The Texas Hill Country is ideal for every type of buyer, but for Texas veterans, the perfect location, gorgeous scenery, and an array of properties and amenities may make it an even better match. Here are 7 reasons veterans should buy Texas Hill Country real estate.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

1. Perfect location

The Texas Hill Country offers an ideal location for veterans, with great convenience to the San Antonio Military Medical Center, the VA Clinic in New Braunfels and also Randolph AFB.

2. Great amenities

Great things to see and do, from some of the state's best recreational activities to family fun to some of the most impossibly beautiful terrain you'll ever see—that's what defines the Texas Hill Country. At Vintage Oaks, the Texas Hill Country’s fastest-selling community, veterans are surrounded by so many amenities—from the resort pool to the lazy river to the Tuscan Clubhouse—they may never want to leave.

3. Special loans make purchases even more affordable

Veterans are often surprised to learn they can live at Vintage Oaks for just 5% down through a special loan from the Texas Veterans Land Board (TVLB). The TVLB loan is a one-of-a-kind program only available in Texas and the 5% down payment is the lowest down payment available in the state.

Rolling hills, towering oak trees, meandering trails—it all combines to create some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. From almost anywhere in the Texas Hill Country, you can enjoy a spectacular panorama of beauty. When veterans live at Vintage Oaks, they can enjoy it right from their own backyard.
