    My daughter is graduating in 2016. I was told that you can rent out houses for graduation. Does anyone have any ideas about how to go about locating these houses? Any ideas of cost?

    We placed a deposit for a 2016 rental last fall to get a prime location close to the Academy so we don’t spend a lot of time stuck on I-25 going to and fro during the week. Found the house on VRBO for $3800 for the week. Less expensive places available but this is a really nice home and as it is with all real estate transactions – location, location, location. Another reason we liked this particular home is that is a Corporate home and no one actually lives in it.

    USAFA Parents: We used the below company/gentleman to rent a house from for our son's graduation May 2013. The house and price was AWESOME! We were SO pleased! The home owners were GREAT! We rented a VERY custom 4300 sqft house for $2500 for a week. No extra cleaning fees and a $250 refundable deposit that I have already received back.

    Ed sets up the next year's graduation rentals right after the current's year's graduation is complete. If your graduation is not next year, then he will put you on a list to call as soon as the graduation prior to your cadet's graduation is complete.

    Please tell him Reda from Granbury recommended his company. I am picky, and Ed was awesome as were his homeowners he represents :smile: I found Ed's name and number recommended from a prior parent on a forum so wanted to pass on this information for future USAFA graduations.

    Thank you for your feedback! I appreciate it. I am figuring out numbers right now to see which makes more sense, hotel vs. house. Again, thanks!

    We used this house for 2014 grad. Wonderful home, great owners, and close to USAFA. Made a great week even better. I was doubtful of a rental home, but I would do it again in a second.
