  • SportsRelocation.com – Upper Income Relocation: Unique Properties, Unique Problems

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Beverly Hills, Home Selling in Beverly Hills, Celebrity Homes in Beverly Hills  |  August 22, 2011 4:28 PM  |  578 views  |  No comments

    It’s time for a heart-to heart talk with those of you out there who are in the income level that can afford to buy a luxury home.  We’re referring to homes around $5 million and up in Beverly Hills, or New York City, or Dallas.  When we start talking about the stratosphere of real estate deals we start talking about a unique set of circumstances and possible problems.

    Now, you can randomly pick a real estate agent out of the phone book because you can’t be bothered with the hassle of searching for a reliable agent, or you can call the real estate pros at SportsRelocation.com and let us do for you what we have done for so many in the sports and entertainment businesses, namely find a buyer or find the perfect home.

    Think of us at SportsRelocation.com as a clearinghouse for luxury homes.  Because we have been in the business for so many years, dealing with exactly this type of home, we have established a working and trusted relationship with many athletes and entertainers, the exact type of people who can afford this type of home.  We get phone calls daily from sellers wanting to know if we know of anyone in the market for the style of house they are selling.  We get phone calls daily from buyers looking for a specific type of home and because of our contacts in the industry we can find exactly what they want.

    This is a unique market and it calls for professional real estate experts who have unique job skills and unique contacts in the real estate industry.  We would never do this because our reputation is built on privacy and trust, but if we were to write a list here of all the athletes and entertainers we have helped over the years it would read like a Whos Who of the industry.  We don’t say that to honk our own horn but rather to impress upon you the importance of working with experts who have the specific kinds of contacts that you need if you are buying or selling a luxury home.  There is way too much money involved in one of these transactions; you can’t afford to be working with a real estate agent who is not established and who has never handled a sale of this type before.

    And here is an added bonus when you work with the staff at SportsRelocation.com: we not only handle your real estate needs, whether they be short-term or permanent, but we handle all facets of relocation.  That’s right, we handle the transportation of your vehicles and belongings, we put you in touch with the most trusted professionals in insurance, banking, and finance, and we can arrange short term transportation for you whether it be the need of a car or a private jet.

    You see, we really are the RELOCATION experts.  Now seriously, doesn’t it just make good sense for you to call us if you are in the market to buy or sell a luxury home? Experience the difference for yourself. Visit us online.

  • Athlete Relocation – A Busy Week at SportsRelocation.com – Player Relocation NBA, MLB, NFL

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Beverly Hills, Home Selling in Beverly Hills, Celebrity Homes in Beverly Hills  |  August 22, 2011 4:25 PM  |  596 views  |  No comments

    Make a list of what you consider to be the top ten major cities in America and chances are that we have been involved in a real estate transaction in most of those cities this week.

    It has been a crazy week for us at SportsRelocation.com and we couldn’t be happier.  How busy are we talking about?  Well, in the last seven days we have helped a total of 35 professional athletes with their relocation and real estate needs.  It breaks down like this:

    • 27 NFL players
    • 7 NBA players
    • 1 MLB player

    Obviously with the end of the NFL lockout we expected to see an increase in business this week, but honestly, this has been one crazy week.  We have been putting homes on the market to sell then turning around and finding suitable short term housing for these athletes.  While doing that we have started the process through sit-downs with families of finding long-term, permanent housing in the new cities where their husbands and fathers are now employed.  Welcome to the professional sports business! This is the world these athletes live and work in and this is the world that we at Sports Relocation.com thrive in.

    You see, we have made it our job to establish a network of real estate professionals in all the major cities in America.  That was no small task.  Stop and think of how many cities in the United States have major sports teams; that’s how many real estate markets we have to be familiar with and have affiliates in.  It has taken years to establish these contacts, men and women we trust enough to call them affiliates of SportsRelocation.com.  We have a reputation to uphold and we won’t attach our name to any real estate professional unless we completely trust them.  That way we can guarantee that the athlete who comes to us with a relocation need will only be serviced by a professional that we have faith in.

    It is the only way we know to do business in this professional world and it beautifully explains how we have managed to stay at the top of the relocation business all of these years.  This is a highly specialized business dealing with highly specialized athletes.  We understand their specific needs because we handle those needs on a daily basis.  And we are not just talking about real estate; our business includes all facets of relocation, i.e. real estate, transporting goods and vehicles, finding the best financing, covering insurance needs, procuring transportation, etc.

    Granted, this has been a busy week, busier than normal for sure, but not one of those 35 athletes went away disappointed.  That is a guarantee we make to each of our clients.  Give us a call and find out what we can do for you next time relocation becomes a reality.

  • How is the Real Estate Market in Playa Del Rey, California? 90293 Playa Del Rey Real Estate

    Posted Under: Market Conditions in Playa del Rey, Home Buying in Playa del Rey, Home Selling in Playa del Rey  |  August 5, 2011 1:55 PM  |  558 views  |  No comments

    Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. Since this is a Buyer’s market prices are not yet moving higher as excess inventory is consumed. However, as the supply and demand trends continue, the market moves into the Seller’s zone, and we are likely to see upward pressure on pricing.

    In terms of supply and demand, the market is getting cooler – more supply is coming on the market relative to the sales demand. However, in recent weeks prices have been moving higher. Since it is technically a Buyer’s market, this price trend may be a result of improved quality (newer, larger homes) of the homes being listed.
