When you or a loved one is in the military, moves can happen very quickly and often when you least expect them. For this reason, it's a good idea to have the right help on your side. Fortunately, there are military relocation professionals and military real estate agents who know just how to help you plan your move, even if you don't have much time.

If you've never worked with one of these professionals before, strongly consider it for your next move. Military relocation real estate agents offer so many great benefits that you'll wonder how you ever made a move without them.

Video Tours

Most military real estate agents understand that service personnel are typically on a much more advanced or sped-up timeline than the average home buyer.

For that reason, they are very adept at finding ways to help you pick a great home, even if you can't physically be there in person.

Most military relocation agents offer video tours and/or Skype tours to help you see your potential new home. They also typically provide plenty of pictures and other information you'll need to make a buying decision even if you can't see the home for yourself.


As a military member, you have many resources available to you. These include things like financial planning workshops and classes and even counseling sessions to help individual members of your family deal with the stress of relocation.

A military relocation agent will be very familiar with all of these resources and can show you how to take advantage of any of the ones you need. With this professional on your side, you can simply mention a need or a concern, and your agent will typically have information on the necessary resource to help you with that issue.


Not only do military real estate agents have connections to helpful resources, they also typically have connections to great lenders. And, in many cases, they are familiar with lenders who offer special discounts or rates to service members. This can help you to get a great deal on your new home.

While a non-military real estate agent may be able to help you secure a loan, a military-specific one will likely help you get an even better loan at an even faster pace.

When you're in the military or are part of a military family, your needs are unique. That's why you need a unique relocation agent to help you through the process. So, don't settle for a general agent when you could have one with specific skills, training, and connections to meet your needs.
