Veteran_Guide_Cover_DownloadWhen Texas veterans learn about the special land loans available to them through the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB), they are, not surprisingly, excited. After all, these land loans can make land ownership uniquely affordable for Texas veterans. But the VLB sets requirements for qualification. Do Texas Veteran Land loans apply to all properties? 

The land loans offered by the VLB are unique in that they offer a combination of relaxed credit requirements and a low five percent down payment. This is a great way to make desirable Texas land even more affordable. In fact, the 5% down payment is the lowest down payment available in the state of Texas for a land loan.

The TVLB loan is for:

  • Properties in the state of Texas
  • Land purchases of at least one acre
  • A maximum land value of $100,000
  • Only available to “bona fide” residents of Texas who have served in any of the United States military branches
  • Disabled veterans and unmarried surviving spouses, who can receive special discounts
  • 30-year, fixed-rate terms

For more information about the VLB program, visit Vintage Oaks. The veteran-friendly community of Vintage Oaks offers properties ideal for Texas veterans with an array of available properties that meet the TVLB requirements along with convenience to the San Antonio Military Medical Center, the VA Clinic in New Braunfels and Randolph AFB.

Vintage Oaks is home to a number of retired military, veterans and wounded warriors including Army Specialist Cody Nusbaum, recipient of a homesite and mortgage-free home in partnership with Operation FINALLY Home (OFH) and American hero and celebrity J.R. Martinez, who recently purchased a double lot at Vintage Oaks with the intention of building his dream home.

SouthStar Communities and OFH have now partnered on 10 mortgage-free homes for American heroes. For more information about OFH, Vintage Oaks, or the TVLB loan, visit Vintage Oaks.
