The Relocation Time Frame
Obviously, one of the greatest challenges during athlete relocation is finding a suitable place to live. Then the next decision is short-term housing or long-term housing, then finding that housing, then moving in, and on and on, and is it any wonder that relocation is a stressful time?
There are several things to consider when making these decisions. If you lease, you’ll need to sign a lease agreement. These are usually three, six, or twelve months in length.
If you choose to buy, remember that closing often can take many months, and the same is true when selling your previous residence.
All of these factors need to be considered. If you are a journeyman player who has a history of switching teams often, it may well be that permanent housing, as in purchasing a home, is not your best option. If your playing contract is long-term, chances are good that purchasing a home would be the best option.
Sit down with a financial planner and work through these difficult decisions, and have the pros at Sportsrelocation.com sit in on that meeting. Relocation is our business, and we can provide some valuable input into this discussion.
