Your Social Network Can Help You Find the Right Home
So, you've decided to move to the Clearwater area. Good choice! And I'd be happy to help you find the perfect home in the right neighborhood for you and your family.
But, don't forget to lean on your online social network for information and support. As you can see from the list of sites I use below, I like social networks. And I know how powerful they can be.
I’m talking about Facebook and other social media sites. If you’re a regular online, let your friends and contacts know where you’re planning to move and ask them for information about the area. Ask about neighborhoods, schools, local parks and attractions, favorite restaurants and other places that may soon be a big part of your new life. If your Facebook friends don’t know themselves, maybe they have other friends that do.
You can do the same thing with other services like Pinterest or Twitter. Tweeting something like: “Planning to move to Clearwater. What are the best schools in town? #Clearwater” is a simple way to solicit information from a variety of people.
If you already have a job in the new location, make sure to ask your new company’s human resources department for any assistance they can offer you. Find out specifics like where you’ll need to go to get your car registered and a new driver’s license. Churches can be an excellent resource as well.
Of course, you’re going to want to see your options personally before you make any decision. And you can plan ahead for your scouting trip by using services like Yelp to pinpoint specific shops, services and restaurants that will be important to you.
And having prepared before you tour the area with a Realtor, you’ll be in a much better position to ask specific questions and provide information that will make your search for a new home a much easier and enjoyable experience.
Please contact me to see how I can help you with buying or selling a home with these trends in mind!
