Things to Determine Before Talking with a Realtor: 1. Know the amount of your Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA), which is based on rank. 2. Do you want a Japanese-style or Western-style house? (Do you want an American oven or refrigerator in your house, tatami rooms, etc.?)

  • 3.

    How many bedrooms would work for your family?

  • 4.

    How close do you want to be to base?

  • 5.

    What transportation will you use to get to base? Do you want to be

close to a train station? Will you be getting 2 cars because then you need 2 parking spaces available at your house? Note: Two parking spaces/cars is very rare. Most people use the train, a scooter or bike as a 2nd form of transportation. When living off-base, it is also best not to buy a larger car until you see the parking space(s) you will have—it may be tiny! 6. Do you have a dog or cat? This is somewhat limiting. Only townhouses on-base allow dogs, and many houses off-base do not allow pets. But with a little time and luck, you should be able to find an off-base house that allows pets and even one with a small fenced yard.
