Military Relocation-Welcome To The Pentagon

The PentagonAs someone who has moved all around the world with the military the first few days after the PCS orders arrive the questions about housing, schools and shopping can lead to sleepless nights and the big question “where are we going to live?”

If the orders in your hand mean you are heading to the Pentagon then let me welcome you to the neighborhood! Most military personal headed to the base often choose to live in Northern Virginia close to public transportation and the famous "slug" lines.  Whether you are going to buy or rent there are plenty of neighborhood options for you to choose from. The first thing you need to do is check the 2008 BAH rates for the Pentagon. Pentagon rates fall in the Washington District (DC053) and you can use zip code 22152 as an example.

If you are thinking of buying a home, the current Northern Virginia market provides you the chance to find a good value on a home closer to the the Pentagon in Alexandria and Fairfax County.  Many military personal are dusting off their VA Certificate of Eligibility (remember that green certificate) and checking with local lenders about the options available to use their VA loans. If buying is the plans make sure you have talked to a lender prior to making your house hunting trip. Knowing what monthly payment you are comfortable with is important for looking at homes in neighborhoods that meet your price criteria.

Once you have determined your price range you have the option to start your search on-line to get an idea of the type of homes that are within your price range.  There are a number of neighborhoods in Northern Virginia that have always been popular with military families stationed at the Pentagon including Kingstowne, Lorton and Farilington. If you have school age children starting with information on local schools through the Fairfax County or Alexandria City sites or the Great Schools website will also assist you in determining the right neighborhood for your family.

We just received orders for the Pentagon.  If we want military base housing, which base should we look at?

Posted by Jeannina over 9 years ago

Jeannina-there isn't any "base" housing for the Pentagon.  However you may check with your branch of the service and determine whether you would be eligible for housing at any of the local installations such as Fort Belvoir, Fort Meyer or Bolling as examples.

You've been a strong supporter of military families throughout your real estate career and it continues to show.
