How Relocation Experts Add Value to Your Florida Move

Below are the top reasons people choose to work with a relocation expert upon their move to Florida.

  1. Help You Locate "Best Fit" Properties
    Time, budget, desired property features, community amenities and available inventory all come into the mix when choosing your new Florida home. An experienced Florida relocation Realtor can help you locate "best fit" properties matching these variables to help simplify your transition.

    • Budget & Time Frame - Often, the need for a relocation can arise and provide a small window of time to locate a new home in a new state, such as a job transfer, family reasons or the need to be out of your current property by a certain date.
    • Desired Home Features & Amenities - Living in Florida is much different than the rest of the country. Understanding home features relating to hurricane protection, energy efficiency and the Florida climate are important to be informed about prior to making a purchase.
    • Available Real Estate For Sale - Besides properties listed on the MLS or off-market, new construction or previously owned, relocation experts can also help you choose between the various property types (single family, condo, townhome, villa, cottage, coach homes) and the communities that are focused more towards young families, retirement or lifestyle such as golf or boating.
  2. Prior Relocation Experience
    When moving to Florida from out-of-state, working with a real estate professional who brings proven, tested results in relocations with out-of-state buyers will help to reduce your stress and provide you with peace of mind during your transition. The relocation Realtors listed on our site have received many testimonials from past clients and we encourage you to read them by visiting their respective city page.
  3. Local Market Knowledge
    Our relocation experts posses a strong knowledge of their local housing market as they live, work and play in the towns they represent. In addition to providing helpful info on popular venues, local events and activities, they can also provide an accurate measure of annual living costs, including real estate taxes, insurance and HOA fees.
  4. Buyer Representation
    When working with a licensed Florida Realtor, one important benefit received is representation as the buyer. It's important to keep in mind that sellers and listing agents do not represent the buyer in a transaction, so having buyer representation is very important, especially when it comes to real estate contracts and negotiations.
