Moving to a new city or town can be a wonderful adventure. People who have made many job transfers and moves recommend researching your destination city before the move. Visit the city on a workday and a weekend so you can see what kind of place it is in which to live and work. Use the Internet to research the area’s amenities and subscribe to your destination city’s local newspaper. South Florida is a great place to live and work. The life style is different, no matter what your needs its here, Ocean, Lakes, Golf Courses, Horse Ranches, Country Living South Florida has it all.
 
Find out from your employer what kind of relocation package will be provided. Will the cost of the move be paid for? If you have a home to sell in your current city, will your employer help with the closing costs or guarantee a buy-out if the house doesn't sell right away? Get such offers of assistance in writing. Will you be able to afford the cost of living in your new city? It is essential to figure out what you will need in order for the move to work for you.

Here are some practical tips to help you with a relocation transition:
* Move quickly. Extended good-byes are painful and upsetting.

* Conserve cash. Have an emergency fund for surprises that may occur before, during, and right after the move.

* Be open to your new environment. The new area may be just as good as or better than the place you are leaving.

* Understand that your children may experience loss and confusion. They may act out if they can't express their frustration or sadness.
