Housing: Automated Housing Referral Network

May. 10, 2010 - 01:37PM   |   Last Updated: May. 10, 2010 - 01:37PM  |  

AHRN is an online housing referral network sponsored by the Defense Department that connects military renters with a wide range of rental properties in the area near military installations in the continental U.S.

The network now operates at all continental U.S. Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard installations, and at 17 Air Force sites in Europe. Plans are to add 16 Army locations in Europe and four Air Force locations in the Pacific by the end of 2010.

Service members can search for listings that fall within a 20 percent range of the Basic Allowance for Housing rates in a given area. The site also includes listings for privatized housing. Other search criteria for properties include: the number of miles from the installation, pets allowed, rent range, availability date, type of structure and whether the military housing office has inspected the property.

Civilian property managers post and maintain their own listings, and are monitored by local military housing offices.

The service is free for service members and for property managers. It's a tool that can help military members find housing in advance, which can help make "door-to-door" moves a smoother process.
