The Most Cost Effective Way for Texas Veterans to Buy Land

Posted by Vintage Oaks


With interest rates at historic lows and Texas land representing some of the best values in the nation, many veterans know now is a smart time to make their purchase. Getting the most for their money means knowing the most cost effective way for Texas veterans to buy land.


Veterans have a number of desirable locations from which to choose throughout Texas. Increasingly, they are buying property and building homes in the Texas Hill Country, where an array of land options, beautiful surroundings, convenience to both Austin and San Antonio, and great access to veterans services combine to provide a stellar way of life. A favorite choice is Vintage Oaks, the Hill Country’s fastest-growing masterplan and home to top Texas values.


Special loans from the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) can make landbuying even more cost effective for veterans. These 30-year conventional loans require only five percent down; the 5% down payment is the lowest down payment available in the state of Texas for a land loan. VLB loans are:

  • Only for properties in the state of Texas
  • For properties of at least one acre
  • For land valued up to $125,000
  • Intended for  “bona fide” residents of Texas who have served in any of the United States’ five military branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or National Guard
  • Also includes special discounts that are offered to disabled veterans and unmarried surviving spouses
