    So with the wait list for housing hubby wants to look off base , we dont want to have a long commute so where would a good place be?

    How much are the average utilities around the area?

    Stafford, Woodbridge, Manassas, Dale City are all good areas and very short commute.
    Utilities vary but anywhere from $100-$200 depending on time of year.

    Are you looking to rent or buy?

    My Dad is in Quantico. I interned there one summer when he lived in Fredericksburg, so I used to communte with him. It was about 30 minutes to get to work. Great area, lots of shops, restaurants, etc.

    Did you want an apartment, house or town home?
    You may have to hit the classifieds or just drive around when you get here.
    There is a place for rent down the street from me (I'm about 5 miles from Quantico in Woodbridge). I can PM you the street if you'd like (I don't remember house# off hand).

    I've also noticed several rental places in and around the area. I'm not sure where they are advertised. There are also a bunch of apartment complexes within the area that are all currently accepting new residents.

    well considering hubby doesnt want a small "waiting house" while we are waiting for base housing i guess we want a house. We dont have too much time to come down and look so this may be harder than what we need it . And with another baby on the way I dont know if an apartment would be enough room

    Just PM'd the street.

    You have to consider BAH as well. If he is officer you should be good, but enlisted BAH isn't super great, but you may be limited to apartments in some areas.

    You'll have more of a problem finding a place within BAH than just finding a place.
    Anywhere is pretty much good, there is no crime really.. some areas have more crime than others but overall, not a whole lot.
