San Diego-based Compass agent Todd Armstrong is a decorated veteran with 23 years of military experience as an Aviation Electrician’s Mate Senior Chief, deployed multiple times in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom with the United States Navy. His many years of experience make him an expert in the VA homebuyer process.
In a recent article in Housing Wire, Armstrong discusses his experience with Veterans Administration (VA) mortgage loan transactions to help VA buyers better navigate the market.
“I just closed two or three transactions with VA loans in 21 days, so you can’t tell me that we can’t close in under 30 days,” Armstrong told Housing Wire. ”But it isn’t a misconception that the VA appraisal process is stricter, but if you are smart in your property selection and how you make your offer, it really isn’t a big deal,” said Armstrong.
Todd is currently working with Compass on future efforts to support military and veteran buyers and sellers.
