Did you know there are people trained to be Military Relocation Professionals (MRP) in real estate? This person is specialized in working with current and retired military service members.
According to the National Association of REALTORS®, “the MRP certification program educates REALTORS® about working with U.S. service members and their families and veterans to find the housing solutions that best suit their needs and to take full advantage of available benefits and support.”
Using a MRP will provide you with special tools and resources other REALTORS® or real estate agents do not have access to. They also have more in-depth knowledge of VA loans (to the extent their expertise allows, you should always consult a loan specialist) and know what it takes to find the perfect housing situation for a military service member.
We actually have a MRP in our family of NextHomies, Garth Vinson. Not only does he carry this designation behind his name, but he has served his time in the military. What better way to get the right real estate service as a member of the military than to get it from someone who understands first hand your needs!
