Although relocating to Peru is exciting, it can also be very stressful and overwhelming with so many things to do and think about. Even trying to accomplish simple things when you first arrive in Peru can be very difficult and frustrating, even if you are proficient in Spanish. This is why you should consider hiring the services of a real estate relocation agent when you move to Peru.
Many people use the services of a relocation agent before they move to Peru in order to assist them in finding a property to rent or buy, including negotiating sales and rental contracts and hiring a removal or shipping company.
Assistance from a relocation service can be just for the first few days after your move to Peru, or provide ongoing guidance to help you find good schools for your children, open a bank account and even apply for residence in Peru.
You can also call upon your relocation agent to obtain internet service, have a telephone line and cable TV installed or make sure other household utilities are connected. Your relocation agent will have local contact information for good lawyers, doctors and any other professionals you may need.
It is always a good idea to make sure you become acquainted with the neighborhood you have moved in to and so you should ask your relocation agent to give you a tour to point out places of interest, main attractions and to help you get a feel of your new environment.
If you need to learn to speak Spanish, your relocation agent will be able to help and advise you of the different schools or classes available in the area.
You will most likely find the driving style in Peru is different from what you are accustomed to and you will need some guidance on how to negotiate the local traffic and obtain a local driving license.
Employing the services of a relocation agent in Peru may not be an expense you have factored in to your budget, but in the long term, having someone from the local area to help you settle in will save an immense amount of time and money.
