I’m relocating – where do I start?

You should first enlist the help of a trusted real estate agent to help you through the process. Your realtor can work with you to understand the difference in cost of living, sell your current home, find your new home, and guide you through the logistics. Starting off your move right begins with a real estate agent who is familiar with the entire process and sensitive to your family’s deadlines and budget.

How can I avoid paying two mortgages with my current home and new home?

It is a good idea to carefully plan out the buying/selling of your home so that you do not end up paying two mortgages. You can also add a contingency clause in your contract that allows you to sell your home before closing on a new property. If paying two mortgages is unavoidable, there are financing options available to homeowners to help them transition. Talk to a realtor about your unique situation.

What are some expenses I need to plan for?

You should take into account costs for transportation, packing expenses, a moving company, replacement for items you threw out, additional furniture, and hotel fees if you need temporary stays before settling into your new home.

What are some tips when relocating with young children?

Make sure that you have researched your new neighborhood, the schools, and activities that they can enjoy. Children can have a difficult time adjusting to the move, but you can make it easier for them by making it a fun process. Always be positive and encourage your children to think of it as a new adventure.
