Do you need to relocate for work?
Depending on how far you’re moving, that can be a big job that requires a lot of time, effort, and money — hopefully, the new employer will help pay for the cost of the move.
In fact, if you’re wondering what sort of costs to expect, here’s a general breakdown to help!
Costs of Selling — If planning to sell a house by going the traditional route on the MLS through a real estate agent, one should expect to spend 7% to 10% of the sales price of their home on home prep, commissions, and closing costs. On a $250,000 home, that’s up to $25,000. If your home needs a lot of repairs, then this cost will obviously increase.
Costs of Moving — Moving itself can also be pretty spending. The cost here will depend on how far you’re moving and how much stuff you’re going to take along. You might need to rent a truck or even hire a moving company. Make sure to check and see if your new job will help with these relocation expenses.
Costs of Settling In — Don’t forget to budget for the costs of settling into your new home. Whether buying or renting, there are some upfront costs for that… including furnishing the home or updating decor as needed to fit your new location.
