When companies need to move employees who are also homeowners, they have to make the transition as painless as possible (or risk losing a valued asset). UrbanBound is a Chicago-based professional relocation group who know the landscape. “Even the most hands-on HR departments in the world can have too much on their plates to give relocation the attention it needs,” they point out. Thus the $16 billion relocation industry!
If you’re contemplating a relocation to Lewes any time soon, even without the services of a specialist, there’s much we can learn from the do’s and don’ts they offer. Here are some key don’ts:
If relocation to Delaware or Sussex County will find you entering unfamiliar territory, don’t rely on MapQuest to tell you how long you drive to work will be. Take a serious look at public transportation, too, as you choose where you want to live in relation to your new job.
When you are relocating, the difference between a $30,000 and $45,000 salary (or even $70,000 and $100,000) might actually amount to a decrease in real earnings. When you’re considering cost of living differences for relocation to or from Lewes, don’t be tempted to stop at the obvious living expenses, like housing and food. Will you be doing more holidays traveling to visit those you left behind? Will the kids wind up in private schools if available public schools aren’t up to snuff? You’re looking for all cost differences…which can go the other way, too!
The experts mention (politely) that not only do you have to do the research; you also have to accept the results. School quality really can vary. Even noise quality can be a factor that drives location. Best practice? Find out what people have to say about where they live, good and bad. When you plan Lewes relocation carefully, you’ll take advantage of your new opportunity while avoiding common oversights. And if relocation is in your future, I’m here to help you find the right — and practical — new place to call home.

When you see any title here containing the words “Delaware Real Estate Investment,” you won’t be terribly surprised if the gist turns out to be what a good idea! When you’ve had the experience of seeing clients succeed with many real estate investment projects, it’s an unavoidable conclusion. Unfortunately, also pretty yawn-worthy.
That’s why I was pleased to come across Grant Cardone’s piece in Entrepreneur magazine. We all like to see our opinions agreed with—but doubly so when you’re offered specifics that bolster your own conclusions. The article listed reasons why real estate investments are “your smartest investment.” Here are some of them:
Those are four solid advantages of the eight detailed in Cardone’s article. The last reason was less demonstrable but, IMHO, just as real:
If you are an investor who is beginning to look over the year’s performance and thinking about how you want 2017 to look, I hope you’ll do two things. First: take a serious look at whether a Delaware real estate investment might make a smart addition to your current portfolio. Second: call me!
