El Paso is well known for its ties to Western folklore as well as its importance as a major border town with significant contributions to trade and commerce with Mexico. With nearby Fort Bliss, the nation’s largest military maneuvering base, El Paso has also recently been recognized as one of the top cities in the U.S. for Veterans to buy a home — according to a recent nationwide survey conducted by Veterans United Home Loans. El Paso came in at number 7 of the top 100 most populated cities in the U.S.
The Veterans Land Board (VLB) is proud to work with lending partners to help Veterans in the El Paso area find their dream home. With the average price of a home in El Paso around $130,000 and 11 combined Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits centers and medical facilities, it’s no wonder the city is home to over 40,000 Veterans. Many of these Veterans rely on VA loans and/or VLB loans to secure their financing. Since 2015, the VLB has helped over 400 Veterans secure financing for home and land loans totaling over $88.7 million.
For Veterans returning to civilian life, finding a forever home is a critical step in the process. The VLB is available around the clock to help with home loans, land loans and home improvement loans. For more information, please visit: https://vlb.texas.gov/loans/index.html
