Relocating to Los Angeles or Santa Clarita Valley Cities – or elsewhere, you should view our seven tips on how to keep safe when it comes to the things you should consider when relocating.
I reminds me of when I was in a new “not local” area handling a REO asset assigned to us by Citibank. I was in need of a locksmith to come out and re-key the property.
The seller had just been evicted and the bank wanted me to take possession of their asset, secure it and start the premarketing of the property for sale.
In this case, I went onto my iPhone and started to search for a Local Locksmith. During each call I asked “are you a true local Lock smith.” Each of the vendors that were saying they were, “really local”, were only lead generation companies. They were not locksmiths at all.
In fact, I never found a “local” locksmith. The one that came out was from over 60 miles away and did not have a real office. He worked out of his car. Now, having said that, he was good and fairly priced.
He had the proper “insurance” coverage, just no “real office”.
However, what if things did not go well? What if I needed to contact him if and when a problem arose?
It may have not been a good thing. The same pitfalls can come in the way of some Corporate Relocation and some online Relocation companies. Some have a standard they set for the agents they hire and send leads to. Some, don’t.
