Specialized Housing

Making a permanent change of station or PCS move means you’ll have to find a new place to live. You and your family will have a number of housing options to consider. You may want to live on the installation, rent a home off base or buy a home. Your options are influenced by a variety of things such as availability of housing, location and family size. Before you decide where to build your nest, make sure to learn about all of your available alternatives. Then you can weigh the information and make the choice that’s right for you and your family.
