Coldwell Banker® offers tips to help ease relocation woes
The days of spending 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years in the same company, in the same facility, are almost a thing of the past. Today, individuals will likely have an average of 10.8 different employers in a lifetime, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Whether prompted by a corporate transfer, career change or lifestyle goal, Americans are on the move.
Picking up and moving cross country, or to another state, isn’t always easy. One must find a home, a job for a spouse, perhaps schools if children are involved, not to mention get a feel for the community and general lifestyle before settling into a new location. The professionals at Coldwell Banker recommend the following steps to ensure when and if it comes time to move a considerable distance, the process is smooth and simple:
Get organized. Put together a list of the key information you need before settling in to a new city or town, such as:
- What is the cost of living? How far will my money go?
- What is the price of a similar sized house in the new location?
- What is the community like?
- How are the school systems?
- What is the noise factor?
- Will this be a good area for my spouse to find work?
Do your research. To learn more about the typical lifestyle of the new area, as well as community events and crime rates, get a few back copies of the local newspaper, or log on to the local paper’s Web site. This third party information, along with what you learn from the local Chamber of Commerce, will provide you with the personality of the area.
Use the Internet. Web sites such as www.coldwellbanker.com can provide visitors with a multitude of useful information. The Home Price Estimator function calculates the approximate value of a home in the new market, a good indicator of the cost of living. Other information includes: median age and income, percentages of married couples and children, recent home sales, and a listing of elementary and high schools with demographic information on the schools.
Field reconnaissance. When you begin working with a real estate sales associate, consider having him or her take you through neighborhoods at various times to get a feel for the environment. Also check if and how much new construction and remodeling work is taking place. This will tell you whether the neighborhood is popular and whether current residents plan to stay.
Coffee talk. Try having conversations with locals. Most likely, they know the neighborhood and surrounding areas well.
Work With Your Employer. Make it clear to your new employer your significant other is now in need of a job. The company likely has relationships with relocation experts and executive recruitment firms to assist.
