Moving to a New Area? Here’s How We Can Help.

Moving is one of the most stressful activities that a family can go through. Long before the first box is packed, there’s the process of choosing your new home. Finding the right home is especially tough if you don’t know a lot about the city or region. One thing you can do to make moving less stressful is hire a local real estate agent.

Expert Knowledge of the Area

Real estate agents are experts about the town and cities where they work. After all, they are constantly out in the community, showing houses and meeting residents. They can let you know where to find the best schools, best restaurants, locations of churches and places to get the best shopping deals.

But, there is so much more to learn about a new community. You will want to know about local traditions, events and where to find community groups. You could wait and ask your new neighbours for the same information, but the problem is many people don’t know much about the areas outside of their specific neighborhood. An agent has to venture outside of their neighborhood and goes to areas that many people might not know about.

Real estate agents are also good sources of information for professional services. They will have recommendations for the best auto care, appliance repair and nearby home renovation companies (Click Here to view our Trusted Trades and Services Directory or download The Bill Parnaby Team App from the Google App Store or on Google Play with over 200 personally referred services at your fingertips). The knowledge they have is a result of their own living in the area. This type of knowledge is invaluable for new residents.

Finding the Right Home

When you are house shopping in an unfamiliar area, you are essentially operating in the dark. You might have an idea of what kind of house you like, but you can quickly become overwhelmed by the sheer number of homes on the market.

What you need to do is create filters to narrow down your search. A realtor can help you with this search, so you only visit homes that meet your needs. For example, a realtor can narrow the search to neighborhoods that have certain schools or are close to shopping centers. Or, they can let you know how traffic is during weekdays and what is it like during the winter months.

So, if you find yourself moving to a new area, strongly consider working with a real estate agent. We’ve been helping people buy and sell homes in Caledon and the surrounding area for over 25 years!
