Andrea made some great points regarding the real estate side of things so I'm going to touch on some of the financing aspects that will come into play assuming that you're not paying cash.
I'm also going to assume that you'll take advantage of your VA benefits and use your entitlement to buy using a VA mortgage.
You can get a lot of the paper work done for your loan approval just fine via phone, fax and email before you get back state side. The primary concern is that an underwriter may not use your orders and instead require 30 days worth of pay stubs from your new station before allowing you to close on the loan.
Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

They arrived in time, however, to be present at settlement. The offer and contract can be done via DocuSign or Esign but there are a whole bunch of potential pitfalls that you should think through very carefully before you decide to proceed. My first advice would be to find a Buyer's Agent - you want somebody to work in your best interest, the listing agent is representing the seller ... How familiar are you with the area? The neighborhood? What if it turns out you don't like the highway or water tower or commercial business across the street from the house? Who will be doing your home inspection? If anything would turn out not be up to your standards what would you do?
You are essentially basing a very big decision on information you can find online and on the agent working in the seller's best interest .. I strongly suggest that you consider all your options - could you take your house hunting leave or make some temporary living arrangements? This is a huge step and I hope it all works out for you just fine but in the end you are looking for a home and many times we wont know until we've stepped in and looked around and made sure it feels right that we know that this is the one. Good luck!
