Many believe “you’ll know it when you see it” when choosing where to live. Finding your place takes time. PorchLight Area Tours highlight the city, the sites, the sounds in ways that match diverse needs and wants. It may be just the incentive that gets your offer accepted.

An area tour is provided for many reasons. It introduces someone to an area, and is focused on what is important to the candidate or transferee. Relocation candidates, new hires and transferring employees may need help learning the areas with the top rated schools, determining if it’s more affordable to rent or purchase, understanding if the city offers the desired lifestyle or just trying to understand where to focus looking for a home – especially important for large markets or areas where a transferee covers a large territory and has many options on where to live. All area tours will include viewing transportation and/or traffic patterns as well as a few housing options helping the customer understand housing availability and costs associated.
