Reno, NV (PRWEB) January 5, 2007
Among the more than 39 million Americans that changed their addresses last year, many were victims of moving company fraud. Selecting a reputable mover is one of the free, money-saving topics provided by GuideToRealty.com, the online consumer resource for real estate buyers and sellers.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration identifies rogue movers as companies that deliberately give low estimates and, once a homeowner's possessions are in their truck, raise their rates and threaten to hold the goods until the homeowner pays up. The GuideToRealty.com Moving Guide (http://www.guidetorealty.com) offers key advice in finding a reputable mover as well as moving tips, pre-moving day checklists and cost-cutting shortcuts.
"Moving is a costly proposition, but there are many ways homeowners can reduce their exposure to fraudulent movers and outrageous pricing," says GuideToRealty.com vice president John Spottiswood. "Be sure your mover is licensed, insured and is a member of the American Moving and Storage Association. Whether you're relocating locally or across country, GuideToRealty.com can help before, during and after the move."
In addition to helping consumers find the right moving company, The Moving Guide provides a comprehensive listing of hidden costs during relocation, including packing materials, cleaning supplies, storage costs, food and lodging. Other helpful tips for moving can be found in unexpected places. Spottiswood points to a GuideToLenders.com article that helps homeowners identify travel, household packing and vehicle relocation costs as homeowner tax deductions (http://www.guidetolenders.com/calculators/article-new-top10deductions.jsp).
Even if a person is not moving, GuideToRealty.com (http://www.guidetorealty.com) offers prudent advice on home valuation analysis, hidden costs of home ownership and financing guides. Homeowners can gather invaluable information about demographics and the real estate marketplace. The online loan calculator and real estate agent profiles put homeowners in a strategic position when considering buying or selling a home.
