Planning a move to the Triangle?
The Amy Shair Guide to Triangle Relocation 2021. Relocating in 2021 is different than it was in 2019 and early 2020 (pre-COVID). The 2 biggest reasons for relocating-buyers moving now are 1) a new job or improved job security with a new employer and 2) making an improvement in their lifestyles which they had been procrastinating to make for more than a year.
Previously people looking to relocate were shopping for the perfect job or calculating the perfect time to relocate and now that there has been a worldwide reminder that time is precious; buyers are realizing that doing something is better than waiting.
It takes courage and a lot of work to uproot your life and move it somewhere new, but doing so will pay off. Depending on your situation you may be moving with your partner/spouse, children, and your furry pet family members. If you’re planning a move to the Triangle area, here are some tools that will help you transition smoothly, as well as some topics I can discuss with you further to help make your relocation a success!
Your relocation budget
The first step you should take when planning a move to a new area is to calculate how much money it will cost to move. Things to consider when calculating your budget include the costs involved with selling your current home or breaking a lease, the down payment on your new home, trips to visit your new city, home improvements to your current home to make it marketable, whether you will bring your current furnishings or buy some or all new furnishings, and typical moving costs. Some companies will still offer some compensation such as a signing bonus or a relocation package but it is not likely going to cover all of your relocation costs.
Changes in long-term expenses
Regardless of where you’re moving from, your cost of living and tax situation will change. If you’re moving for work, take these changes into consideration when you evaluate a new job offer or relocation package. Also, remember that you’ll be filing tax returns in both states the year you move. I can provide you with many helpful resources for cost of living and tax information in the Triangle.
Getting to know the area with Amy Shair
The real estate market is expected to be a seller’s market through 2021 so that means that houses do not stay on the market long. You need someone to help answer questions about lifestyle, things to do, recreation, traffic, and the overall vibe of our area. That will help once you get here to look around and feel like you understand what areas will be a good fit for you, both from an investment perspective and for your enjoyment day in and day out.
If you are relocating here you may know where you’ll be commuting to each day; you probably have an idea of your maximum commute time or distance you want to drive each day and have one or two additional high priority criteria such as schools or proximity to the airport, medical facilities, or to your place of worship. I can provide you an unbiased look at all the areas and help you make the decision on which ones suit your personality and needs.
One of the most valuable benefits of using my services for your relocation is that I know the ENTIRE Triangle area, not just one section. Many agents primarily work in one area such as Raleigh or Durham and occasionally venture into other areas of the Triangle, but I can help you find a home in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and several other towns in and around the Triangle.
