Searching for Your New Home? Here’s Where to Start
January 18, 2019
Searching for a new home can be stressful, but military housing makes things much easier. Military housing is one of the most important benefits of military life: it secures a safe, comfortable home for you and your family, eliminates the need for difficult credit checks or expensive deposits, takes away the bulk of the financial burden of rent and even allows you to enjoy community-wide events and activities created especially for military housing residents. If you’re ready to get started searching for your new military housing home, here’s where to start.
Start your search by state. Begin by searching all the military housing communities in your state. Sites like Military Homes Today allow you to browse by state and view all of the communities in your area, which allows you to narrow down your search only to communities that are convenient to you.
Decide the size of home you’ll need. If you’re searching for a home for a whole family, you’ll need a much bigger place than if you’re just looking for a home for yourself. Narrow down your search based on the size of the home you’ll need.
Decide if you want a home on base. Some military housing homes are situated right on base, while others are located nearby. Decide how important proximity to base is before you make your decision.
Find pet-friendly communities. Do you have a dog or cat (or another furry friend)? Then you’ll need a pet-friendly community. Make sure to narrow down your results before you schedule a tour.
Consider the wait list. Many military housing options have a wait list, depending on the current availability. Take this into consideration when you’re searching for your new home.
