Main Street in Manchester

It’s hard to pull up your roots and relocate to another city. If you’re relocating to Manchester CT, we do our best to make it a pleasant experience. Once you begin your search, a Brooke Group real estate agent will help you find a home that perfectly fits your taste and style.

Historic Manchester

Manchester’s origins date back to 1673. That’s when English pioneers established a settlement on the Podunk Indians’ camping grounds. Several decades later, a group of Puritans relocated there also. By then, it was part of Hartford and referred to as “Five Mile Track.” After the location became a part of East Hartford, the residents renamed it Orford Parish.

By 1790 Orford Parish was a growing cluster of settlements with churches, schools, a thriving business community, and a population of 1,000. Manufactures included a glassworks, a grist mill, and other commercial ventures. One Orford Parish business produced gunpowder used in the Revolutionary War.

1823, Orford Parish won its campaign to become a separate town. It was incorporated under the name Manchester. In 1935, the city chose its motto,“City of Village Charm” from a winning contest entry. Manchester will celebrate its 200th Anniversary in 2023.

1

CONTACT A REAL ESTATE AGENT ASAP

As soon as you confirm that you’re relocating to Manchester CT, you should contact a real estate professional. We understand that relocating to another town takes a lot of energy and effort. If you’re relocating to Manchester CT because of a job transfer, you have a limited amount of time to find a new home.

2

ANSWER YOUR REALTOR’S QUESTIONS

Our agent in Manchester will ask you a long list of questions. We rely on your responses to locate a home with the style, price range, location, and other features you need. We don’t want you to spend your valuable time looking at homes you don’t want.

3

VISIT MANCHESTER

We use our resources to find homes that are compatible with your needs. The next step is up to you. An in-person visit is the best way to move your relocation process forward. We recommend that you schedule a few days in our lovely town. You’ll have time to tour local homes, eat at a local restaurant, and meet a few friendly citizens.

If your schedule won’t allow you to visit before relocating to Manchester CT, you have home-touring options. Many online home listings provide creative visuals such as professional photos, walkthrough videos, overhead drone videos, or 3-D virtual tours. Even if you can’t visit, you can still get a feel for a home, inside and out.

4

WORK WITH A PROFESSIONAL MOVER

When you hire a professional mover, it reduces your chance of relocation burnout. While your mover packs up your belongings and transports them to your new destination, you can take a stress-free break. If you’re relocating to Manchester CT for your job, your employer might pay or reimburse your costs. If your employer can’t pay your moving costs, ask your tax professional if your moving expenses are tax-deductible.

5

SETTLING INTO YOUR NEW TOWN

If you’re relocating to Manchester CT, you’ll need to establish new personal and professional relationships. Here are some of the contacts you’ll need as you settle into your new home.

These are just a few of the contacts you’ll need as you adjust to your new community. To learn more about local services, visit the city’s, “Department List” page.

    GET YOUR CURRENT HOME SOLD

    When you’re relocating to Manchester CT, of course, you prefer to get your current home on the market before you move. If possible, you want it sold. That’s not always feasible if you’re on a tight relocation schedule. Still, we work to help you accomplish this goal.
