When relocating, it can be easy for your transferee to get riddled with anxiety about all the “have-to’s” and forget about the positive changes that will come with their move. They may have to sell their home and on top of that the search for a new home, which can be daunting. They will also have to get acclimated to a new position with new coworkers. And what if they decided to rent rather than purchase? More and more transferees are deciding to rent for all kinds of reasons. If they own a pet or two, they will have to find a pet friendly rental, potentially creating more challenges.
Below are a few key things to keep in mind when talking to your office movers.
Hire a rental finding company. Renting is on the rise. For those relocating, this method of living makes the most sense, especially for short term assignments. To save your transferee stress and time, consider hiring a rental finding company. They will be able to take care of your transferee’s needs and transition them smoothly into their new location. Having a company assisting with their rental process can also reduce the amount of days your transferee is in temporary housing. This allows them to settle in sooner, transition much easier with just one move and it saves on the temporary housing costs paid by their employers.
Provide them with enough support and resources. Give them enough resources so they have what they need to make decisions and know who to call if they need help. You want them to feel as stress-free as possible. If they have pets, credit concerns or other special needs,a rental finding company will have the helpful tools on hand to assist the transferee. Tools to create their own pet resume, explain credit mishaps and help review school districts are just a few ways they can help.
Highlight the benefits of accepting the new assignment and be positive concerning the relocation process. When possible, talk up the relocation and move. This can be an exciting time for them and their company. They will be exposed to new experiences and people while helping the business they are relocating with, grow. All of the stress that may come during the transition will be worth it.
Stay Informed. Being educated about the market and the rental assistance process is key in providing your transferee with the best service option and offers the best chance for a successful outcome. A positive outlook about their experience and building a rapport with a rental finding company offers you the opportunity to expand your resources and options to find your transferee the best experts in their new area to insure a successful transition.
