Should you relocate? 4 Basic Questions to Ask Yourself

Many people relocate due to a job. Others just decide to move because they want a change of scenery. However, before you just pack up and leave, you should really take time and decide if relocation is the right move for you and your family.

Here are some questions that you might want to ask yourself (and your family) before you relocate.

  • Will you (and the rest of your family) be able to find jobs? Many people only relocate if they have a job offer. If that is the case, you need to make sure that your husband or wife will be able to find a decent job. Otherwise, you both need to make sure that you will be able to find jobs easily (and quickly).

 

  • Will you be able to find a place to live quickly and easily? Is it going to be convenient to potential jobs? Do you want to rent a place or own your own home? Are there plenty of places to rent or own?

 

  • How does the cost of living compare to where you live? Will I be able to make enough to live comfortably? Most jobs should pay decently compared to the cost of living but that is not always the case.

 

  • Am I going to live in a similar location (city/suburbs/farm) or completely different? Where do I want to live? Some people are happy living where they do. Others want a complete change. Which do you prefer?

Relocation should be big decision. You need to make sure that you (and everyone in your family) can find jobs. You also need to make sure that housing is easily available. You should research the cost of living compared to what you will be making. You should also decide whether or not you want to live in a similar location or completely different

These questions can become more clear with the right advice from the help of a relocation services company.  Call Housing Helpers of Colorado if you are considering a relocation to Colorado and one of our friendly relocation specialists will be happy to assist you.

Relocating from out of state? Why You Need Help

Whether you are looking to buy or rent, you are probably thinking about finding your own home in the midst of your out-of-state relocation. However, even if you have always found your own homes in the past, this might not be the best choice if you are moving to Colorado from another state.

These are a few reasons why it’s best to use a relocation services company like Housing Helpers to help you find the perfect home.

You’re Unfamiliar With the Area

In your hometown, you probably know which neighborhoods are the safest and most convenient. Obviously, this won’t be the case if you are moving to Colorado for the first time. The Internet can help a little bit, but you’re more likely to find a home in a safe, convenient area with good schools and good transportation if you work with a professional relocation services company that knows the area well.

You Might Not Know How Much to Budget

Housing and rental prices vary significantly between different cities and states. The cost of living is higher in certain areas of Colorado than it might be in your hometown, so you might be unsure of how much to budget for in your search.  A relocation service can talk to you about your needs, help you create a budget, and can give you an idea of how much you can expect to pay.  An experienced relocation specialist can also identify any hidden costs or surprises that you may not have planned for.

It’s Challenging to House Hunt From Out of State

House hunting requires trips to meet with real estate agents, trips to fill out paperwork and more. In the midst of your relocation, it might not be feasible for you to head to Colorado on a constant basis to look for a home. With a professional home finding relocation service, however, you can get some assistance in finding the right house for you without having to be physically present for most of the search.  Often a relocation services firm will be able to “preview” listings for you to vet them and make sure they are satisfactory- not only being your eyes on the ground in Colorado but also helping you to avoid scams.

If you are in the middle of an out-of-state relocation, make things easy for yourself by working with a professional relocation services firm like Housing Helpers.   To get in touch with one of our friendly relocation specialists call 303.545.6000.

relocation tips for children

Relocation tips for children

Spring has finally arrived, bringing along the season to get to work on long overdue house projects or possibly a move to a new home.  Whether you and your family are preparing for a corporate relocation for a new job, moving into a larger home in a different part of town, or changing addresses to be closer to family, the impact on your family, especially children, can be monumental.

Tips to Help Children With A Relocation

There are three phases to most household moves, and as a family, finding ways to support children through each one can make the adjustment to a new home less stressful for the whole family.

1- Getting Ready

Once you know a move is required, plan to share the news with your children and work to make sure everyone in the family understands the reason for the move.  Children will revisit the reason for the move often as they work through their feelings about this change in their lives.

It is also important to include children in the process of moving and to maintain good communication for everyone in the family. Simple ideas to help include keeping a calendar or list of tasks posted for the whole family to see, giving children age appropriate tasks to help with the move, and building in fun activities to balance out the work, giving the family some well-needed relaxation time. Scheduling family meetings can help as a check-in with everyone, too.

2- Moving Time

When the time comes to move to your new home, emotions can be running high. It is important to balance the need to say goodbye to your home, friends and community with all the work that needs to be done in the last couple of days.

Try getting each child a journal or scrapbook to put pictures or memories from their old home and friends. Leaving a small memento at your old home can allow children to say goodbye, like adding a plant or flower to the garden or tucking a note or special treasure in their room.

Lastly, packing a small bag or backpack with moving supplies for each child, like their favorite toys, a map of their new neighborhood or city, stationary or postcards to write notes or pictures to friends and family can be helpful.

3- Home Again

The key to settling into a new home is a combination of finding special places in your new town to explore and recognizing that getting comfortable in a new home or town takes time. Include your child in activities, like trips to the store to get new household items, and picking out items for their room.

Research local events and festivals, resources like libraries and park, and activities like sports, camps or classes to help connect your children to their new community and support them making friends.

Relocating can be overwhelming, but understanding the steps involved can help you and your family enjoy the adventure and weather the challenges. If you and your family need assistance with your corporate relocation or move, please contact us today.
