It took nearly three years, but the Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) rule has been finalized by the Federal Deposit Corporation, which should translate into a win-win for homeowners who are relocating.
The new rule includes a broad definition of QRM and aligns with the Qualified Mortgage (QM) standard implemented earlier in 2014. The biggest sticking point in the passage of the QRM was the high down-payment requirements that previously proposed QRM rules imposed. Read More
Over the past decade corporate relocation policies have become increasingly sophisticated, balancing the needs of the company with those of the relocating employee. As the global economy struggled, companies formulated relocation policies that empowered them to realize their talent management objectives while managing costs and minimizing the stress and inconvenience for relocating employees.
Today we look at the recently released 2014 Worldwide ERC® (Employee Relocation Council) survey, which reported that U.S. companies experienced a 10 percent increase in domestic employee transfer volume in 2013 over 2012, and employee reluctance to relocate dropped a significant 16 percent from the previous year’s survey.

As a global relocation company, TRC Global Mobility has discovered some of the perks our clients offer their employees. Today, we share some of the best we’ve come across.
Full-service relocation: While many companies have been attracted to the simple administration of lump-sum payments, these programs do tend to offload a lot of responsibility onto the relocating employee, which can increase distraction and slow the relocation. Recognizing this, many companies continue to offer more comprehensive Buyer Value Option or Guaranteed Buyout services. These more complete home-selling programs can be augmented with services that meet the employee’s unique needs, such as pet transportation, and make the moving experience less stressful. Read More
To remain competitive and gain an edge, more and more companies are pursing the best and brightest talent around the world. While any move is stressful, an international assignment can be exponentially tougher. Choosing an expert international relocation company can reduce stress, increase satisfaction and reduce the risk of miscommunication and failed assignments. Read More
You’re relocating and have a few days to find your dream house – or at least a house you can call home. New homes sparkle, but older homes have character. Plus, you’ve been watching DIY shows on TV that have convinced you to give one a try.
Before you sign on the dotted line, there are some things everyone should consider when buying an older home.
Lead paint: If the home was built before 1978, the year lead paint was banned, it should be tested by a certified lead inspector. Lead dust is released when you sand or scrape old paint. Read More
Let’s face it: Relocating consistently ranks as one of life’s most stressful experiences. But in our global economy, relocating employees seamlessly is more important now than ever before.
10 questions to ask a relocation company:
1. Talent mobility – a phrase that has quickly become part of our daily business jargon – is the key to keeping the best and brightest committed to a corporation. TRC Global Mobility defines talent mobility as the movement of employees to where they are needed most, sometimes across the world, sometimes right next door. Will your prospective relocation company strategize with you on how best to use talent mobility to help your company achieve its broader strategic objectives?
