Relocation Expenses

Moving expenses are substantial. Who pays for them is negotiable. Well-financed companies tend to be reasonably generous, and the larger the company, the more standardized the policy is likely to be. Moving expenses include travel and lodging costs for house-hunting trips, moving costs, temporary housing costs, a potential loss on
selling your house, purchasing a new home (especially if you’re moving to a location with substantially higher housing costs), an allowance for getting settled, a higher cost-of-living subsidy, a bridge loan if your house doesn’t sell, and outplacement and job assistance for a spouse. Have a reasonable and documented estimate of these
expenses when you negotiate them. Large companies requiring key people to move frequently are much more knowledgeable about these issues than smaller companies.
