Not everyone has a firm idea about what neighborhood they want to live in. Such is often the case with people who must relocate their families as a matter of career advancement. Professionals who find themselves in this position often must rely on a relocation expert to provide them with an honest and adequate portrayal of their new community. With this in mind, real estate agents with familiarity of local areas can coordinate appointments with counselors at area schools, provide information on exact special needs or interests, help with temporary housing, or show a home. They can also provide information on local real estate terms and definitions, property taxes, mortgage rates, closing costs, market data, and local services.
HINT: The two factors that relocating professionals cite as major concerns are the quality of local school systems and proximity to work.
