January 11, 2017 – Anthony Powell, Vice President of Operations, AAFMAA Mortgage Services, announces Relocation Services package for military families. When thinking about relocating to North Carolina, Virginia, or Florida what are the important factors and which data can confirm the perfect home purchase? Visit aafmaa.com/relocation to access resources to help answer such questions.
To start with, location is the most important factor. But what does that mean? Location means schools. Which schools have the best K-12 scores? When Anthony Powell first moved to North Carolina, this data wasn’t available and the relocating buyer, like May at this time, would ask a Realtor.
Now, that data is available online through trusted and licensed professionals like those that make up the AAFMAA Mortgage Services team. Working with like-minded Realtors in local markets, AAFMAA Mortgage Services helps military families determine which schools (and other factors) are the best.

Location also means knowing where home prices are rising and/or where land is plentiful and will remain that way. Where are the hot-spots for shopping, sampling great specialty shops, and having a great meal? And of course, crime statistics. Many Realtors will simply talk in generalities. However, it is best to get actual test scores, and specific housing data through trusted professionals who are state-licensed.
Find the best North Carolina, Florida, or Virginia Realtor and the best mortgage expert by visiting AAFMAA Mortgage Services’ new relocation site at aafmaa.com/relocation. Don’t be fooled by relocation services that discount the realty fee and give the consumer a small percentage back, or don’t even inform the consumer this is happening.
“Many military families will benefit from our relationships with Furnitureland South, Mayflower and United Van Lines, and others. These trusted brands deliver value to military families seeking to relocate,” states Anthony Powell.
Furthermore, Jeff Harris, President of Furnitureland South states, “Our relationship with the military and their families dates back many generations. We are here to support the military during the home purchase process and consider it an honor and privilege that AAFMAA Mortgage Services has selected FLS as their premier home-furniture company.”
There is a lot to think about when purchasing a home — location, location, location, price, accessibility, clean air and water, crime, investor concentration (condos), fixed versus adjustable rate financing. Hire a state-licensed and qualified mortgage loan officer to handle these important issues. Unlicensed loan officers fulfill virtually no requirements. With so much uncertainty, military families need to protect the single biggest investment usually made — hire a state-licensed mortgage loan officer.
