Veterans deserve a nice place to call home

The United States is forever indebted to our veterans and active military members, and when their service to our country is over, the least we can do is provide a great city for them to call home.

The first part of that includes finding a town or city that has a high percentage of veterans and active military members in its population. Those places are making veterans happy, while also providing plenty of opportunities for fellow servicemen and women to meet and relate to one another.

The second part is finding a city where our veterans and active military members can afford the homes in the area. It is recommended that no more than 28% of a homeowner’s household income should go towards monthly mortgage payments.

To locate and recognize these cities that are conducive to military homebuyers, LendEDU analyzed the most up-to-date data on over 25,000 U.S. cities.

To fulfill the first part of the equation, we began by narrowing our list down to the 1,000 cities that have the highest proportions of veterans and active military members within their populations.

And to fulfill the second part, we then ranked those 1,000 cities according to each one’s percentage of homes where the mortgage costs 30% or more of the household income. A lower percentage was more favorable.

While all 1,000 cities found below have proven to be great places for veterans and active military members to call home, the cities at the top of the list are especially great in that regard because they have also proven to be incredibly affordable for veteran and active military homebuyers that are using a mortgage.
