From: Housing Service Center Sigonella Housing Service Center (HSC) Sigonella would like to take this opportunity to announce a new web-based program that will help military service members, Department of Defense (DOD) civilian employees and their families search for off-base homes. Homes.mil will be available for use starting 05 January 2015 (Internet address is https://www.homes.mil).
This new website will enable personnel executing Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders to search for available economy housing in their current or next duty station. At any given time as long as Internet connectivity is available, customers will be able to search and view property information in any duty stations operated by the U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Location, amenities, number of bedrooms, type of home and monthly rent are some criteria's that can be used to refine your search.
Other important Homes.Mil information: - Homes.mil is a new official DOD website dedicated to helping service members and DOD civilians on home finding services. The site will enable HSC staff, landlords, and property managers to find and share vital information about non-discriminatory rental listing. - In CONUS, the website provides a free online forum for landlords, owners and property managers to add and manage their property listings.
For OCONUS overseas installations, HOMES.mil sites and information are managed via the respective Housing Service Centers. - Homes.mil is a DOD controlled website that provides limited information to the public. Only registered users can obtain listing addresses and landlord contact information, and all user data is stored in accordance with DOD Information Assurance requirements. - Homes.mil provides mailing address, DSN, commercial phone numbers, and the ability to contact Housing Service Centers via email.
Homes.mil will modernize the way DOD provides list of local rental properties to service members before their arrival. This effort improves the Housing Offices' service to our customers and alleviates the burden and stress associated with PCS moves. - Homes.mil features search and display options and will allow users to save listings, view photos, and research housing areas. The website allows users to compare up to four different properties at one time. If you have any questions regarding this new web-based housing referral program, please call the Sigonella housing office at DSN (314)624-4311.
