Military Relocation Professional (MRP) is one of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) newest Certifications. With the number of Military (Active duty, Reserves, Former, and Retiring) in our area, the need for MRP was way overdue. Real Estate Professionals can now understand the needs and the timetables of the Military to make transfers easier and less stressful. It’s important to find housing solutions that best suit the Military member’s needs and take full advantage of Military Benefits. This is what a MRP Realtor is trained specifically in.
Many Realtors claim and advertise to be Military Relo Specialists but are NOT certified by NAR as such. Hiring MRP makes a difference. WE are specially trained to work for you, the Military. We are familiar with what is available in our community and also able to give the Military member resources because of our training and experience. We also understand and are able to help Disabled Veterans with resources available to meet their needs.
It’s important to work with a lender familiar with VA loans. Lenders need to know the VA loan product inside and out to prevent issues that may occur through the buying process.
Did you purchase a home in the housing boom and now forced to PCS? Wouldn’t it make sense to have a REALTOR who is not only familiar with Short Sales but also with Military issues working for you?
We (MRP Certified Realtors) have the answers for you! Can I use my VA mortgage more than once? Are there any Grants available to help with my Disability? How many years after I’m Discharged or Retired do I have for the Military to pay for my last move? Can I be denied a Short Sale is I’m being PCSd? Can I get a VA mortgage even though I filed for bankruptcy? Can I use my VA loan to purchase a Duplex or Vacation home? Do I have to pay the Funding Fee? Can I add my Funding Fee into my loan amount? Can I get exempt from property taxes with my Disability? Is my VA mortgage assumable?
These and many more questions can be answered by a REALTOR who is MRP certified. As a wife of a Retired Marine, I was familiar with Military benefits but MRP has given me even more information and resources to assist Military members in real estate and advocate for them. Hire a Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Realtor to work for you!
