Trying to house hunt or find an apartment when you live in another town, state or country can be an overwhelming experience. Your first stop should be the housing office of the Army base you are PCSing to. Not only should they have a list of local apartments and realtors, they will also have a list of places you need to avoid based on how they treated Army families in the past. Also, if you plan to live off base, you must obtain “permission” first through this office.
Do not hesitate to try to meet other Army wives and find out about the area before you move. There are many message boards out there where you can meet other Army wives before you even move. Not only will you find out about the area, you could potentially make a new friend!
On Post Housing:
All About Your New Post (SITES):
Automatic Referral Housing Network houses on-post and off-post housing listings.
25% of the off-post listings are apartments, 45% are houses. Many of the landlords who post listings are either retired, affiliated or active duty.
You can also search for the area’s Chamber of Commerce and then find the names of realtors in the Business Directory. This is also a great way to get information packets about your new home.
