3 Reasons To Choose a Real Estate Agent with Relocation Experience
Moving to a new area can be a stressful process that requires a lot of money and admin. Enlisting a real estate agent with relocation experience can help minimize a significant amount of your stress, because their extensive relocation experience will include things such as expert advice on the community you’re moving to, a cost of living comparison, advice on tax and legal implications of a business move, and more.
Here are 3 main reasons why you should choose a real estate agent with relocation experience when moving from one place to another:
1. You’ll get expert advice on your new community
A real estate agent who specializes in relocations will be able to give you advice on the community you’re looking to move to. They’ll let you know which neighborhoods are the best and which ones are the closest to amenities like schools, stores, parks, and public transport.
You can also get access to important contact information of doctors, emergency services, schools and banks in the area.
2. They’ll be able to give you comparison on the cost of living
Different areas differ in living costs. Relocation specialists will be able to give you a cost of living breakdown and comparison of the area you lived in previously and the one you’re relocating to. This will help you determine which neighborhoods you can relocate to and what’s in your budget.
3. General advice on tax and legal implications of a business move
It’s in your best interest to find out what the tax laws are in the state you’re moving to, especially when it comes to property taxes. If you’re an entrepreneur, you also need to consider how state tax laws will impact your business and the legal implications of relocating your business from one state to another. Relocation specialists will be able to give you a summary of general legal implications as well as referrals to licensed legal professionals and CPAs for tailored consulting.
Doing all this due diligence is time consuming and you might even come across conflicting information. A relocation specialist will save you time because they’ll provide you with the information and may even be able to refer you to a local tax advisor or lawyer that can provide you with in depth information.
The 3 points listed above are one of many reasons why you should consider hiring a real estate agent with relocation experience when moving from one area to another. The benefits are evident and it helps to have an expert to advocate for you and your needs during a big shift in your life. Call us for a free relocation consultation! 619-944-5972
