Note – VA Flip rule:  we do not require the seller to hold the property for 90 days prior to sale like many other lenders.  If the seller of record on the day of the purchase agreement matches, that fits within our rules. Another name for this is the Flip Rule, or VA Flip Rule, where many banks require a seller to be on Title for a minimum of 90 days, we only require 1 day.
