Homestead Heroes: Covering HOA fees for Those Who Defend, Serve, and Care for Our Country

Homestead, a new residential community, located northeast of San Antonio, in Schertz, Texas, is now offering home ownership incentives to military families and veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, first aid responders, healthcare professionals, and teachers in the San Antonio area.

Happening now, and continuing for a limited time, Homestead will cover 100% of the cost of HOA fees for two (2) years for all community members who defend, serve, and care for our country. HOA fees at Homestead are $75 per month.

“It’s called the ‘Homestead Heroes’ program,” says Suzanne Maddalon, VP of Marketing for Freehold Communities, ” it is a way of offering our appreciation for what these everyday heroes do to support our communities.”

Homestead is a Freehold Communities development. With office in Austin, Texas, they apply a uniquely distinct Vital Community™ approach to modern community living with an emphasis placed on Healthy Living, Engagement, Connectivity, Stewardship, and a Design_Forward Philosophy.

Unbeatable lifestyle amenities are at the center of all Freehold properties and the social heart of the Homestead community in Schertz, Texas is Homestead Commons.

Homestead Commons includes a state-of-the-art fitness center; manicured lawns for impromptu outdoor activities; resort style pool with splash pad; open air pavilion with a fireplace and grill stations; and, natural outdoor play activities with engaging play structures.

The community features nearly 5 miles of hiking and jogging trails, ponds and parks; gathering spaces throughout the community; and direct access to Deerhorn Park with a Pet Park and a dog agility course.

To make community living even more convenient, Homestead families are soon slated for an additional treat. “The Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District (SCUCISD) has plans to develop an elementary school within the Homestead neighborhood,” Suzanne explains, “so we are really striving to create a vibrant neighborhood with young families who can walk their kids to school every day among connected neighbors.”

“Including Teachers among the everyday heroes in our communities is very important to us. Here is our opportunity to honor many of the folks upon whom we all depend.” She adds, “We hope that military families, firefighters, law enforcement, first aid responders, and health care professionals in San Antonio the area will reach out and take advantage of this program. It’s a heartfelt thank you from us to them.”
