Are you tempted by the lifestyle and the seemingly endless job opportunities in and around Silicon Valley?
How do you decide if a move to the Bay Area is right for you?
Before you even start talking salary, benefits and move logistics, make sure you do your homework and do a little pre-relocation decision analysis. From realistic expectation-setting to understanding family needs to anticipating costs, getting some knowledgable pre-decision support assures you that the decision to move forward is the right one.
Completing a thorough Needs Assessment means answering such questions as… What are my individual and family lifestyle requirements? Should I buy or rent a new home? How much will it cost and do I qualify for a mortgage? What are the costs associated with moving? Should I rent or sell my current home? What neighborhoods are within commuting distance of my workplace? Can I afford to live in a Bay Area neighborhood that I like? Will my kids be able to attend a good school? How will my family get established in our new location?
Answering these questions honestly and knowledgeably will help ensure your relocation success. We’ve helped numerous families answer these questions and would be delighted to help you through the process too.
