Considerations for Relocation
Narrow your relocation search to a specific region or a couple of cities, instead of focusing on the "South", select a state or a couple of cities to concentrate your efforts.
Subscribing to the Sunday edition of a city’s newspaper or finding the online version of the paper is a good way to learn about housing costs, politics, and business news.
Contacting the Chamber of Commerce will help you become familiar with the culture and hiring climate of the cities where you seek to relocate.
Real estate agencies can help you find a new place to live, but they can also provide information on the hiring climate and economy of the city of relocation.
Be sure to compare salaries for cities you are considering. How much will you need to maintain your standard of living in a new city? Use a salary calculator to determine this.
If part of a two-career family, career plans and goals for both partners should be considered and discussed.
