Why You Should See, Hear, and Touch the Community
When Relocating to Carlsbad
 
Most people who are relocating to an area they don’t know find it to be a tough challenge. This is true even if you know you want to be there, perhaps know people there, and have heard the sorts of things about the area that appeal to you or have been doing some research online – you ARE, aren’t you?
 
WHAT IS YOUR LIFESTYLE?
While finding the right house that meets your needs and budget is key, I find that for most buyers lifestyle is at the top of the list, … (34 comments)

relocation tips and advice: 11 Ways to Maximize Your House Hunting Trips When Relocating - 08/26/18 09:05 PM
How to Maximize Your House Hunting Trips When Relocating
 
If you are relocating chances are pretty good you will make at least 1 trip to the area to look at homes, and communities, in the flesh, rather than relying on what you are told and finding online. While more people are buying homes sight-unseen, this can be a pretty risky proposition. It’s one thing for a rental property, but quite another for a primary or even vacation home, in my opinion.
 
If you are coming from a distance your home search in the new area will probably be limited, so make the most … (26 comments)

Financial Issues You Should Consider When Relocating
 
As you begin planning for your relocation, whether you are moving on your own or with a relocation package or company through your employer, it’s important to consider the costs associated with a big move, and to plan ahead.
 
Having experienced 4 major relocations myself, the last one from Boston to Southern California in 2005, I know a bit about what it entails, and provide a range of relocation services and resources for those moving to Carlsbad and the North San Diego County area.

relocation tips and advice: My Relocation Services for Buyers & Sellers in Carlsbad & Nearby - 03/25/18 03:05 PM
Relocation Services for Buyers and Sellers 
Carlsbad CA and Nearby
 
One of my favorite niche markets, and maybe the biggest one, is relocation. That is, assisting buyers and sellers who are relocating a distance, whether leaving my local area or moving here.
 
Any who buys, or sells, a home is moving, of course, but I find there are more complex issues associated with moving a longer distance, such as to and from other parts of California or other states, than locally. And it often takes quite a bit more planning.
 
I know a bit about relocation, from making 4 major moves myself, the … (23 comments)

relocation tips and advice: Questions Relocation Buyers Should Ask When Moving to Carlsbad -Part 1 - 12/30/17 07:58 PM
Questions Relocation Buyers Should Ask When Moving to Carlsbad (Part 1 of 3)
 
Are you considering a relocation to the Carlsbad area? There are plenty of issues to consider and questions you should ask as you get started.
 
I have worked with many relocation buyers, some coming from areas of California and others moving from out of state, and I find a lot of similarities in what they want to know when engaged in their home search. And even more so when they are here on a house hunting trip.
 
Each buyer’s situation, of course, is unique, but there are general questions that … (6 comments)

relocation tips and advice: Relocation Buyers – A Niche Market and Focus in 2017 - 02/22/17 05:28 PM
Relocation Buyers – A Niche Market for 2017
 
I have personally moved a bunch of times, have now owned 10 primary homes, and my wife and I have had 4 major relocations (to Boston from Michigan, Boston to the Twin Cities, the Twin Cities to Boston, and Boston to Southern California). As a result I know a lot about relocating a significant distance, but it has also been a big part of my real estate business, especially following my move to Carlsbad from Boston back in 2005.
 
I really enjoy working with relocations, from within California as well as from other parts of … (20 comments)

I’ve Been Working on My Moves
 
Lest you think I am joining the dating scene again, let me clarify. Been there done that years ago! I don’t need to, thankfully. But I am always working on my moves…real estate moves, that is.
 
As a Carlsbad Realtor with a bunch of personal relocations under my belt I focus, in part, on that niche.
 
Many of the buyers I work with have moved here from other parts of the country or other areas of California. The more I learn as I work with relocating buyers, and sellers, the better prepared I am to help those … (37 comments)

Making the Most of Your House Hunting Trips in Your Relocation
 
Chances are you will make at least one trip to your new location before you actually move in order to look at, and hopefully buy, your new home.  Time will probably be limited, so make the most of this time by doing the following (see video at bottom of page):
1. You should thoroughly research housing on-line in advance so you know what is available, pricing, etc. I don't advise going on this trip blind since you'll waste time. Research the towns and communities that interest you, along with schools if applicable.
 
2. … (5 comments)
