The DoD National Relocation Program (DNRP) is designed to assist eligible and authorized Department of Defense (DoD) civilian transferees to relocate from one duty station to another.
DNRP is an alternative to PCS Real Estate Reimbursement.
There is no cost to the transferee for DNRP services. DNRP actually saves the transferee money and time.
DNRP services include:

signs the required DNRP Listing Exclusion Clause-Addendum to Listing Agreement.

YES. Appraisers: You will select the appraisers to establish
the DNRP Guaranteed Home Sale (GHS) offer.
The Relocation Management
Contractor (RMC) will have you select two primary appraisers plus one
alternate. The RMC will provide you with a list of accredited appraisers or you
may request appraisers who are not on the RMC’s list, however the RMC must verify
their qualifications to perform residential relocation appraising.

mortgage company or lender of your choice. The RMC can refer you to
national relocation lenders offering preferential rates/terms for transferring
No. You are never
obligated to accept a DNRP Guaranteed Home Sale (GHS) offer.
The DNRP is an
alternative to selling your home yourself and obtaining reimbursement for real
estate sale expenses. If you reject or allow your GHS offer to expire you can
still sell your home independently and voucher for reimbursement of selling
expenses as provided under the JTR.
No. DNRP guidelines do
not require you to list your home prior to entering the program. It is
recommended that you don’t. You must have the DNRP Listing Exclusion Clause-Addendum
added to your Listing Agreement as part of your listing agreement and the NRPO
can help you with that. The exclusion clause can be found on the DNRP web page.
After you initiate DNRP services, you must list your home for sale with a qualified broker and actively market the property for 60 consecutive days.

circumstances it will take approximately 30 calendar days after your appraiser
No. DNRP participation
requires the DNRP Listing Exclusion Clause Addendum to be part of your listing
agreement with your realtor. If your realtor is reluctant to include the
addendum, contact your RMC’s Relocation Counselor (RC) or your counselor in the
National Relocation Program Office (NRPO).
No. Only civilian DoD
employees authorized by their agency are eligible for DNRP home sale and
property management services.
However, both civilian
employees and active duty service members may utilize DNRP no-fee Departure
Services/Destination Services/ Mortgage Services. Call the NRPO (800-344-2501
or 410-962-3166) to request destination services.
No. Employees must select
either DNRP Guaranteed Home Sale (GHS) OR Property Management (PM) at the time
of completing the Online Relocation Services Request Form. You cannot go
through the home sale program, reject the home buyout offer, and then request
property management services under DNRP.
The DNRP Listing
Exclusion Clause is an addendum that protects your right to accept an offer
from the RMC, without any obligation for you to pay a real estate commission.
Your listing agent
will earn a full sales commission, if the agent is successful in obtaining an
acceptable offer from a qualified purchaser while you are marketing your home
prior to accepting the GHS offer.
If the agent does not
elicit an acceptable offer during the home marketing process and you accept the
GHS offer, the listing is cancelled when you accept the AVO, and your listing
agent will not earn any commission.
An outside offer is an
acceptable offer to purchase your home received from a qualified buyer which
nets you equal to or more than the Guaranteed Home Sale (GHS) offer. If
the offer and buyer are acceptable, the RMC will “amend” the GHS offer to equal
the net sale price offered by the outside purchaser.
You should not list
your home for sale until after receipt of your PCS orders and you have reviewed
the DNRP Listing Exclusion Clause-Addendum to Listing Agreement. You are required to list your house for sale
upon initiating DNRP services.
The appraisers are
appraising your home in the “as is” condition, assuming that all systems are in
working order and that no conditions exist that would make your home ineligible
for the DNRP. If conditions are found to exist in your home that make the
property ineligible for the program, the conditions must be repaired or
mitigated in order to qualify for the program.
DNRP is designed to
help you successfully sell your home for the best price possible after a
reasonable exposure to the real estate market.
The GHS is an estimate
of the anticipated selling price for your home based on a marketing time of up
to 120 days. The GHS is not the highest or the lowest price possible, but
should be considered as a “safety net” - a guaranteed offer that you can accept
if you are not able to find an outside purchaser.
Selling your home with
the RMC and obtaining a BVO offer or AVO offer is half of the cost of you
accepting a GHS offer. Having many BVO’s and AVO’s allows the DNRP
program to be offered to more DoD transferees.
No. DNRP does not
provide for the reimbursement of expenses for the purchase of your new
residence. JTR entitlements provide for reimbursement of normal and customary
home purchase expenses for eligible employees.
