Exciting things are happening in 2015!
2014 was another successful year for AHRN.com. We underwent many positive changes – privatizing in January, celebrating 10 years in June, increasing registered users, and launching new features to make YOUR property marketing easier. We matched thousands of properties with the military community, site traffic is at an all-time high and 2015 is going to be even more exciting!
Recently, some people have received an email from HOMES.mil and we would like to set the record straight: AHRN.com continues to operate independently and is not associated with HOMES.mil or the email that was sent regarding HOMES.mil.
- Is AHRN.com going away?
No, AHRN.com continues to provide landlords/property managers/real estate professionals with a efficient and effective resource to market properties to the military community, with more improvements coming in 2015.
- Is AHRN.com associated with HOMES.mil?
No. AHRN.com is not associated with HOMES.mil.
- Why did AHRN.com give the Department of Defense (DoD) my email and listing information?
As a part of the contract that Runzheimer held with the Navy up until Dec 2013, we were required to copy the data in the system at the time (November 2013) and provide it to them in a safe and secure manner.
- Since privatizing in January 2014, has any data been provided to the DoD or any other sources?
No, all account and listing information entered from Jan 1, 2014 on has not been shared with any source outside AHRN.com.
- Does AHRN.com deactivate users accounts every 35 days?
No, never. Every account and listing that has been established since 2004 is still in the system ready for accessing/use.
- Does AHRN.com require password changes every 60 days?
No. It is up to the user to change their password as needed.
- Does AHRN.com require a 15 character password?
No, AHRN.com requires a 6 character password of the users choosing, which is encrypted in our database for security.
- Is AHRN.com’s listing data up to date?
Yes, AHRN.com currently has 40,000+ active listings. These listings have all been entered by users (many of whom have been trusted members for years) and are kept up-to-date via our automated listing update process.
- Does AHRN.com serve all branches of the military?
Yes! AHRN.com serves over 500 bases around the world and includes active duty and reserve Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines Corps, Coast Guard. It also serves the housing needs of National Guard and Veterans as well.
- What kind of housing does AHRN.com include?
All housing options. AHRN.com’s database of homes near military bases include a variety of homes to choose from:-
– On-base/post military housing
– Off-base/post homes for rent (houses, apartments, condos, etc.)
– Homes for sale

AHRN.com continues to be the leading housing resource to the military community around the world, providing landlords and property managers with a safe, easy to use, and effective resource for reaching this market.

I'm glad you made clear about Homes.mil! Didn't know who they were!
Wishing you and your staff a Merry Christmas. I look forward to the updates that are coming. It’s a pleasure working with AHRN to bring more choices to our troops.
Happy Holidays to you as well!
I am glad you mentioned something about HOMES.mil. I was very concerned about the email I got from them saying that my homes had been migrated over to their platform. It clearly insinuated that AHRN no longer existed. In addition, when you type in their website link, it automatically comes up as “unsafe” by any device I have accessed it with.
Just thought you should know. I have been very happy with AHRN and am happy to hear that you will still be serving the community in the same great way you always have.
All the best,
Dave P says
I have yet to access any ,mil website without getting the recommendation to ” not go there”, even invitations from local base leaders. It’s just the nature of the .mil beast.
THANK YOU for your email. I was wondering about that Homes.mil email. and did not answer to it.
I have enjoyed working with the AHRN. And thank you for provide me the source so I found many good tenants over the years.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
I also got the e-mail from HOMES.mil, and have not been able to access the site. When I try, the message is “This connection is Untrusted. Site’s identity can’t be verified.” Does anyone know if this is a legitimate operation?
Don – our understanding is that the email was sent by the Navy about the opening of their new listing site. AHRN.com has no affiliation with this new site so we can not verify the email or links.
Donna Wilson says
Don – the site is legitimate but was not actually up and running. Please try again and you should be able to access if interested.
Gerry Leary says
I to got Email from Home.mil back in Dec. Have tried several time to locat their sit with no luck. I too am pleased with AHRN but I need a new tenant soon so will try other aveneus. Homes has the moth of Feb then I will never go back looking for them.
All the Best
Gerry – if there is anything we can do to assist you with your AHRN.com listing, please let us know. 🙂
Millie Dent says
I’m not sure what has happened; but, I have NOT received many responses from military family members looking for a place to live around Fort Knox, Kentucky. Over the past I have received emails from AHRN telling me that hundreds of military are expected to PCS into my community; but, nothing seems to happen. My Condo is still up for rent and I have paid the $24.95 two times now to have it showcased in their Gold package.
Millie – I’m sorry to hear that. We’ve been hearing that the summer PCS season was slower than normal this year for many our property managers. Have you contacted our property manager support?
