EGLIN AFB, FL- BRAC Realignment-Fort Bragg-Booming Market

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with RE/MAX Southern Realty, Southern Resort

Eglin AFB is the largest AFB in the United States.  They have over 288,000 acres that they use for bombing range, Special Opps and Ranger training.  With the BRAC realignment Eglin is getting a new division from Fort Bragg.  They have just cleared off a few hundred acres to start building the new base. We are planning to have near 12,000 new troops by 2010.  They are also getting the new F-35. Crestview is the closest town to the new base and there is very affordable housing and plenty off it.  My office has a new subdivision going in called Freedom Walk designed just for our Military.  Homes are being built  with GREEN Construction and will priced in the $180,000 range.  Semper Paratus- always ready for your referrals.
