OK, so you’ve found the home of your dreams on Trulia or you’ve successfully “Made Someone Move“. What comes next?


TotalMove might just be what you’re looking for. They aim to help homeowners prepare for the huge transition that moving entails.

At it’s core, TotalMove is a mashup of a number of different web properties; listings from oodle, agents from Homegain, neighborhood profiles from Turnhere, etc.

The site’s goal is to give consumers the same level of service corporate executives enjoy through professional relocation services. They provide a step-by-step approach to deal with all the small headaches that come with buying a new home; finding an agent to represent you, getting financing, arranging for movers, transferring utilities, that sort of thing.

But more than just giving consumers timely information and reams of checklists, TotalMove also provides free personal assistance from a call center staffed with full-time real estate coordinators. They promise their coordinators will act as personal moving concierges who can help guide you along at any stage of the process.

It’s this kind of melding of online/offline services that I believe consumers are looking for. People want information and data – but I think many still would like someone to hold their hand when it comes down to getting it done.

TotalMove’s revenue model is advertising based, and they also earn referrals from each of the vendors. This allows them to provide this service gratis to folks like you and me.

They also will private label the service for others, which make it a option for brokers looking to offer this service to all their clients.
