Kansas City is home to many military servicemen and women. Did you know that some stationed in this area receive a Basic Allowance Housing (BAH). The basic allowance housing covers living expenses for those on active duty.
Not only can you apply for the VA loan when buying a house, but you might be able to use your housing allowance to cover your mortgage payments, too. (AKA live for FREE.) It is a pretty sweet deal.
How do I get the BAH?
The BAH is designed to assist in those situations.
Using the BAH toward a mortgage
If you are stationed in an area you’d like to call “home” – you know, plant some roots down – buying a home with your VA loan and using your BAH to pay the mortgage is the way to go.
If you’re in the Kansas City area – we can testify – this is a great place to live!
If you are stationed in the Kansas City area, please see below for a chart of BAH rates.
