 Orders to Ft. Bragg, when can I start looking for a home?

Congratulations on your orders for Ft. Bragg! We are one of the largest military installations and you will find there is a lot to do here!
Your first step towards buying a home would be to find a Realtor to help you through the process! You should find someone who is familiar with the area and hopefully someone who has some experience in dealing with the military so they know some of the challenges you might face during your move.
Once you find an agent they will start you on a path to finding your home. Usually the next step is getting your financing strategy set up so you know exactly what you want to spend and what type of loan will you be using. This is a crucial step to the home buying process and should be done as quickly as possible in the event there is a problem that you did not know about. This will give you time to work that out.
This period before you actually move here is more like a fact finding mission. This time is for you to get an idea of what you want in a home. Two story or a ranch? Single car garage or double? Larger yard or closer to post with shorter drive time? What schools do you want to have your children attend? Where will your spouse be working? These are all things to consider when moving to the Ft. Bragg area. Once you know an idea of what you want your agent can send you listings to look at so you can have an idea of what homes are available in that area and your price range. To get started, feel free to visit my website at www.HomesForSaleAroundFayetteville.com. Keep in mind, homes in the Fayetteville area are constantly selling and new ones come on the market daily.
Getting orders to Ft. Bragg will be exciting for you! Enjoy your stay once you get here!
