Congratulations on getting orders to paradise! If youâ€™re thinking about buying a home off base so that your BAH goes toward an investment, there are a few neighborhoods to keep in mind. Keep in mind, though, that as real estate agents, we can't recommend one neighborhood over another.
Many folks stationed at Hurlburt Field live in Navarre, Mary Esther and Fort Walton Beach, which are all within 15 miles. To the east, of Hurlburt Mary Esther and Fort Walton Beach feature all of the shopping and eating amenities that a typical urban area offer and they are also primarily older neighborhoods. To the west, Navarre, and Holley by the Sea offers an alternative with many homes being ten years old or less, with lots of new construction. All of these neighborhoods offer relatively quick access to the beach.
