BOS is proud to offer VA Loans–home mortgages backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). With a VA loan, eligible service members and veterans can buy a home with little or no down payment, or refinance an existing home to get cash out or a lower monthly payment.

For a limited time, you can receive $500 off the closing costs for a VA Loan with BOS. Stop by your local branch today or email us at mortgage@bankwithbos.com.

Ready to go? Visit our online mortgage center today to apply.

All loans subject to credit approval. Must meet program requirements. Bank of Springfield NMLS# 402619
