Rental home shopping is tough, especially for an off season move! But would-be renters often have a better chance of finding some appealing choices near big bases, because they have so many more military families coming and going.

Fort Sam Houston, Joint Base San Antonio fits that description perfectly! As one of the largest military installations, there is plenty of PCS action. Renters will find options in popular cities such as San Antonio, Cibolo, and New Braunfels.

This week, we're featuring four rental homes at various rental prices to kick off your PCS research for a move to Fort Sam Houston JBSA.

Don’t expect the standard rental home amenities (or lack thereof) in this home. The new tenants will be thrilled to find updated features throughout the house. Stainless appliances, master soaking tub, fireplace, and unique arch architecture are just a few of the highlights.

Four bedrooms and four bathrooms are quite accommodating to larger families and for those who often have out of town guests. The room dedicated to an office setting could also flex for other options, including a playroom or additional guest space.

The property is located in North San Antonio, within the sought after gated community, Mountain Lodge. Tenants have access to swimming pools and activities within the recreation center.

Ranch style homes are so much easier to move in and out of! Your movers will thank you, and if you’re executing a Personally Procured Move (PPM) this year, your own back will thank you too. A solid 1600 square feet of space stretches from one end of the home to other, incorporating three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen with new appliances.

Location is one of the best features about the home. A quiet street is situated near plenty of playground, court space, and rec trails in Pletz County Park. Yet, Fort Sam Houston JBSA and major interstates are less than three miles away. If walkable schools are desired, Bella Cameron Academy is nearby.

With a mid-December move in date, new tenants could be sitting comfy and cozy in their new house before Christmas.
