Hi, I understand the Villages has a relocation program? Has anyone used it or have any pros or cons about it?
Thank you

I used it ten years ago and was very pleased. Took care of the sale and the move. Not sure what it's like now.

So if you speak to your rep, they can go over, how it works. They find the best track record real estate agents in your area. After all they you want you to sell quickly. You contact them, interview and choose who you like.

Default Relo services

We tried using Relocation services a year ago. Unfortunately, the two agents we interviewed jacked up the price in order to recover the relocation fee from TV. We weren't wise enough to understand how unhappy that made our real estate agent. We are how $35K lower than we started out at in February 2018. Just lowered the price again today as we are coming anyway! (Why delay retirement and fun...). Will be looking next week for a PV rental until our house sells.

Secondly, the moving services that they have contact you seem to be about $1-2K higher than going out on the market ourselves. Just took bids today and they are coming in at $1-2K lower for the same level of them packing and moving with one month storage. Again, I think there is a premium on the referral that TV takes.

I know it works well for some and that is wonderful! But it didn't work for us. Just our experience!

We used it to sell some swamp land in Delaware (long story), and it was more of a reference service for a Delaware realtor, in the end it worked our better than we expected, we got rid of the swamp, and actually covered all costs and got a few bucks back.

I believe that their cut is ten percent of the commission on selling your home outside of TV.

We used it and found it not helpful. Better to go with recommendations from people in your home area, which is what we ended up doing. The relocation people really don't know inside info for all the different areas. I think they just work off of a list. I recommend doing your own scouting work.

Witness Protection. Absolutely. Several in the neighboring Village. I'd take them over the Problem that many have in our neighborhood.

Our best friends used the service you speak of and the entire thing was seamless, not cheap but seamless. Wish I knew about it I would have paid for sure. Let us know how you do with this. I would like to do it on an InterVillage Move. Is that bad? Does that make me lazy? We've moved 22 times, we've had enough. Good Luck To Ya!

I missed your post-CFrance, I'm sorry. I would be 1000% more inclined to go with your version as you have led little old me in only good directions on other issues. Good Job. You are way overdue for a Killer Joke! Thanks.
