2 Tips to Help You Relocate
Here are two helpful tips to make sure your move goes smoothly.
So you’ve decided to relocate. It’s an exciting process, but there are a couple of things you need to keep in mind to make sure everything goes smoothly. Let’s talk about them:
1. Make sure things are set with your job. If you shake things up with your career, it could jeopardize your mortgage. For example, don’t retire while in the process of relocating. If you want to move while maintaining your mortgage rates, you must have a written note from your employer’s HR department that confirms you can work from home. You can also prove to your lender that you are making a lateral career move when you relocate. A good example of this is a nurse moving to a new hospital.
2. Try not to work with a big bank. If you plan on working with a bank like Wells Fargo, Chase, or Bank of America, I recommend you reconsider. As a listing agent, I know that these big banks tend to have poor customer service, poor communication, and bad timing. Every listing agent has had a closing period take forever because a big bank is lagging behind. Local lenders tend to work better and faster, so consider asking around for a trusted lender when you move.
