We've all heard the news about base housing issues but news seems to be scattered and inconsistent. i have to say that, being actively involved with the Fort Meade real estate market and working frequently with families who live in base housing, I have heard far more good than bad. Not to negate the issue because families HAVE been horribly effected by health issues related to mold at Fort Meade and other military bases. And having that happen even once, with something SO preventable is absolutely unacceptable.
What we're doing here is preparing a running log of any information that we see on the issue, how it is in the news and steps that are being taken to make things right. Please, please feel free to share in the comments your experience with base housing, good or bad. We want to hear from you!
