Off-post housing options include apartments, duplexes, townhouses, mobile homes, mobile home parks and single/double dwelling homes. Furnished apartments are very difficult to find and usually very expensive to rent.
Fort Polk is a medium cost of living area. There is a shortage of rental properties due to the influx of new service members, family members and civilian contractors to the installation. Although there are new houses and apartments going up every day, the availability cannot keep up with the demand. Houses can sell for $79,000-$300,000; rental property goes from $600-$1,700 a month.
Most landlords will require first and last month’s rent upfront and some may require you to pay a portion of utilities rather than you having a meter of your own. It is important that your lease contain a military clause to allow you to terminate your lease early should you deploy or receive permanent change of station orders. Always take all relative and important paperwork to the Housing Assistance Office or Legal Assistance Office before you sign.
