Relocating to San Antonio

Relocating to San Antonio

Do you find yourself looking for New Braunfels custom builders because you’re relocating to the San Antonio area this holiday season? Relocating to a new city can be a fun chapter and an exciting change in your life. Everything is new when you are in a new city and it is fun to find your new “favorites” in town. However, moving somewhere new can also bring up many challenges you’ll have to face. Most commonly, a place of employment is a huge stressor if you don’t already have employment lined up for you once you move. Weston Dean Custom Homes shares some tips to help you find your ideal place of employment once you make your move.

First, before you start working it is a good idea to get to know your surroundings. Find out where to buy your groceries, spots of interest and every day places you’re used to from back home that you can have in your new location like gyms, malls, a local pharmacy and so on.

Once you have a decent hold on your new location, get salary surveys so you know where to begin your search. It is important to figure out what your skills and experience can command compensation in. You can easily access graphs that compare what a job title pays in your new location at careeronestop.org. Then, hone that data in sites like salary.com, payscale.com, glassdoor.com and other similar websites.

Before you redo your resume, check sites like Monster, CareerBuilder and Linkedin’s main jobs menu and check the results of full text job descriptions so that you can carefully identify the sought-after skills and achievements that can go into your resume.

Next, find job fairs in your area through a Google search. This will be a helpful avenue to get the ball rolling since these companies are looking to hire- and you’re already in need of a job.

Lastly, be sure to network in your new community and see if you can get job connections through people you know or get to know. You can even use LinkedIn as a tool to get connections for jobs you’re interested in.

Before you know it, you’ll have a wonderful new home and new career to begin the next chapter of your life in. Let Weston Dean Custom Homes play a part in making that dream, a reality for you.

Millennials buying homes in the suburbs

Millennials moving to the suburbs

Millennials moving to the suburbs

If you are currently looking for a New Braunfels custom builder to build your new home, you most likely are one of many currently looking for a new home for the New Year. What you may or may not have noticed is that if you are looking in the suburbs, you are most likely also looking with a lot of millennials. Believe it or not, the National Association of Realtors’ Home Buyer and Seller Generation Trends report recently released an article that said people who are 35 years of age and younger make up the largest group of homebuyers in the market today, and 67% of those buyers are first-time homebuyers. Weston Dean Custom Home breaks down the millennial trend this buying season.

What is even more interesting is that while people might think that millennials have no interest in homeownership and have no interest in buying a home in the suburbs. However, this is not the case. Millennials continue to make up the largest share of homebuyers in annual surveys conducted by the National Association of Realtors and the past few years have been no different.

As millennials age, they have become more traditional in their buying habits. This means, you can find them choosing homes in the suburbs rather than city living like many might think. Zillow recently published a study that showed what millenials are looking for in homes. What they found is they aren’t as interested in having the largest home on the block, however they want to have a nice home, in a nice area around good schools that is a functional home for their future or growing family. This includes living primarily in suburbs around the nation.

So whether you are a millennial looking for a home or you are a buyer looking amongst them, Weston Dean Custom Homes helps fit the right type of home for the buyer, not matter what stage of life you happen to be in.
