Vintage Oaks offers three special Texas Housing programs to Texas Veterans: The Land Program, The Housing Assistance Program & The Home Improvement Program. Texas veterans can use all three Texas loan programs at one time!

Eligibility Requirements

An applicant must have:

  • Served no fewer than 90 cumulative days on active duty or active duty training.

  • Not been dishonorably discharged.

How the Land Program Works

The Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) will finance the tract of land in which you are interested. It takes approximately 60 days to close a loan, provided all necessary documentation is submitted timely and there are no unusual situations associated with the purchase. The property must be at least one acre, completely within the state of Texas and have legal, usable access to a public road

The TVLB will finance the LEAST of the following options:

  • $80,000, or
  • 95% of the final agreed purchase price, or
  • 95% of the appraised value of the land.

You must have at least a five percent down payment invested as cash equity in the property.

For more details, attend our upcoming Texas Veterans event at Vintage Oaks at the Vineyard on Saturday, September 25 anytime from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or visit http://www.texasveterans.com.
