Research suggests that moving can be as stressful as the loss of a loved one or a divorce
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) March 21, 2007
According to the US Census Bureau, 40 million people move every year. The maze of decisions these people face across the real estate, mortgage and moving worlds is notoriously complex, difficult to navigate and intimidating. Each decision comes with its own set of challenges and yet consumers do not have a comprehensive resource to turn to for help.
"Research suggests that moving can be as stressful as the loss of a loved one or a divorce," said Howard Wolk, CEO of TotalMove. "TotalMove was created to relieve that stress by giving home buyers and sellers a place to go where they can find guidance from an advocate for the consumer rather than a source that is biased to sell a particular product or service."
In today's real estate market, when consumers face increasing concerns every day around foreclosures and sub-prime mortgages, the need for help navigating the home buying process has never been stronger. TotalMove.com is an online toolkit geared toward informing, organizing and simplifying the moving experience, whether it's a move across the street or across the country, the first move or the last. The site offers friendly suggestions and tips on all aspects of the real estate and moving process. Customers can also access homes for sale, home valuation tools, downloadable checklists, personalized move calendaring tools and expert opinion articles.
In addition to TotalMove's online technology solution, consumers can take advantage of live telephone guidance free of charge. TotalMove's Real Estate Coordinators are experts (many have their own real estate licenses) who act as an advocate on the customer's behalf. All have significant experience in the real estate and relocation fields. Consumers can choose between managing a move on their own using TotalMove.com, using the services of a human advisor via the telephone, or a combination of both.
