A new career opportunity, or retirement, sometimes means that your family will need, or want to relocate to another town. The decision to move is often arrived after careful consideration of various factors including the other partner’s career, the effects on the children’s educational and recreational activities; and financial issues. In addition, it often means leaving behind family and friends.
If you are the “trailing” partner, it may fall to you to get your new home up and running, the kids in school and possibly finding a new position for yourself. This can be overwhelming. Here are some tips to help relieve the stress of relocation.
Besides helping you to find a new home, our Real Estate Professionals can also be a great resource in your relocation. Our real estate agents have insights on our area’s job market, finding a doctor, schools/colleges, recreational activities, and much, much more. They can also connect you to new people in your new community from local places of worship, continuing education classes and volunteerism.
Don’t try and accomplish everything at once. Make a list and divide it into three categories: Immediate, Secondary and Down the Road. Set your own timetable. Most importantly, don’t push yourself by setting unrealistic goals. Moving is a process and it will take time for you to get acclimated to your new home and community.
