Does My Real Estate Agent Need Relocation Expertise?

When you're moving away to a completely new area, a corporate relocation Realtor can help cut your stress and anxiety immeasurably. Relocation Realtor Specialists understand that there's much much more to a big move than packing your belongings and filing a change of address form with the post office. They have an elevated level of expertise,  as well as special experience and perspective,  that most real estate agents simply can't provide to relocating homeowners.


Just a few things that may be helpful to someone relocating might include:

1. Hire a Realtor who knows the area and is familiar with relocation

2. Familiarize yourself with the Area

2. Get Pre-Qualified for a loan prior to visiting the area

3. Go house shopping online


Ask your Realtor to give you access to the MLS to help you learn the areas and search for homes.

Ask if they can provide you with  a complete relocation packet, including: information about the school systems, crime rates for local neighborhoods, and a map that shows the layout of public transportation and location of public services, shopping, schools, and the person’s employer.


A Relocation Specialist is trained to be an advocate in all aspects of your move. Moving to a new city is a disorienting experience at best, and a relocation expert can reduce your confusion, get your feet on the ground, and help you move ahead quickly and confidently.
