Examine all your options carefully to choose the best housing solution for your needs.
Most housing issues in the military happen with PCS. Military personnel and their families have a variety of housing choices when PCS orders come through. You can buy a home, rent an apartment or house, or choose to live on base if there is not a waiting list.
A good place to start once you receive your orders is the housing office at your new duty station. The staff can provide information on temporary housing, your new communities housing market, and housing allowances. You can also check out this guide to help you make a thoughtful decision.
