Are you a veteran or military personnel looking to own a beautiful new home in Florida? At Highland Homes, we know and understand that owning a home can provide an unbeatable sense of security, comfort and financial stability. Achieving the American dream of homeownership still rings true for veterans across the country, including right here in the beautiful state of Florida. Veterans in Florida will not only have the opportunity to own and afford a brand new home, they’ll also be able to take advantage of the veteran's benefits and savings they deserve.

“The [Highland Homes] staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and guided me through every step of the process...I recommend Highland Homes to every military service member who wants a flawless buying experience and good treatment.쳌 - Jose M., a Highland Homes homeowner

Tax Exemption and Savings

Did you know that Florida has numerous ways to ensure that veterans have a place to call home? In fact, Florida does a tremendous job so veterans can truly afford the homes they purchase. Eligible resident veterans with a VA certified service-connected disability of 10% or greater are entitled to $5,000 in tax exemption with proper documentation. Veterans who call their Florida property home, have been honorably discharged, and have a service-connected permanent and total disability are entitled to complete homestead exemption. In addition, our beautiful state does not collect a personal income tax, so veterans have more flexibility and more money in their pockets when building the home of their dreams.

Central Florida Loves Veterans

While each region of Florida possesses a distinctive set of characteristics, there are two cities that are among the most veteran friendly cities in the United States. Tampa and Orlando rank among the top ten cities to have the lowest veteran unemployment rates, ongoing job opportunities, top cities for recreation and best healthcare networks in the state. Our new neighborhoods throughout Central Florida are built within supportive environments and surrounded by recreation and entertainment for your peace of mind.
