If you’ve ever pondered changing careers and relocating to a new city or state, you’ve almost certainly evaluated various criteria to find the most excellent fit. A variety of geographical circumstances might influence your happiness and quality of life. As a result, migration is a difficult decision. So you might be asking, “How can I find the best house for my relocation?”
While deciding to migrate is relatively straightforward, deciding where to go is not. Take time to examine the following points when browsing real estate listings when looking for a new place to live.
Now, a good portion of my business is helping people relocate to Louisville from outside the state or even outside the country, so I have a great deal of experience in this area. But what I wanted to write about today were relocation companies.
Some, like Cartus, negotiate with the largest U.S. companies to the benefit of both. But do the home buyers benefit? The answer, as you might expect is, “sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t.”
The laws are such that the consumer has the right to use whichever real estate professional they like without being forced into choosing a particular agent deemed acceptable by their employer. There are times when it’s financially in the best interest of the consumer to use that agent, but I’ve seen instances where it certainly wasn’t.
Bottom line is, “Get recommendations!” Find someone you trust, and ask them if their Realtor did a great job. I pride myself on first class customer service for all my real estate clients and as my motto goes, “Top agents put you first!”
