Best APP for veterans!
While searching for a new home or need to sell, download and use this app! It will show your options near bases, and every preferred detail of a home you would like. The communication between buyer/seller/renter is simple and worth it. Totally recommend using this app. I’ve listed and rented so far from other vets!

Home on the rental market - 2 months
Our home in San Antonio, TX has been on the market in this website for over 2 months, and we have not received one email or call from any potential tenants. We have a 3400 square foot 4 bedroom home in a desirable cul-de-sac near Sea World. No HOA. Plus our home is a rare steel framed house with brick...and nothing. I paid the $80 package hoping I could attract more interest. Nope. We have received more traffic on Zillow rental manager for free, and have a tenant lined up for the end of this month. Will not be using this website again (Currently keep our house on this website to get our money’s worth) and unfortunately will not recommend to our friends. We are an Army family of active duty service over 20 years. We know a lot of service members and DOD civilians and contractors all over the world that are constantly moving and need good housing. Extremely disappointed to say the least.

Unable to do search w/o base *
It asks for a base* and when you click on “Base*“ it pops up a list of states not bases. If you click on any of the states and then next it doesn’t add or give options for a base and the state doesn’t show you’ve selected anything and won’t allow for any searches. If you skip that portion it also doesn’t allow for you to enter the section of time available. Either way no search is able to be completed or even started without a Base* selection yet I am unable to do this.

MilitaryByOwner is such a resourceful tool when looking for a home near any U.S. military base! So many different search options and easy to navigate! Thank you MBO for helping so many people easily find a home during what COULD have been such a stressful and blindly done process! Keep doing what your doing!!!!

Very bare bones; almost not functional
For some reason it allows you to sign in, but then your saved searches aren’t there. So you have to plug in the state and installation. Every. Single. Time. No notifications, no way of mapping things. The website isn’t great, but this has about half the functionality of the site. Way too basic. Take a look at Zillow, MBO, and try to emulate.

Good reference info
The layout and info provides a good basis to make sound decisions for your next move. My complaints are the "Call Me" and "Email Me" links just close the app. You also can't save a search preference from the app so every time I return to the app to look for new homes I have to put all that same info in the fields.

Where’s my listing
Super frustrated and angry. Years ago I was very happy with MBO, BUT this is a terrible app that doesn’t show accurate information!!! When you search for homes near our base no homes are listed including mine. In fact the only homes listed are in another part of the state!!! I’ll never rent when no one will ever see it. I paid to list my home for rent and you are not listing it. You’re app is useless and I won’t use it again!

Ughhh... when will they update this???
Just like the website, the app is stuck far in the past. No easy way like Zillow or trulia to have default searches without looking in, user defined price searches, or a modern looking app. Listings do get updated so it is used... but no effort from the owners to bring it to a state of technology today.

Use website. This app is useless
The app gives absolutely no results for the same filters on the website that yield pages of results. Why even have this up, American Eagle? You’re giving the site a bad name with this waste of time.

Not a modern property search app
This app has not been updated in years. Setting search parameters is conversion and not up to par with other sites. Things like setting a range takes multiple steps. It’s unfortunately annoying to the point that I’d rather not use it.

Filter tools don’t work
Nice concept but once you add a filter, nothing shows up. Makes it cumbersome to go through. The website isn’t much better. Both needs lots of improvement.

Like the house? Too bad!
UPDATE: it's been a few months since I contacted MBO to alert them as to issues. The response was that they are working on it but nothing has been done. The concept is great but they are really doing their paying clients a disservice by continuing to allow these known issues to persist. Also, the site is full of outdated entires. Need to send tickler to advertisers to remind to take down ad if place is sold/rented. App crashes when you try to email or contact poster. Email is not displayed so cannot contact through other means. Tried to contact MBO and the app crashed when I did that too. Need to work out these kinks.

Constantly crashes
I'm only giving this app two stars on the basis that it's nice having this site so easily accessible. It's a convenient resource for our constant PCS'ing and has helped us find multiple homes. BUT after using this for well over one...maybe two years(?) they still have not fixed their bugs. This app crashes at least every 3 minutes, so CONSTANTLY save or screen shot every house you come across that you like so you can find it again. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and updated multiple times and it still won't surpass the 3 minute mark.

Great App for Buying/Renting a Home
MilitaryByOwner did a great job with their app! It's easy to use and has all the information as their website. I like that you can still search by military base. But I love the added feature of being able to search based on your current location as well! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for their next home.

Crashes, please fix!
I just tried using this app again, but I'm done. It crashes every time I use it. Then I have to re-enter my search criteria every time. Frustrating. Also, one of 2 things would be nice... Either have an option on the app the sort in price order, or let me choose from more rent amounts. For example, I know putting down a max rent of $1,000 won't give me any results, but when I put the next option, $1,500 I get a lot of results close to that number and that's out of my budget. The amounts should frankly be in $100 increments for rent.

Great search functionality
This app has great search functionalities, whether you're looking to buy or to rent a home. It gives you the options to easily filter out the results based on the specifications of a home you're looking for. I'd definitely recommend this app, especially for anyone looking to relocate around a military base.

Decent app but needs some tweaking
Please allow users to be able to save a setting, ie save your state/base, so that we don't have to continuously set those each time the app is used. Most people are using this to search for a home in one specific location so it would be nice to have the option to save your desired location.

The rental property app I've been waiting for!
Flawless operations on both iPhone and iPad. I especially appreciate search features and the image display of our photos. I'll list my Hawaii rental property on MBO because I get quick contact from the best tenants.

Crashes when attempt to email homeowner
Property selections are sparse for really big bases. Any attempt to contact the property owners or app developer results in the app force-closing. The homes that do show are well marketed with good photos and information, but with the size of the bases, I expected more homes to list. Fix the "email me" button and add more homes, and I'll add the stars!

Great mobile real estate app
I like the search features and usability of this app. The drop downs and spin selectors make it nice to enter selections without toggling around too much. The selections options help negate the ambiguity with some search tools.

What happened???
Just downloaded the current version hoping for new features, but instead I am now unable to use the 'email me' function. Every time I click that button to email a property manager or owner, the app closes itself. What's the point of the app if not to facilitate a link between owners and potential renters?? This problem needs immediate attention!!

Please fix the call and email functions so they do more than just close the app. If you could save search preferences and make contact with sellers/renters/buyers through the app it would get 5 stars
