Congratulations! You’ve got a new job in a new city. Now, you’ve got to figure out how you’re going to move to your new home.  


Preparing for a relocation is a bit different than preparing for a move. During a regular move, you’ve probably chosen the city, neighborhood and new house before you started looking for a mover or move management company. In a relocation, the job may come first, followed by learning about the town and possible living options.  


First up: housing 

As soon as you’ve decided to relocate, you need to concentrate on two things: new housing and who will help you move.  


Your budget for housing is a large consideration. If you’re going from a small town to a large city, housing may look very different. You may have to downsize to an apartment that you can afford. If you’re going to a less populated place, housing may be more affordable and you could possibly scale up to a larger space.  


You will also want to consider neighborhoods or areas that mesh with your lifestyle. Do you enjoy living close to coffee shops, museums and bookstores? Or would you prefer somewhere with more land and trees? If you’re a parent, you may also have to do research to find a school system that fits your child’s.  


If possible, try to arrange a trip to your new city that is just about housing, not your job interview. You can ask a local real estate professional to give you a tour or perhaps one of your new colleagues can give you some tips.
