KatieBlue,
I am starting the search around the Ft. Eustis area as well. A couple of places I've found search on the web to be outside the traditional sources are
1) Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN.com) v7.0 - which is the Automated Housing Referral Network sponosored by the Department of Defense for military folks relocation [found an affordable place outside of Ft. Lewis in a golf course community and worked with my landlord directly..great find!] and
2) www.hotpads.com - It's a mega-search engine and will search major realtor databases, craigslist, trulia, zillow, etc. all at once AND map them for you (I'm visual so it helps). Once you id the place, search the address under google too. If you run across price differences from multiple listings, make sure you communicate that to the person (there's lots of scamming going on on the internet through housing searching).

As far as when to start your search, as a manager of my own rental property, I usually can't tell folks if my properties are available until 30 days out. One reason is because the lease usually requires them to notify me 30 days out if they're moving, and some folks go month-to-month at the end of the lease. However, that's not to say you can't start sending emails and asking the questions.

Default Avoid base housing

I would avoid military housing at all costs.

It is privatized housing that is run by a contractor.

The housing office staff on Langley are very cunning. One resident went through a lot with the maintenance and office staff, trying to get things fixed with both the office staff and maintenance playing games and never really fixing anything.

The spouse finally became fed up with being toyed with and decided to spill the beans about housing staff games.

You are right to avoid Langley military housing. Private housing is will save you a lot of headaches.

As a lifetime resident of the Peninsula and a military relocation specialist, I am quite familiar with the new housing that LAFB has to offer. Langley's new housing is the Bethel Manor Housing on Big Bethel Road. One phase is complete and the second phase is now being built. There will be 900 new homes. The local public mls website is another great tool to locate homes for rent or purchase...hrmls.com.

Hello...my husband is recently stationed in the Oyster Point/Yorktown area. He is in an extended stay type of hotel but needs to find a nice, safe, rental for 6 months to a year. He only needs one bedroom since our family will be staying in Texas. He would love to find a furnished garage apartment or cottage in the area. Could you help us find something?
