Who are Atlanta expatriate executive leasing tenants and owners?
When I meet new folks we invariably ending up talking about what we do for a living and folks are rarely aware of the expatriate communities that exist within Atlanta. What the heck is an expatriate? How does this work for the owners and tenants?
In Atlanta and many other cities there are folks that are brought in to do an international assignment from their home country for a local branch, the company headquarters, or even an international consulate position. These folks usually have a limited duration that they will be living in Atlanta, such that who they work for gives them a budget and has them lease (rent) a home for the duration rather than get into the expenses of purchasing a home for the short-term.
By short term, we mean any where from 2-3 years. After that expatriates frequently stay in Atlanta, but their employment status can change from semi-localized to localized. The longest we have had an expatriate tenant is six years and counting.
Expatriates can also be sent out of Atlanta on an international assignment, but plan to return to Atlanta after their assignment and don’t want to sell their home. Tim Francis Realty has extensive experience helping Atlanta expatriates or ex-pat’s coming or going for the past 10 years.
For the incoming Atlanta expatriates, we routinely lease out a variety of Executive Lease homes; have great knowledge of contacts to get them set up in Atlanta with everything from schools including Atlanta International School to utilities to driver’s licenses.
