Moving to San Angelo

I have an assignment to Goodfellow AFB for training in July-August 2014 time frame and I am having a hell of time locating a place for my family to live. I know I am really early on planning but that is just me...I like to be a step ahead.

So is anyone from around this area? Specifically, does anyone know of a reputable realty company or renting agency they have dealt with that they would recommend? Anyone here own rental properties in the area?

I have searched google and found some realty agencies and also checked military sites (AHRN, militarybyowner.com) and no luck yet.

I need 3 bedrooms, 1+ bathrooms within 20 minutes of Goodfellow AFB. If pets are accepted, awesome. If not, I have family that is on the way that will keep her for the time that I will be there.

Thanks!

heh, i hear don't live on the numbered streets, only the named ones. pretty much anywhere in town is within 20 minutes of the base. i live on the south end of town and work on the north and only takes me ~14minutes on the loop to get

a guy i went to jr high and high school with is a realtor, i'll pm you his info.

and good luck on pricing, w/ the recent influx of oilfield workers, it is hard to find a place for a reasonable price.

No luck yet. I still have about 2.5 months before I move but would like to get something locked down. Locking at starting the lease on 1Aug. I'll pm you.

Anyone else got any info on rentals out that way?

did you try realtor.com, they also have a nice app where you can circle the area you would like to be in. you can also try city-data.com to get a "feel" for the area your looking at based on some statistics

Just checking to see if you got anything yet? San Angelo is part of the oil boom going on in West Texas. Very hard to find places right now. Good thing, this past weekend they got some rain and won't be running out of water in about a year. I lived and worked(PoliceOfficer) in San Angelo for about 6 years, feel free to PM me if you have some questions about the area. I now live in Sonora, about an hour South of San Angelo.

Hey everyone, sorry for the long break of no responses.

So we were able to secure base housing. I had to wait til 15Jun (60 days out from RNLTD) and got put on wait list for base housing and 3 days later they had us a 2 bed, 1 bath house secured.

Not ideal for us, but doable and it is on base and secure for the family. When we populated on the waitlist we were 10 of 16, but they gave us the place...kinda weird but they said other people on the list ahead of us may not be there anytime soon and not the same rank etc.

Anyway, THANKs TACOMA WORLD and everyone that posted and pm'd me with info. I really appreciate the help! See ya'll in a month!

I'm living in Carlsbad, New Mexico this summer and do a lot of work near Midland/Odessa. I am one of those oilfield boom workers (at least for the summer), and I can tell you first hand that rent out here can be pretty outrageous. Best of luck with everything. One thing I can say is that there are some pretty damn good sunrises/sunsets out here.

Yea rent is absolutely crazy out there. I would find a rare gem every now and then but never around the times we needed it. We got base housing which is what I wanted anyway. I feel much more safe with my family living on base.

Plus there are parks within a hundred yards, dog parks, running paths, etc. to keep everyone entertained.

I'm in the 315th also, 1N0, and teach in the officer's course. We'll probably run into each other.

Bummer about Tech... I missed it my first year too, just gave me more motivation to study and make it my second year. It's a tough one to make.

I am enlisted so it'll have to be a hall way bump!

I will pose a question to you though, when I move out there, is the squadron willing to let me borrow a body or two to help me move our stuff into our house on base?

I'm enlisted too...there's actually quite a few enlisted folks that teach in the officer's course. I taught the enlisted course for about 3 years and then got moved over.

As for some moving help, it'll all depend on the schedule. Check with your supervisor when you in-process, let him/her know you culd really use some help and you might be able to scare up a body or two. I wouldn't bank on it, but we help each other out when we're able. PM me when you get a chance with your email, we can talk back and forth off-line without cluttering up the boards.
