by Steve Randall06 Nov 2018

As Veterans Day approaches this weekend, an analysis of the 100 most populated US metros has determined the ten best for veterans buying homes.

Veterans United Home Loans considered four key factors including economic wellness, employment, availability of VA benefits, and quality of life for veterans. With sub-factors there were 20 dimensions assessed.

The analysis found that San Antonio ranks the highest overall, the second consecutive year that the Texas city has topped the list.

“We have the opportunity to work with Veterans and their families every day as they make the transition back into civilian life and see firsthand the obstacles they endure as they look for a place to call home,” said Chris Birk, director of education at Veterans United Home Loans. “Our report offers a snapshot of what cities across the country have to offer in terms of services and opportunities to Veterans and service members.”

The top 10 cities for Veterans to live are:

  1. San Antonio, TX
  2. Lincoln, NE
  3. Arlington, TX
  4. Raleigh, NC
  5. Oklahoma City, OK
  6. Colorado Springs, CO
  7. Boise, ID
  8. Jacksonville, FL
