Relocation, make a plan for a smoother process

Relocating for a corporate position or personal reasons is never an easy decision and can be an even more difficult process.  There are dozens of concerns that come into play including cost of living change, rating of schools, commuting time to work, impact on family, even change in climate.  The list goes on.  There are ways to make the process just a little bit easier on yourself and your family.

Ask for help

Asking for help is rarely easy.  We often forget help is available.  Don’t be shy.  If you are relocating for work, contact your human resource department for assistance.  They often will have some idea of where the majority of their employees live (and why), the quality of the schools and daycare, where to find shopping and entertainment, and other local insights.   If you are relocating for family or adventure, you might also consider a visit to your local library and ask for city resources.  Libraries are rooted in the community and pride themselves on related resources.

Other helpful stops include:

  • Chamber of Commerce
  • Visitor Guides
  • Local Museums
  • On line Relocation Guides
  • Real Estate websites

Make a Plan

Having a plan before you land in your new town will help you maintain stability.  Decide what is important to you and your family and add related points to your plan.  For example, if you have medical concerns, you may want to locate a related specialist in the area and ensure that your new home is close by.  If your child is a budding ballerina, you will want to ensure that a local studio is accessible nearby.  Here are a few additional bullet points to get your plan started.

  • Perform an internet search and locate schools, childcare, or camps you would like to visit and set up  appointments.
  • Visit relocation company websites like and make appointments to view the houses and apartments in your areas of interest.
  • Locate the local library, community centers, and chamber of commerce for future research.
  • Don’t forget to spend some time exploring and experiencing the area.  Nothing will tell you more than a drive or walk around a city.
  • Invest in an area tour.  If you are working with a relocation company or real estate company chances are they offer area tours.    A half day or full day area tour often is just enough to get you basic knowledge of neighborhoods and the lay of the land.

Your personal situation will change the points of interest on your list.  It is important that you go in with at least a loosely developed plan to serve as a springboard.

Monitor Expectations

Your expectations can set you up for failure in one way or another.  Research regarding the city and state you are moving to.  Understand the basics of the area you are moving to.  This is includes average climate, crime rate, and availability of your favorite food.  Know what you are getting yourself into.  Cultivating a clear view of your new city, will help you manage your expectations for the area.

Moving to a new area is never easy.  The steps above can help make the process a little easier.  If you are planning a relocation we can help you.  Housing Helpers has offices in Boulder Colorado, Denver, and Las Vegas, and provides relocation services throughout Colorado and Nevada.  Our relocation services include area tours, home finding assistance, temporary housing, real estate, and rental locating.  Contact us for help with your next relocation.

Do any of these phrases sound familiar?

“Okay team, the plan today is to crunch numbers for those clients- we are excellent accountants, after all!”

“Yes, boss, I’ll run over to Morsel’s and grab coffee for the office.”

“Just another day of making IT simpler with our stunning innovations!”

“My, what a beautiful piece of healthcare technology system we have here!”

If so, then it is very likely that you work somewhere in the Interlocken or greater Broomfield area. Perhaps you are a long-time employee of one of the many high-profile companies here, or perhaps you’re a new or soon-to-be transplant.

Of course, the Interlocken Business Park and Broomfield do have a very boast-worthy location, just a quick 20-minute drive from both Denver and Boulder, with gorgeous mountain views to boot.

Colorado Springs | On your list for relocation in the new year?

In the hustle and bustle of these post-holiday and pre-2013 days, it is easy to get overwhelmed with planning. So in an attempt to quell your stress, consider ringing in the New Year with a city that is already teeming with festivities: Colorado Springs.

From our Boulder-based office, an account of a city 97 miles away may seem unusual. However, what many do not know is that our Housing Helpers office covers the width and breadth of Colorado; we are not just in Boulder County. We have dozens of apartment rentals, furnished houses, and short-term housing options sprinkled throughout the Colorado Springs area. So wherever there is something worth highlighting, Housing Helpers is there- including New Year’s Eve celebrations!

If the typical nightlife scene isn’t your cup of tea, then consider one of the many other options made available during this festive evening. For the yoga enthusiasts, Smokebrush Gallery offers a “Cosmic Yoga Slumber Party” to greet the new year with restoration and meditation practices. For those who like all that glitters, the Colorado Springs Double Tree Hotel will host their third annual Sterling and Sapphire Gala to benefit the Christmas Unlimited organization.

The evening can also be enjoyed through fits of giggles and guffaws at the Loonees Comedy Corner’s special “Dueling Pianos” show. For those who desire more cultural flair, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic presents “En Fuego” at the Pikes Peak Center. And of course, there are a number of family-friendly events as well. At the Pikes Peak Children’s Museum, kids can partake in a countdown-to-noon, complete with a ball drop, entertainment, snacks, and educational games.

Whatever option you decide, ensure that safety is one of your New Year’s resolutions. Thanks to McDivitt Law Firm, late night celebration-goers can get a safe ride home free of charge with their ongoing “Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home” program.

The options highlighted here are a mere sampling of the plethora of festive activities available for those in the Springs area. And if you aren’t thinking of settling there already, perhaps this hands-on account of their array of local and cultural events could sway you.

As with any new year, 2013 is sure to bring new decisions, changes, and discoveries. If one of those changes involves relocating to Colorado- the Springs area or otherwise- be sure to contact us here at Housing Helpers. Our new year’s resolution is to help you find the best possible housing to suit your specific needs. Whether short- or long-term, furnished to your taste or unfurnished for your creation, Housing Helpers has options for you. From us to you, may your next year be full of life and love. Happy New Year!
