Athlete Relocation Experts

25 April, 2017

Athlete relocation experts are not  sports agents, nor are they financial advisors or legal advisors. All of those fields require specialization, and it is best to turn to those professionals for that expertise. Athlete relocation experts work with the athlete AND his/her team of existing advisors, coordinating efforts and making sure the athlete receives the best professional process possible.  This is an important distinction and one worth noting. Our primary purpose is to make your re [...]

Relocation Peace of Mind

10 January, 2017

Relocation peace of mind sounds a bit like an oxymoron, doesn’t it?  No doubt most of you are shaking your heads and silently saying “there is no peace of mind when facing a relocation.  There is only psychological stress of relocation.”  Let’s face it, relocation is stressful, and for professional athletes, that relocation is often required within twenty-four or forty-eight hours, and if that isn’t stressful then what is, right? So many professional athletes, entertainers, and p [...]

Sports Relocation is So Much More

03 November, 2016

There seems to be a false impression of what a sports relocation company does.  In talking to many professional athletes, the image they think of  is one of real estate sales and auto transports, but in truth that barely scratches the surface of what we do here at Sports Relocation, Inc. Let’s consider the case of Wayne Ellington, shooting guard for the Miami Heat. Wayne called us and wanted to secure seats to the Floyd Mayweather fight last year.  He also wanted to charter a priv [...]

Athlete Relocation Compensation

11 October, 2016

  We were recently asked this question about athlete relocation compensation and decided it was a good one to cover on our blog. The question was: if an athlete is traded to another team, is he compensated for moving costs and for the possible loss on a home sale or lease? It’s a good question and it’s a situation which comes up quite often.  Oftentimes, when trades occur, an athlete is required to pick up and leave his current home immediately. This, as you might suspect, can ca [...]

October Athlete Relocation News

04 October, 2016

October may well be the most active month for athlete relocation news.  The NFL season is into Week #5.  The NBA and NHL have both just begun their seasons.  MLB is now entering the playoff portion of their season.  And all of this means, not only entertainment for hundreds of thousands of sports fans, but also a continual inflow and outflow of athletes involving athlete relocations. Yes, professional athletes make a ton of money, but they also live a rather tenuous life, never really kno [...]

Explaining Free Agency

23 August, 2016

If you are a sports fan, or a casual observer of sports, or just hear about them from time to time, you have no doubt heard of free agency.  But what, exactly, does that term, free agency, mean? There are basically three classifications of free agency in professional sports. An unrestricted free agent is a player without a team.  They were either released from a team, or their contract expired, or they were not drafted in the league’s draft of amateur players.  These free agents are f [...]

Athlete Relocation Hidden Costs

16 August, 2016

There are some costs to athlete relocation that are obvious: the auto transports, the moving of household goods, and so on.  But there are also some athlete relocation hidden costs that may not be so obvious.  Let’s take the recent move of the St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles as a perfect example of these hidden costs. Rams employees, while earning a living in St. Louis, paid a state income tax of six percent and a city income tax of one percent.  However, for those players and employees ea [...]

MLB Trade Deadline Rapidly Approaching

26 July, 2016

As of the writing of this article, a full fifteen Major League baseball teams have a realistic shot at the four available wild card spots with the MLB trade deadline rapidly approaching. Fifteen teams! Fifteen teams, and each one must decide whether to pull the trigger on a trade between now and August 1st, five days away. The decisions made in the next five days will greatly affect not only the outcome of this season but also seasons to come, so these are not decisions taken lightly.  [...]

The Craziest Four Days in Professional Sports

19 July, 2016

Do you know what the craziest four days in professional sports are?  They are coming soon….July 27th through August 1st, which means we are eight days from hectic times in the professional sports world. So, what’s happening to lead us to make that statement? Starting on July 27th, thirty-two NFL teams will begin pre-season training camp in preparation for the upcoming 2016 NFL Season, and that means over three-thousand professional football players will begin the annual athlete reloca [...]
