Analyzing over 25,000 U.S. cities, LendEDU first found the 1,000 places with the highest proportions of veterans & military members. These cities were then ranked based on their affordability for homebuyers that are using a mortgage.

Many or all of the companies featured provide compensation to LendEDU. These commissions are how we maintain our free service for consumers. Compensation, along with hours of in-depth editorial research, determines where & how companies appear on our site.
