The Lore Group has extensive experience assisting out of town clients with the process of relocating to Fort McMurray from other cities across Alberta, Canada and internationally. Moving into a new home can be challenging on its own, but when moving also involves relocating to a new city or country, the logistics can be daunting.

Moving to Fort McMurray from another city can add a layer of complexity to buying a new home: you won't be familiar with the residential communities or major amenity areas and will be unsure which areas provide optimal commuting access to your new job. If you're relocating with a family there will be new schools and family-friendly recreation facilities to find as well.

Buying real estate can be tricky when you're relocating: showings must be coordinated within a short time frame while you're visiting and much of the offer process will likely be done via phone or email. Because of this long distance element, you want to ensure you work with a professional Fort McMurray real estate group you trust: The Lore Group will always look out for your best interests and stay in constant communication with you throughout the home buying process.

We always recommend taking the time to visit Fort McMurray if at all possible while looking for a new home. Not only will you be more confident in your real estate purchase if you have the opportunity to view the home yourself, but visiting will also provide you with an opportunity to get to know the Fort McMurray community better. Moving to Fort McMurray will be a much less stressful experience if you're already familiar with the community.

Most often clients are relocating to Fort McMurray because of job opportunities within the Athabasca Oil Sands. Fort McMurray is known throughout Canada as the primary home for employees in all sectors of the oil and gas industry.

Fort McMurray is the largest urban community within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo servicing the Athabasca oil sands region.
