When a job opportunity comes a-knockin’, it may ask you to make some bold moves, and make them quickly. One such situation you might find yourself in is a job opening where everything is perfect —except the gig is in a new part of the country and you’ve only got a month to relocate!
Relocating for a job is stressful on its own. Now add the time constraint and you’ve got yourself an entirely different beast. Given the amount of things to coordinate, seemingly all at the same time, it’s natural to become frantic and overlook details when you’re under that kind of pressure. We made an infographic to help alleviate some of the stresses of your relocation because the steps you have to take can become a major distraction while you’re trying to learn your new job and leave a positive impression your coworkers and bosses.
The two most important items on the checklist, not surprisingly, is selling your current home and finding a new one. The timing for these activities is difficult to foresee. The first home your realtor shows you in your new area may be the house of your dreams, or you may find nothing you like in the first month and need to arrange temporary housing accommodations.
In terms of selling your home, the timing can be just as unpredictable. One way you can take control of your time constraint is by selling your home to a property company specializing in buying homes “as-is” for cash at a fair price. This is a great option to take a big “to-do” item off the table and give yourself more time to make sure all your other relocation tasks are executed to perfection.
