Experts like Chris Birk, director of education at Veterans United, believe increase home loans can propel home ownership further. Birk added a few examples such as "increased community values through property taxes, construction and remodeling." He believes this increase in activity is due to veterans finally understanding what they have earned.

"Since its creation in 1944, VA home loans have allowed more than 22 million service members, veterans and their surviving spouses to purchase a home with more forgiving guidelines than those of a traditional lender, including benefits like no required down payments or mortgage insurance," according to NMN.

"These loans can also be used for refinancing."
