Loss on Sale Assistance

As the real estate market has declined, loss-on-sale provisions have become an important policy consideration for the first time in many years. Too many transferees now find themselves “upside down”, where their home’s selling price is less than what they originally paid for it. While Worldwide ERC data indicate that the majority of companies (60%) do not offer loss-on-sale assistance, most are acutely aware of the issue and considering their options.

Best Practices in Inventory Management

Clearly, the best inventory strategy is to keep properties from entering inventory in the first place. The better relocation policies today reflect current market realities, with aggressive home marketing assistance programs and incentives to employees to price realistically and to complete the relocation efficiently. Still, in today’s environment, it’s not surprising that some properties will end up in inventory. The best practices outlined in this paper will help to minimize both days in inventory and total program costs.

The Importance of Cultural & Language Training

Companies commonly invest $1 million or more in a typical international relocation assignment, yet about 30 percent of assignees end up returning early and an alarming 70 percent do not achieve all of the goals established for the assignment. Too often, we ascribe failed assignments to poor housing choices, unhappy spouses and children and misdirected emotions, but not to issues related to cultural differences. Careful cultural assessment and training, in fact, can mean the difference between a successful assignment and a costly, failed one.

From a transferee’s perspective, if the departure home is worth less than the mortgage balance, the “least bad” alternative is often to persuade the lender to agree to a short sale.

The Tax Man Cometh

Tax assistance is typically the third most expensive benefit behind home sale and household goods. It costs more to provide tax assistance than it does to help an employee buy a new home. In fact, it often costs more to provide tax assistance than to pay for an employee’s house hunting, temporary living and final trip expenses combined! By properly structuring relocation benefits, taking advantage of relocation-friendly tax laws and customizing tax assistance policy to the needs of transferring employees, companies can control, and potentially reduce, tax assistance costs.

Service is Back!

In an outsourced relocation program today, there is no need for a trade-off between service and cost. Balanced consideration of cost and service elements, along with careful weighting of those qualitative service elements that are most important, will help to ensure the success of the relocation program. In fact, proper consideration of service will likely reduce a company’s total relocation costs. With a better organizational fit, the relocation partner will be able to offer more targeted, cost-saving policy recommendations and will be able to execute the program far more effectively.
