I'm not finding anything in the regulation that directly addresses this issue. I'm full aware of PCSing to and fro but there is nothing that addresses soldiers who become eligible to move off post. Thanks for any help.

Per AR 600-8-10, PTDY is only authorized for house hunting in conjunction with a PCS per Section XVI, para 5-32.f.(1)-(12) .

yes if the SM has a depended or advances to the rank of SSG (some post with limited barracks SGT), as PTDY is not only for house hunting but also for moving ones Family. as per 600-8-10

SGT (Join to see) - You need to read the entire 5-32 section... No PCS orders, no PDTY for house hunting.

Feel free to cite the para in 5-32 that supports PTDY is authorized for " moving ones Family."
You are looking for the para indicated by para 5-32 a through l .... You will find none of that supports PTDY may be authorized for " moving ones Family."
That is what ordinary leave is for.... and the travel time alloted is subtracted from the leave taken during PCS.
If you take 30 days "PCS" leave, and travel alloted is 10 days, you will be charged 20 days leave

If you want to move out of the barracks as a single enlisted member, you do it at your own expense. At least that was my experience.

The Soldier should put in for a pass if they need the time off. Also, I would like to assume the chain of command would be understanding if a Soldier would need to leave work to go visit a real estate agent or a housing office.
