Short Sale and Foreclosure Resources

In recent years, unprecedented job losses, market fluctuations, and economic uncertainty have caused a spike in the number of homeowners in foreclosure or in danger of becoming so. As more homeowners have fallen behind on their mortgages, many local markets have been flooded with distressed sale properties—short sales or actual foreclosures.  Use the resources below to get more information on foreclosures and the process:

Military Housing

Kentucky has two major military bases within its borders – Fort Knox and Fort Campbell.

Through BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure), the relocation of hundreds of active duty and civilian workers may affect these installations. Many soldiers will opt to reside off-post and, as such, those soldiers, who work extremely hard defending our country, need assurance their families are in good quality, affordable housing. There are several resources to help in these situations:


Local area real estate property owners and managers seeking to advertise their rental property in the military communities are encouraged to register with the Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN). AHRN is a Department of Defense website that the Fort Knox Housing Office uses to provide housing to military members and their families. AHRN provides a listing of rental properties that are located within a 60 minutes radius of the military installation.

AHRN is free and easy to use. In addition, pre-approval is not a prerequisite to registering with AHRN. Also, it is not a requirement that real estate property owners and managers be affiliated with the military. Fort Knox is in need of all types of rental listings, including long-term, short-term, single-family, and temporary lodging. In order to register with AHRN, property owners and managers simply need to access the website at www.AHRN.com and follow the directions.

Military Housing Assistance through KHC

Military Housing Assistance is a program created by the 2007 Kentucky Legislature and Kentucky Housing Corporation. It is designed to aid military personnel during active duty deployment outside of the United States by providing assistance with housing costs and services. Military personnel who meet this qualification for assistance must also have listed Kentucky as their home state of record for military purposes. Learn more here.
