For the past 15 years, I have had many real estate clients who arrive to live and work or retire to Lethbridge from various locations across Canada and the world. In the past, I used to provide these clients with a package in advance of their arrival to the area. This bundle was referred to as a 'relocation package'.
Stuffed into this package of info was always a map, lists of schools and recreational activities, economic projections, housing stats, and lots of other dry stuff that really was just in there to make the pack look much more extensive and helpful. The reality was though that the majority of those packages probably went unopened or only looked at for less than a brief moment.
As much as some of this information seemed useful, most of it was statsitics and stuff that the average person really doesnt' care about. Most of it was not tangible real life stuff.
Who cares who the 3rd biggest Lethbridge employer is, or who is on the City Council, or how many days below freezing there are?????
What people really want to know is stuff that matters to their real lives. Stuff that matters day to day. Stuff like:
-is there a place I can get Japanese food?
-is there a gun club?
-is there a waterpark for kids?
-where do you go to buy car insurance there?
-which shopping center has the best stores?
-which streets or areas have lots of crime?
The real valuable relocation package comes not from some branch of the government or the City of Lethbrige. It comes from living in the community, raising a family here, participating in sports and cultural events, shopping, dining out, and entertaining friends and visitors here. The real relocation package is experience and not statistics.
If you are considering moving to Lethbridge and southern Alberta, give me a call and lets talk about the real relocation package and about the things that matter to you and your family. Robert May 403-330-3039 or robertmay (at) gmail (dot) com.
