Moving can be a very stressful and traumatic experience, no matter how short the distance. When you relocate to a new city, or an entirely different state it is even more difficult! In most instances you are moving into the unknown, and probably don’t know about the different neighborhoods, school systems, or perhaps even what the climate is like!
In order to feel more confident about your move it’s important that you know as much about your destination as possible. The most effective and efficient way to take on this enormous task is to engage the services of a Realtor who specializes in the area and knows the local market.
Because each and every person’s needs are different, it’s best that you express your concerns as clearly as possible. You’ll want to clearly define your wants and needs, that is your “wish list” and prioritize these in a ranking of most, to least important. If you have children your first priority will likely be identifying the top local school districts in and around your place of employment. You’ll also want to think about your personal or family lifestyle and what you like and dislike about your current community and communicate all of this to your Realtor.
Considering where to buy is only the start and in fact your move will include a host of other decisions including but not limited to financing options and the specific features and amenities you want in a home, typically balanced against what will be good for resale. We can assist you with every aspect of your relocation, from start to finish we’ll be there to help you make the most informed decision every step of the way! We will give you an overview of the different areas in and around Columbus and will help you identify the community and subdivisions which best fit your lifestyle, budget and tastes.
Once we have this information we can assist you in locating the perfect home. To avoid wasting time, we’ll want to revisit your “wish list”, which will allow us to focus on what’s most important to you. When narrowing down your home search, consider the following:
- type of home you want to buy, that is are your looking for a new or an existing construction, a single family home or a condo, what types of architecture appeal to you, etc.
- prepare a features wish list to help keep you focused including number of bedrooms, baths, square footage, do you need a basement, if so does it need to be finished, is a home theater a requirement, how about the number of garage stalls, is privacy important and if so how large of a lot are you looking for.
From planning your first house-hunting trip to arranging interviews with Headmasters of schools, arranging for auto leases, hiring decorators and even getting the kids into summer camp, our relocation services are second to none.
