When Can you Move, when can your family move?

When do you need to move-in? When can you move-in? Is your time frame flexible? This may be already predetermined due to a change of employment relocation plan. We may need to arrange for temporary housing and move part of the family first then move the remaining family members at a later date..

Being flexible on when you can move is an advantage when buying your new home and will become a bargaining point.

Temporary housing

In many cases, relocation involves temporary housing. We can arrange for short-term housing in stages to provide at first for one person and then rent larger short-term housing, but only when the remaining family members are ready. By doing this in stages you can save money by renting the rooms that you will need.

We will work with you and adjust based upon your needs and timing. And as always we are here to help reduce the stress of Relocation.

How much can you afford? You will need to allocate funds for different types of expenses such as moving, storage, temporary housing, deposits and others. These fees are not related to your mortgage. You also will need to determine how much you need to put down and what type of loan you qualify for by working with a mortgage specialist.
