Is Your Transferee Still Underwater?

A month ago, we released an EBook all about Generation X. While we discussed several of the traits and values of this generation, we also covered some of the specific challenges Gen X may have when it comes to relocation. One of the points that stuck out most to me was the fact that Gen X took the brunt of the economic downturn on the chin and, today, they are still working to stand back up. Most of Gen X angst has to do with the housing market so, today, I wanted to share some information about what to do if your Gen X transferee is still underwater on their home.   

Six Important Practices for Inpat Relocations

In case you missed it, last week the Wall Street Journal ran an article titled, “Companies Tiptoe Back Towards Made in the U.S.A,” that discussed how some companies are reconsidering the U.S. as a manufacturing hub for their products.

2014 Worldwide ERC Transfer Volume and Cost Survey

Every year, as you know, we like to take a look at the Worldwide ERC Transfer Volume and Cost Survey to identify relocation industry trends. We always write about some of the important highlights and, this year, we are excited because the numbers are optimistic.  We are also optimistic here at XONEX – we are excited for 2015 – and we feel that these trends are consistent with what we have been seeing here. Even though the survey collects data that is a year old (despite being a forecast) – this year’s data is from 2013 – I think it’s still relevant and interesting. Also, now that we are in 2015, we can see how close the survey actually was to reality (feel free to weigh in on the comments section.   Further, survey respondents include a broad range of respondents representing approximately 23 different industries including retail, manufacturing, insurance and more.

Is it all Doom and Gloom for the 2015 Housing Market?

Last week, we read (and shared) and article by Chicago Agent Magazine titled, “3 Important Trends to follow for the 2015 Housing Market.” I think the article raised some good points – namely, that the rise in home prices will slow down a bit and the rental market will continue to flourish. But, after reading this article, you may find yourself a bit depressed.
