Want to know how to:

• Expand your business to veterans; and

• Learn more about low interest loans for veterans?

Veterans Land Board/VA-Partners for Texas Veterans is a three-hour CE class designed to help real estate professionals understand the basics of the Veterans Land Board (VLB) housing, land and home improvement loan programs, as well as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) home loan guaranty program. Attendees will gain a comprehension of veteran eligibility for all programs, as well as general underwriting criteria. Agents who take this course will also learn how to market to veterans in their area and enhance their overall business. Most veterans are either unaware or misinformed regarding their federal and state benefits. This course will provide agents with the knowledge to separate themselves from others who are not knowledgeable about low interest loans for veterans.
