Relocations are becoming the “new norm” these days as our society becomes increasingly mobile.

This is especially true for residents of Illinois, who for a myriad of reasons are fleeing the state in ever increasing numbers. Whether you are moving for professional reasons, financial reasons, or just the plain old reason that you’re fed up with Illinois, it’s essential to develop a relocation plan ahead of time.

First, plan an exploratory trip.

Put together a list of a few possible relocation spots, and investigate those areas in person.  If possible, schedule an interview or casual meeting with a possible employer.  Meet with local schools if time permits. Spend a few days familiarizing yourself with a relocation spot so that you can further research that area from afar.

Research the new area.

How much will you save by relocation?  If you’re relocating from Illinois, chances are you’ll save a ton in property taxes alone. Illinois’ exorbitant property taxes can be a significant strain on the family budget, not to mention the higher cost of real estate itself in Illinois. If you put together a projected monthly budget, you may be shocked at the amount you’ll save by a mere change of address.  If you’re a retiree, research the tax ramifications that may come along with a relocation. In many cases, you’ll find a significant tax advantage by moving out of Illinois.

Start planning your move.

Things may begin to move quickly at this point; in today’s real estate market, you may find you sell your home quicker than you anticipated. If it takes longer than you’d expect, never fear; that gives you the opportunity to take your time in planning out your landing spot. Regardless of which situation you face, you will find yourself soon needing to make a final decision, either on a location, a job opportunity, or an offer on your home.  If it makes financial, personal, and professional sense to relocate, take the plunge! Once you make the move out of Illinois, we can assure you you’ll never regret it.
