My friend Angella Raisian, who is always on the cutting edge of info (check out her blog ), just published this great information….

VA Vendee Financing Program offers 5% down financing for Real Estate Investors, and is now administered by the Bank of America.  It used to be called the VA Repo, or OCWEN program.
