Hello, I will be PCSing to HAFB soon and am looking for insight onto where I should or shouldn't consider off base housing. I have small children and no pets and don't mind a drive but anything that takes more then 30 minutes would probably be to far. I'd appreciate any suggestions/advice you can give. Thanks : )
Lorrie- When my husband and I first got here (4+ years ago) we got a map of Alamogordo from the Airman and Family Readiness Center and went around to all of the realty companies and asked for their list of rental properties. We then mapped them out on our map and drove around to look at them. If we were interested in seeing inside, then we went back to the realty company to have someone show us. Some of the realty companies give you keys and let you go around and look on your own but others have to show you the houses. Anyways, it gave my husband and I a great chance to learn our way around the town and find a house to rent. We had to be patient as we hit a lot of 'duds' before we found our house but we were able to rent a 3 bed 2 bath nice house for $950/month. We have been here a long time, so let me know if you have any questions or need any help!
