Relocating Can Be Hard – Tips to Help
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 following steps are recommended to ensure that when the time comes 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? · 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 http://www.johndugas.cbintouch.com can provide visitors with detailed information on thousands of listings with multiple photos, and HomeMovies®, streaming video virtual tours exclusive to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage clients.
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.
