A real estate company that is part of a national referral network can provide you with a variety of information about the city to which you are moving. Information is available on property values, taxes, cost of living comparisons, schools, day care facilities, reasonable rates and material for updating property, rental or interim housing, and employment opportunities. Ask your local real estate agent for an orientation on the new area, maps, and community profiles. Some real estate companies also provide travel arrangements and reservations. For more information on your new city, contact a real estate professional.
