Planning for a Job Relocation.

Job Relocation


Congratulations!  You found your dream job.  What you didn't expect was to leave your home and to relocate to an entirely new city.  Whether your move is across the state, country or even the globe, it brings a number of challenges beyond simply changing your street address. Learning about a new community, tackling a new culture, and moving a long distance is stressful. Here are tips from the Relocation Services Team at Old Dominion Realty to make the transition easier.

Job Relocation Research

  1. Check Out Your New Hometown
    Careful planning and research will make your move easier.  When you find you are moving, surf the Web to research communities near your new employer.  Learn about the area's economy and housing market.  Your new job may come with a higher salary; however, if the local economy is more expensive than the one you're leaving, you may not find yourself as far ahead as you think.

  2. Make Preview Trips
    Although in today's digital society it is possible to make a cross-country move entirely online, it is wise to make a few visits to the area before you move. That's the best way to learn facts like where the best schools are located, when rush hour is the worst, and how far the nearest restaurants, shopping areas, and other local things to do are located from your potential new home.

  3. Find a REALTOR® in Your New Hometown
    When you begin to search for a home in your new community, find a REALTOR® with a reputation as a local expert in the community. Your real estate agent should be knowledge about local housing values as well as be able to provide helpful insights about nearby amenities such as schools and churches.

    Your REALTOR® can be a tremendous asset when relocating. Old Dominion Realty has helped many clients make the move to Harrisonburg and its surrounding areas.  Our Relocation Services extend beyond those moving to the Virginia real estate area. As a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, we can connect you with quality real estate companies across the globe to make the relocation process easier for you.

  4. Research Mortgage Lenders
    Your REALTOR® can provide you with a list of mortgage lenders with whom they have done previous business.  Comparison shop for the best interest rates and closing costs.  Remember that the cheapest rates do not equate to the best service. A reputation of great service coupled with a stress-free closing can save you time and money in the long run.  Old Dominion Realty has teamed up with VBS Mortgage  to offer you the best of real estate and home mortgage services.

  5. Downsize Before You Move
    Moving companies charge by weight, so downsizing will make your move less costly. You can sell items before you move and purchase new items when you arrive that fit your new home perfectly. Since you already have to pack and sort, take the time to get rid of items you are no longer using or no longer need.

    Job Relocation Change Address

  6. Change Your Address
    Let all of your accounts know your new address as soon as you do, so you will not miss any bills. Consider setting up automatic payments for the months you will be focused on moving so you are not adding late fees to the already high costs of moving. Also, inform the post office of your new address so that your mail will get forwarded.

  7. Get Help from a Relocation Expert 
    Contact Linda Goodson, Old Dominion Realty's Relocation Services Director, to learn how Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Old Dominion Realty will make your relocation easier.

Old Dominion Realty and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® Work Together

Last year 36 million people moved in the US giving reasons such as employment changes, family reasons, and retirement.  Some moved just across town; others across the country or even the globe.

Linda Goodson Old Dominion Realty Relocation Director
Linda Goodson, Old Dominion Realty's Relocation Director, explained in a recent ODR webinar that about ten years ago Old Dominion Realty found the need as a local real estate company to find companies outside of their local community to help their customers.  That is when Old Dominion Realty applied to join Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®.


Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® is a collection of over 500 of the finest residential real estate firms around the world, producing more annual home sales than any other real estate network.   As a member of this network, Old Dominion Realty's customers can be connected with an expert REALTOR® anywhere in the world.


After a rather stringent interview process, Leading Real Estate Companies chose Old Dominion Realty to be a part of their affiliation.  Linda Goodson commented, "We are very proud to be a part of the Leading RE network.  Leading RE firms are located not only in the US, but across the world with affiliates selling more real estate than any of the larger brands. "


The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reports that approximately 90 percent home buyers searched online during their home buying process.  Old Dominion Realty and LeadingRE.com's affiliation is a logical match.


When local real estate customers interested in relocating come to Old Dominion Realty, an interview is performed to determine the buyer's wants and needs.  Old Dominion Realty enters the customer's information into LeadingRE.com to be matched with a Leading RE REALTOR® where they will be moving.

Real estate buyers can expect exceptional customer service from Leading RE members because they are required to have additional training, more designations, and be considered a top sales person in their markets.


Old Dominion Realty home sellers benefit from ODR's Leading RE affiliation because their properties are listed on LeadingRE.com receiving visibility both nationally and worldwide.


At Old Dominion Realty you can feel confident having more than 50 years' real estate experience behind you.  In business since 1962, Old Dominion Realty's focus has been on delivering top-notch customer service to its Virginia and West Virginia Real Estate customers.
