DECEMBER 24, 2014, WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy, along with the other military branches, has announced a new website, HOMES.mil, that is dedicated to helping service members, Department of Defense (DoD) civilians and their families with home finding services.
The new DoD website provides a vehicle for community housing landlords and property managers to create and update their profiles and listings.
HOMES.mil is a secure website that allows property managers, landlords and service members a means to market their properties. Those using the website are able to control their listings, and upload photos and floors plans to the website.
“The Navy has worked alongside the other services to offer the best housing options to service members around the world,” said Greg Wright, Navy Housing program director. “HOMES.mil modernizes the way Navy Housing provides information on local rental properties and improves the Housing Service Centers’ customer service to Sailors and their families while helping to alleviate some of the burden and stress of PCS.”
Landlords and property managers, who have worked with the Housing Service Centers (HSCs) in the past, can create a login for HOMES.mil and are able to access their previously listed properties. Once a landlord or property manager creates a login, they can manage their property listing. These listings can include a list of amenities, photos and additional information to assist service members in making informed housing decisions.
“The Navy is focused on assisting Sailors and their families in finding safe, suitable and affordable housing wherever they choose to live. HOMES.mil, in conjunction with the HSC’s professional housing staff, will provide an improved experience for our customers,” said Wright.
HOMES.mil offers a secure site for landlords and property managers wishing to list their properties for DoD service members and government civilians stationed near military installations. HOMES.mil is integrated with the HSC’s management software, allowing a streamlined experience for service members looking for community housing.
HOMES.mil is now available for landlords and property managers to begin uploading information on properties they want to list. On Dec. 29, the HOMES.mil website will be available to all service members and their families to find housing. The HOMES.mil website address is https://www.homes.mil.
