Corporate relocation assistance programs exist to facilitate the corporate employees relocation to a new location. Relocating upsets a familys routine and requires moving to a new and unfamiliar environment. The employee often has to adjust to a new position while dealing with all the hassles of selling a home in the old location and finding a new one in the new location.
Home finding assistance programs are structured to relive as much stress as possible from a relocating individual and his or her family. A professional & knowledgeable Realtor with relocation industry training and experience can often reduce the stress of locating suitable housing in the new location. This is especially true if the Realtor is familiar with the entire county and can therefore make suggestions and advise the transferees with regards to the relative merits of alternative locations taking into consideration the individual needs of the relocating individual and his or her family.
Home selling assistance programs are structured to relieve the relocating employee of the burden of paying taxes on the compensation received by the employee when the employer pays for the expense of selling the employees home in the old location. It is important that established procedures be followed exactly so as not to jeopardize the shift of taxation liability from the employee to the employer. For that reason, third party relocation companies prefer to use experienced agents who understand the relocation process and the importance of following directions.
