Home Finding

Temporary Housing

Many assignees need temporary living arrangements before settling into their new home abroad. IOR works with our clients’ preferred suppliers of temporary housing.  When clients do not have an established relationship with a housing provider, we will make recommendations of high-quality temporary housing in the home country and host country.

Home Finding

Looking for a new home is usually an exciting and emotional time for expatriates. IOR’s DS Consultants work to ensure that families can focus on their expatriate housing needs rather than on the logistical and legal processes that are unique to the new destination. Our consultants know that a big part of their job is to balance the needs of the expatriates with the housing guidelines and budget provided by their company. With this information in mind, consultants develop a home-search agenda offering a variety of housing options that address company and assignee requirements. 

Once a property is selected the Destination Services Consultant works with the family on behalf of the client to negotiate the lease.  The next steps are to assist the family in creating a property inventory, set up utilities and source furniture and appliances as needed. IOR’s Destination Services Consultants are in touch with the assignee and family throughout the entire process.
