Quick Tips for Relocation
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:
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
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.
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.
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.
