Ft.Riley, KS??

So I just got my first assignment to Ft.Riley KS and I was praying some of you here knew something about the base.

Where is the best place to live? I know Manhattan, Junction City, etc are best distance wise. But where the heck do I find homes? I look on craigslist and a bunch of other sites, but its either a tiny trailor or a huge overly expensive house. There's no middle ground! I'm starting to get really anxious about it. We wanted to live on base but the housing list is several months long so thats not going to work.

Thats my main focus right now! Thanks for any help you can offer.

Re: Ft.Riley, KS??

  • What? Ha no, after 5 or 6 weeks of annoying lateness, it finally showed up! Right before my field training so that was a fun week+ with no showering!

  • Have fun at Riley!  My husband was stationed there for a few years.  I would google some realtors in the area.  I am sure they could help you out. 

    http://www.mathislueker.com/  Here is a website for one of them. 

    I also asked the First Sgts. Wife if she could point me in a direction about rental properties, etc. around that area.  I will let you know what she says when she gets back to me. 

    Good luck.  I hope this helped a little bit. 

    Here is there homepage in case you want to find out any other information.  http://www.riley.army.mil/

  • She is quick!  Hahaha! 

    Here are her recommendations;

    http://ahrn.com/   and Military by owner.  I hope this helps you out!

  • We are at Riley. I would highly suggest the AHRN site that Iz suggested. We live on base now, but we used that site to find the apartment complex we lived in before we moved on base. We lived in the Pebblebrook apartment complex in Manhattan. Not sure if you are looking for houses, apartments or townhouses, but Pebblebrok was nice and had both apts and townhomes. 

    Junction City has some nice places and is definitely closer to base, but Manhattan is bigger, so will have more options (about 15-20 mins from base). Depends on which you prefer!

    You can always PM me if you have any more questions!

  • Thanks so much for the responses! That AHRN site was great! I googled all sorts of stuff but there are so many crack websites out there, the good ones are hard to find sometimes.

    We found quite a few good leads on homes. So I'm not as anxious as the other day haha

     Thanks again ladies.

  •  I am in Riley as well.  If you need anyone to go drive by an area in Junction City to make sure it is what it is advertised.  We live in JC so we can be closer to R's work.  But it is a small town.  Let me know if you need help with anything
