Why You Need a Relocation Specialist

father and son unpackingSpring is here, and that often means a new job, relocating, and plenty of chaos. For just about everybody, picking up and moving is a big deal, and it can be stressful if you tackle it alone. This is why you need to consider a relocation specialist, a real estate professional who is uniquely trained to make this transition as smooth and stress-free as possible.

A relocation specialist will remember all the details, find you a home with all the “must haves”, and take into account your work location(s). This saves you the time, stress and frustration of trying to coordinate everything on your own.

The Granite State has so much to enjoy, from picturesque vistas in the White Mountains, to beautiful lakes, hiking trails, and seacoast with miles of sandy beaches. A relocation specialist can help you narrow down which of these areas would be your ideal places to begin your search, and he or she will have the scoop on the benefits of each community you may consider. That helps with your pros and cons list and being able to decide what is right for you.

Here are some basic questions you can expect to discuss with a relocation specialist:

  • Where is your new job (and your spouse or partner’s job) located?
  • Are you an in-town kind of family, or do you like wide open spaces and big yards?
  • How close do you want to be to grocery and retail stores – one block, one mile, ten miles?
  • Have you been pre-approved for a mortgage, and if so, what is the budget?
  • How many bedrooms and baths do you need to have?
  • Is a home office required?
  • How important is a garage?
  • If you travel, how far from an airport should you live?
  • Do you want to live near a beach or lake?
  • Do you want to live close to specific medical centers?
  • What schools or universities are of interest to your family? For example, there are 88 local town and regional school districts in New Hampshire that offer public education. New Hampshire also offers private elementary and secondary schools, like Philips Exeter Academy or St. Paul‘s School. The NH Dept. of Education’s website provides several good resources to help in your decision.
  • Does your family like to hike, or visit parks and art galleries? Does anyone in the family love water sports, ice rinks, yoga studios, forests, nightlife, snowmobile trails, etc.? These can all impact which communities would be a good fit.

What you can expect

After you find a real estate agent who specializes in relocation services, it is time to start viewing homes and getting to know the area. This move means a totally new community and neighborhood to discover. Encourage everyone in your family to explore what is in close proximity to the neighborhoods you are considering. This includes things like shopping areas, coffee shops, the library, skate parks, movie theaters, and driving routes to work or school. This is the first step into making the new community feel more like home.
