Searching for a new home is time consuming in any instance; with an international move, there is the additional factor of your employee potentially dealing with a different property market than what they are used to, which can be confusing.
HCR take into account your corporate budget information and policy guidelines, before contacting your employee to identify the type of property required. During the conversation with the employee, our dedicated Relocation Consultant will also explain the different property types available in the specified location, as well as market conditions. We will also collect vital information such as anticipated move dates, family requirements such school proximity and consideration of pets, in order to manage expectations accordingly. A full needs analysis will be performed to ascertain any areas of concerns to your employee and their partner/family, and manage their expectations.
For a full Accompanied Home Search, as well as providing a shortlist of suitable properties, we create an itinerary of viewings, which will be accompanied by an Agent on behalf of our Destination Service Provider (DSP). The itinerary is sent to the employee (and their partner, where relevant) for approval in advance. As well as being able to answer questions about the surrounding area, the Agent will offer an unbiased opinion about each property, use their expertise to identify potential concerns and address them with the current Landlord or Letting Agent, and make recommendations to the employee and their partner/family.
HCR’s Consultants have longstanding relationships with Letting Agents in their individual locations worldwide, strengthening our position when negotiating rental costs and providing us with information on the best properties as soon as they come onto the market.
