MilitaryByOwner Expands Options for Military Housing in California

Military Housing California

We recently received a suggestion to add the US Coast Guard Air Station, located in beautiful San Francisco, California to the list of base page selections.  While researching the Air Station, we noticed several Coast Guard facilities all within close range of each other.  Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco is located 13 miles south of downtown at the San Francisco International Airport in an unincorporated area of San Mateo County.  The cities of San Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame and San Mateo are all nearby as well as the East Side neighborhood and the area known as South San Francisco.   Air Station San Francisco has been located adjacent to the San Francisco International Airport since 1941 and since that time its primary mission has remained unchanged, namely, maritime Search and Rescue along 300 miles of coastline from Point Conception to Fort Bragg.   You will find Coast Guard San Francisco on our map of Military Homes in California. Has Your Dream Retirement Property

Now that visions of sugar-plums have cleared from your head, maybe it is time to dream about your future.  Is retirement on the horizon or something you desire to plan for now. Where do you envision spending the lazy days of retirement? How about a 17-acre horse farm in Kentucky, an acre lot on the 7th hole of a golf course in North Carolina or a waterfront lot in sunny Florida?

MilitaryByOwner Tips for Selling Your Home in the Winter

Selling Your Home in the Winter

As winter approaches most thoughts turn to the holidays, festive meals and sitting by the fireplace, so if you have a home for sale advertised on MilitaryByOwner, how do you get potential buyers to come out in the cold?

The great news is there are fewer homes on the market during the winter, making it an ideal time to let your home shine. Here are tips to make your house the one that buyers want to call home.

Curb Appeal – We have discussed the importance of first impressions in our articles “Demystifying “For Sale by Owner” and “The Dos and Don’ts of Real Estate Photography” and while most people think curb appeal revolves around green grass and blooming trees, this is only one piece of the puzzle. While winter landscape is rather barren in the colder areas, it is still important to take a critical eye of how your home makes its first impression. If you live in an area with snow, clear a path to your walkway and front door. Remove dead leaves from under shrubs and pull out expired flowers that cast a brown hue over your planter beds. If you have your home on the market during the holidays, consider putting up simple decorations that will highlight the architecture of your home, but be sure to remove decorations in a timely fashion as well.

Our customer requests for new base page additions on are coming in fast and furious of late, with California proving to be one of the more popular states we are receiving requests from.  One of the most recent requests that we have added as a California base page selection for people to find and advertise homes for sale or rent is titled Fresno National Guard.  The California Air National Guard Base in Fresno is home to the 144th Fighter Wing (FW) as well as the nearby Fresno National Guard Armory.  The 144th FW utilizes the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft and provides air defense protection to California with its area of operation stretching from Oregon down to the Mexican border.  This facility is based at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport which is in eastern Fresno, CA.  The title of the airport bears the name Yosemite, however, the facility approximately 60 miles south of Yosemite National Park on California State Route 41.  Downtown Fresno is only 5 miles east of the base, and the city of Clovis, CA is about 6 miles north of the base.

Fresno is located in Central California’s San Joaquin Valley and is #1 in agricultural production in the nation, renowned for the amazing variety, quality, and quantities of produce yields.  It is the largest metropolitan area in the San Joaquin Valley and as such reigns as the business, financial, cultural and entertainment capital of that area.  Average winter temperatures are generally high 30’s to the high 50’s (Fahrenheit) and summer temperatures average the low 60’s to high 90’s (Fahrenheit).  Fresno and nearby Clovis, CA are considered the gateway to the Sierra National Forest  and it is a relatively short drive to visit one of the amazing  nearby national parks, to include Yosemite National Park,  Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park.   If you are looking for housing or homes near the Fresno National Guard base, or wish to advertise your home in the area, we welcome you to do so using  If you have a military installation you would like to see us add to our database, please let us know.
