sounds perfect.

The Veteran Realtor® interviews Jeremy Gordon, Vice President of VetCatch ( VetCatchInc.org or facebook.com/VetCatch ).

It seems like such an obvious match – take Veterans fishing with other Veterans. Being out on the ocean, fresh salt air, with a fishing pole in hand, while surrounded by your brothers and sisters in a supportive (if occasionally bawdy) environment.

I was surprised to learn that VetCatch got its start right here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida!

This was their first major event, and there was a great turnout. Jeremy Gordon was gracious enough to be interviewed, where we discussed the history, goals, and unique strategies that make VetCatch so appealing and effective.

We also discussed the difference between a VFW Post (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and The American Legion, and how other Veteran Organizations are contributing to their success.

And, of course, there is some decidedly Veteran humor and some fishing too.

Sponsors and participants in this event include:
Barracuda Tackle ( BarracudaTackle.com or facebook.com/BarracudaTackle )
The Tampa Bay Fishing Club ( facebook.com/groups/TampaBayFishingClub )
My Warriors Place ( MWPusa.net or facebook.com/mywarriorsplace )
The Fallen Outdoors ( TheFallenOutdoors.com or facebook.com/tfotreasurer )
and Liberty Outdoors ( LibertyOutdoors.us or facebook.com/LibertyOutdoors.US )
who went a bit overboard with coolers and kayaks galore!

And, of course, our Captains, who made it possible for the attendees to get out on the water properly.

HUGE VA Loan News!!!

Just three days ago, President Trump put the final signature to H.R. 299, the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act.” 

This legislation included eliminating the cap on the VA Home Loan guarantee. 

This is enormous!

On Monday, the VA Loan was tied to the FHA Loan cap, which is  $484,350 in 2019 for most loans.

Above that, borrowers had to put down 25 percent of the difference.

For example (and using round numbers because it’s easier), let’s call the cap $500k.

If you wanted to buy a house for $700k, you would have to put down 25%, or in this case, $50k.

Not terrible all things considered.

Now, there is no cap!

If you are well-qualified, you can buy a 10 Million Dollar home… for zero down.

Mind.

Blown.

If you have more questions about real estate, including VA Loans, hit me up in the comments. If it’s a quality question, I may just cut another video to answer it.

Have a great weekend.
