The first step in any relocation is to get your orders! Once you know the area you will PCS (Permanent Change of Duty Station) to, you can begin your research phase. For housing on Hunter, the sooner you notify them of your move the better off you will be. If you are looking for housing outside the Hunter gate, let the loan process begin. You should get a certificate of VA eligibility (if using VA) and get a loan pre approval. Once you have your pre approval, you will know what range to look for housing. Keep in mind, the amount you are told is not necessarily the amount you should spend. Look at your budget and determine a monthly mortgage payment you can be comfortable paying. If you have children, you should look at local schools to determine the areas that you would prefer to live in. If children or school are not concerns, you can start looking at available housing in your comfort range.
During your online home search, you may find that you need more help or information. This is where I can help. I can take more pictures of your home's of interest, give you a relocation package to help your move go smoothly, give you market knowledge so you can make an informed decision on price, negotiate on your behalf, and assist you through all the paperwork. For more information on the process, see finding YOUR home?
