BOCA RATON, Fla. (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
Every year, hundreds of thousands of U.S. servicemen and women receive Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders, causing them and their families to relocate at a moment’s notice.
“Receiving PCS orders can be daunting for military families, as they have to suddenly uproot and transition to a new life in another place,” said RE/MAX Complete Solutions Broker-Owner Jenniffer Lee, a Certified Military Residential Specialist who is trained and equipped to handle the home purchase needs of active duty and former military clients. “Planning ahead and attention to detail is critical.”
In honor of Military Family Appreciation Month in November, RE/MAX Complete Solutions, which serves Palm Beach and Broward Counties, lists the following three tips to help military families that have received PCS orders seamlessly transition:
No. 1: Line up housing for the new PCS. “Whether you choose to live on or off base, acting fast and getting a place lined up sooner rather than later will put your mind at ease,” said Lee. “You should also contact the family center at your new base, which can offer relocation assistance programs that provide moving information to you and your family.”
No. 2: Schedule your move ASAP after receiving the PCS order. Doing so will give you a better chance of requesting the move-out/move-in dates you want. “Once your move is scheduled, it is imperative to start getting your belongings organized for the movers,” added Lee. “To ensure the process is smooth, label boxes with color-coded stickers. For example, use red stickers on boxes that will go in bedroom one at your new house, then put a red sticker on the door of bedroom one. This helps make the process go by faster and relieves the huge headache of opening each box with the movers to find out where everything goes.”
No. 3: Find a qualified local Realtor. A reputable local Realtor will have insider knowledge, working relationships with lenders and listings that buyers will most likely not be able to find on their own. “It is also essential to find a Realtor who has experience and a proven track record working with military personnel,” concluded Lee, several of whom’s Realtors at RE/MAX Complete Solutions are Certified Military Residential Specialists.
