Relocation and the Current Real Estate Market
Nothing affects the cost of your relocation program -- and the overall experience for your relocating employees -- like the state of the real estate market. In this informative episode, our subject matter experts discuss the current state of the market, trends they're seeing and where they predict things are heading, and how corporate relocation managers can stay one step ahead of every challenge the market conjures. Join Betsy Roche, VP of the Weichert Broker Network, and Joe Palumbo, VP of Real Estate Services, for a valuable and insightful market discussion with Laura Levenson, Practice Leader of our Advisory Services group. It's 30 minutes that can help you make work happen!
The Current Real Estate Market and Its Impact on Relocation
Our quarterly look at current trends across the US real estate market (with some insight to the Canadian market) and how they are impacting relocating employees and other buyers. Topics include the current lack of inventory and higher home prices; how these and other challenges are affecting buyers, particularly young professionals who may be looking to relocate into their first home; how companies are adjusting relocation/home buying benefits to accommodate the current market; the shape of things to come; and much more. It's a half hour of valuable content presented by Laura Levenson, Practice Leader in Weichert Workforce Mobility's Advisory Services group; Joe Palumbo, Vice President of Real Estate Services for Weichert Workforce Mobility; and Betsy Roche, Vice President of the Weichert Broker Network.
Talent Mobility and the Ukraine Crisis
As shocking as Russia's invasion of Ukraine was to the entire free world, it was even more traumatic for people in the country working on assignment. In this special episode we are joined by several key service partners who share insights to the situation on the ground in Ukraine and offer practical solutions to some of the difficult situations companies with international assignees in Ukraine are facing. Topics include safety measures for assignees and their families, immigration and evacuation, and household goods shipping, to name a few. It's actionable info for meeting a terrifyingly complex challenge.
Making Your Relocation Policy More Inclusive and Diverse
While developing a more diverse workforce and inclusive mobility program is key to fostering an environment that sparks innovation, companies need to be mindful of the challenges facing their LGBTQ+ assignees and how to respond to them. In this episode, Laura Levenson of our Advisory Services group offers best practices and insight for companies that want to build a safe and more inclusive mobility program and policy -- not just because it's the right thing to do, but because the best ideas come from collaboration between so many different people.
Relocating Employees and the Surging US Real Estate Market
While the world slowly inches back toward some sense of post-pandemic normalcy, the US Real Estate market has been incredibly robust, seemingly breaking new records each month. In this episode, we examine the US housing market from the perspective of relocating employees and the companies that move them. You'll learn the red flags to watch for, benefits (and policy adjustments) that make sense, how relocating employees can compete with other sellers, considerations for employees going on international assignment and general risk avoidance tips.

Home Valuation in the Age of Pandemic
One of the most important components of any relocation is the appraising and valuation of employee-owned real estate. In this episode, we check back in with Joe Palumbo, Weichert's VP of Real Estate Services, to discuss the ways COVID has changed the valuation game, which trends predicted when the virus first took hold will remain in play for 2021, and new wrinkles that corporate mobility managers will need to watch out for.
