Simplifying the Relocation Process - Power Tools for Relocation
Relocation can be a major hurdle in the recruitment process. The expense and stress of relocating can prevent you from getting the candidates you want. To reduce the impediments associated with relocating candidates, we offer a suite of value-added relocation services.
Cost-of-Living Analysis/City Profile. We use current profiles
of more that 700 U.S. and Canadian cities to determine the net effect
that relocation will have on an employee's income. Profile information
includes cost-of-living indices, housing and rental information, weather,
population, taxes, crime rates, health care, elder care, day care, education
information and much more.
Home Marketing. To help sell a new employee's home, our MRI corporate
home marketing service accurately matches and selects top real estate
agents to work with each employee. Agents develop a comprehensive market
review, marketing plan and other professional information and support
to sell homes quickly and efficiently.
Home Finding. This service matches the new employee's desired
home and community characteristics with similar attributes in the new
area. Elements include phone counseling, personalized area information
kits, area orientation, VIP community tours, counseling and referral
services for childcare, elder care and spousal employment.
Special Mortgage Services. Employees receive special VIP access
to leading national lenders, a dedicated team of mortgage counselors,
preferred rates, closing cost savings, liberal qualifying ratios, credit
for accompanying spouse income, free pre-qualification letter and a
quick loan decision.
Reduced Moving Costs. Through a special move-management program,
you benefit from special savings and discounts negotiated by MRI with
the country's leading van lines. These include more than a 50% reduction
(from full tariff rates) on all interstate moves, free insurance/valuation,
discounted storage services, waived peak season charges and special
rates for cars.
Home Buy-out Programs/Expense Tracking. MRI offers end-to-end
closing services for nominal fees, including a guaranteed purchase offer,
amended value sale and buyer value option. In addition, this service
manages the expense payout and reimbursement function, including report
auditing, data entry, payroll department interface and more.
Other Services. The following services are also available to
you or the candidate at no cost: address change notification; assistance
in finding temporary corporate housing or home rentals; investment,
financial planning and insurance counseling; and an educational library.
