Welcome To The Land Of The Sun!

 

       

So you have orders to MCAS Yuma or the Army’s YPG.  NOW WHAT?  

Things to consider when house hunting in Yuma.

  1.  What are the BAH rates this year?    Use 85365 when calculating BAH.
  2. Live on Base or Off?
    1. Base Housing Office for MCAS YUMA   Put your name on the list, ASAP no matter if you have not decided base or town.
    2. Floor Plans for Base housing for MCAS Yuma.  (Little Secret)  Lincoln’s website is not correct for the floor plans.  But this link is!!
    3. Military side of Base Housing Office for MCAS Yuma  
    4. Again, Get ON THE LIST.  Just in case.  Cover your bases.
    5. YPG Housing 928.328.2031 or 2177
    6. YPG MWR
  3. Renting in town?

    2. Call Julie Johnson and get a good understanding on how in town rentals work.  It is not like anywhere else you have lived.  She is happy to explain.
    3. Consider the cost of utilities.  Electric in the summer may shock you.  Add in the pool electric and this is something to consider in your house budget.  I have a list of utilities on my site for your convenience.

  5. Schools in Yuma
    1. Public, Private, Charter?  There are many.  Yuma is open enrollment so you have a little bit easier time not being locking into an area based on the schools.  Check out my Scholarships Page.
    2. Yuma School Liaison is AMAZING!  Call her!
      1. She runs a back to school fair in August every year at the Youth Center.  Tons of Youth Activities come out and share what they have going on.  Plus there is a bunch of free stuff and school supplies.
