Veterans Mortgage Forum Launched to Educate U.S. Veterans on Homeownership and VA Products
Lenders Compliance Group, has formed the Veterans Mortgage Forum, an interactive and discussion Web site found online at VeteransMortgageForum.blogspot.com. Membership in the Veterans Mortgage Forum is free and open to all, and invitations have been sent to industry participants. Veterans Mortgage Forum is an Open Group on LinkedIn, with social media functionality in Twitter and Facebook. In addition to the social networking media, Veterans Mortgage Forum welcomes articles and posts from contributors, thereby further enhancing the information available to veterans and other interested parties. "Often, veterans are improperly informed about VA mortgage financing and we have found that there is a need for greater familiarity with various issues involved in such financing," said Jonathan Foxx, president and managing director of Lenders Compliance Group. "And that is why we formed the Veterans Mortgage Forum, specifically to expand the knowledgebase of veterans and enable them to be more effective and educated." Veterans Mortgage Forum is not associated or affiliated with the Veterans Administration (VA). The views expressed are those of the contributing authors and commentators, as well as news services and Web sites linked to it, and do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of any governmental agency, business entity, organization or institution. Veterans Mortgage Forum is not affiliated with and is not a mortgage broker, mortgage banker or a federal or state financial institution. "The Veterans Mortgage Forum Website is not a referral source for loan originators or U.S. veterans who seek a mortgage, nor is it associated or affiliated with the U.S.Veterans Administration (VA), or any person or entity involved in originating a VA residential mortgage," said Foxx. "Veterans Mortgage Forum's Administrator will ban any comments that use this forum as a referral source. This forum has a very focused purpose: It has been created to empower, educate and provide a space to discuss and share information about VA residential mortgage issues. It should not be used as a source of referrals or a way to originate loans."
