- List their own properties for rent to other military families
- List their homes for sale by owner (FSBO) to other military members
- Contact installation housing offices
AHRN is not currently available at all installations but the phased program is adding new installations every month. Check the AHRN website to see if your next assignment is an AHRN base and check out other features to assist you in your home search.
