Housing in the Local Community
The Housing Management Office (HMO) provides all DoD personnel with personalized services to assist in locating suitable housing in the local community. Although moving is sometimes stressful, it can also be an exciting opportunity to live off base and experience a new location. The HMO will assist you every step of the way to help you find your new home in the local community.

Housing Services
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving. The government housing team will provide you the latest information on the local housing situation and offer complete referral services and relocation assistance to make sure you find a quality place to live.

Support services range from helping members understand their lease agreements and the necessity for a military release clause to assisting in resident and landlord dispute resolution, among many others.

The HMO partners with landlords, realtors and property managers to make sure you receive the most current information about the local housing market. The HMO also monitors housing units offered for rent to the military community.

Community Housing Units
Hanscom AFB is located in Middlesex County and is nestled between Lincoln, Lexington, Concord and Bedford Massachusetts. Although Hanscom AFB is a great place to live, work and play, it has the second highest cost of living area in the country and affordable housing can be difficult to find.

The median home price in Middlesex County is approximately $399,900. The average monthly rent for a two bedroom is $1,874.00, a three bedroom is $2,250.00 and a four bedroom is $2,900.00. Rental prices drop significantly the further away you move from the Hanscom AFB area but the commuting time is a factor all personnel should consider.
