CAN VA LOANS BUY LAND?

If you’re considering using your VA Loan benefit for a land purchase, you probably have a lot of questions about how it works, how much land you can purchase and what the requirements may be. Your VA Loan is meant to make the dream of owning a home a reality.  However, using your benefit to purchase land to build a home is probably one of the more complicated uses of the VA loan program. In other words, you cannot use your VA loan to purchase only land. It must be in conjunction with a construction loan to build your forever home.
