Why Use an MRP

Homeownership is an important part of the fabric of America, and having a stable home environment is vital when men and women of the military are called away to serve their country. That’s why working with a REALTOR® who understands their specific needs and timetable will help make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful.

A Realtor® with the MRP certification has the knowledge and skills for working with veterans and active duty military buyers and sellers to ensure that homeownership remains affordable and accessible.

Real estate professionals help Servicemembers, Veterans, and their families find suitable housing. They can help find local lenders who provide VA loans and advise prospective homeowners about obtaining a VA Home Loan based on their professional experience. 

NAR (National Association of REALTORS) continues to work with VA to provide more flexibility in their policies. Currently, VA limits the fees which a veteran can pay. While this is designed to protect veteran purchasers, it places them at a disadvantage in multiple bid situations or when buying REOs. NAR is working to ensure veterans are not paying unnecessary fees, while ensuring they are able to purchase the home they wish.
