Military moms are used to having to uproot their families and relocating, and sometimes with very short notice. There are military housing websites and other resources available to help families find military homes for rent. Military bases have relocation managers, and once you learn that you will be moving, the relocation manager at the new base should be contacted as soon as possible.
When moving to a new location, military families should research the school districts in the area, and contact other military families that they may know who already live there. There are some social media sites for military families, and people often get information about available military homes in the area. Oftentimes, families can find military housing on base, but many of the bases in larger and more populated areas also have many off base housing options available.
There are some general tips for military families who are making a move. Experts say that military housing might be the best choice when your new base is in a small town. For larger towns, there are usually many off base housing choices available, and they may be better options for your family. Research on available housing options can be done quickly and easily online.
