Corporate Relocation Services
The Corporate Relocation Service team assists corporations handling employee relocations.
Backed by a comprehensive menu of services, Shorewest can help you and your company make the move easier for all involved - whether across the state, country or around the world. Here are the areas we can assist with:
Policy development & Review
The Relocation Center will gladly review your company’s current policy and make suggestions, or help you develop a relocation policy that will fit your needs - no matter how big or small your company. Outlining all the policies and benefits provided to your employees, we consider your company’s relocation volume on an annual basis, and includes all facets of relocation, from transportation of household goods to selling the departure area property to finding a new residence as well as advancing equity.
Marketing assistance/pre-move counseling.
A major source of concern for many homeowners is selling their current property. As a full-service and a third-party relocation company, the Shorewest Relocation Center can offer invaluable marketing assistance and implementation of an effective sales strategy whether moving on your own or through a corporate move. The relocation counselor will assist in finding a qualified sales professional and will be involved in the process until the property is sold and closed.
Buyer Value Option program.
This program is an alternate to a corporate traditional home buyout program. No appraisals or inspections are required; rather, the homeowner (transferee) is responsible for listing his home and finding a buyer who is a qualified purchaser for the home. When the transferee finds an acceptable offer from a purchaser, Shorewest signs the offer documents, closes the transaction with the homeowner (transferee) and proceeds to close the sale with the buyer on behalf of the corporation. Once completed, all expenses are tallied and Shorewest bills the corporation for the employee’s relocation expenses per policy. Shorewest also offers Expense Tracking, a fee-based service for corporate relocation expense reimbursement.
Home purchase program.
This program is available to corporations who want to relieve the employee of the stress of selling a home and anxiety of family separation while the employee is working at the new destination. Typically, a fair market value offer (based upon two independent fee appraisals and inspections) is offered to the employee after 60 to 90 days of marketing with a qualified real estate professional. During the offer period, the transferee is encouraged to seek a better offer while marketing the home. If the home is not sold during this period, the transferee can exercise his option and sell his home to the Shorewest Relocation Center on behalf of the corporation. We will then professionally manage the resale of the property to minimize costs for your corporation.
Group move services.
We have extensive experience working with corporations to facilitate a group move no matter how big or small. We will work with you to customize a program to fit your needs in the planning stages. Contact Tonya Krebs at [email protected].
