Job transfers usually involve at least one house hunting trip to the new area. These trips, while exciting, can be hectic as they often only last from a few days to perhaps a week at the most.
So what should one do first when transferring to a new area in the not too distant future?
First of all, whether you are going to buy or rent, touching base with a local knowledgeable real estate agent should be your first step.
A local real estate agent should be able to provide answers to your many questions, email links and information about the area and then send you some listings to provide you an idea about the local real estate prices (sales and/or rentals).
And when you are ready to take your house hunting trip to Florida, plan ahead. Let your real estate agent know in advance. You and your agent can put together a plan of action before you arrive in your new area.
I have had a few cases through the years where out of town folks just arrive unannounced only to find I am already committed to other clients. Still I was able to help them by referring them to a colleague but lost in all this was the rapport already established and, more importantly, the understanding of their needs and wants.
