Everything You Need To Know About Real Estate

We may be transferred again. What is the single most important suggestion you can give us?

Couple with Sold Sign There are so many details to consider in choosing a new home – style, size, price, location.

But for transferees likely to move again in a few years – whether another transfer or to a larger home – there is one crucial secret: Buy with selling in mind. Chances are, the same things that make a home comfortable now will attract others when you sell.
    Special considerations for the short-term homeowner include:
  • Neighborhood

  • Look for an established neighborhood that will be enhanced by future growth but not inconvenienced by it.
  • Transportation

  • Consider availability of all forms of transportation, even those you may not use.
  • Schools

  • Check for quality public schools, whether or not you have school-age children.
  • Property

  • Look carefully at the lot for trees and greenery to buffer winter winds or summer heat and consider how much privacy the house and lot provide.
  • Parking

  • See if ample guest parking is available.
  • Commute

  • Check morning and afternoon drive times to work, schools, shopping, church.
  • Financing

  • Shop for financing that delivers the lowest cost in the first 2-4 years, such as adjustable mortgages.
  • Specialists

  • Choose a real estate agent that specializes in relocation and is trained to help transferees find the kind of home that will be in demand in the future.
