Local Realtor Ross Winchel, team broker for The Koffman Group with Royal Shell Real Estate, recently offered tips for those relocating to Southwest Florida via an online video segment.

Winchel recorded a North American Speaker Series segment in which he discusses moving to the region. The NALA’s NASS gives small- and medium-sized businesses an online platform to present stories and industry expertise to a diverse, hyper-local listening audience through audio segments.

“First and foremost what you should think about is what your goal is,” he states. “Are you actually relocating here and making this your permanent home? Are you thinking about buying a property as a second home that you can use right now while you’re still in the workforce or only use part of the year and you’re gonna either rent it out or let family use it? Or are you looking for a pure rental property?”

“Buyers should also consider what their lifestyle will be when they relocate, i.e. golfing, boating, tennis, regular trips to the beach, et cetera,” Winchel adds. “This will help your sales agent find the right property for you.”

With these questions answered, it is time to find a real estate agent.

“They should be full-time, have local knowledge, available to help and also have a great real estate search site,” he states.
