I'm just starting the process of moving from Indianapolis to Cleveland. I wasn't traded per se, but my wife had an opportunity that we could not refuse, and since my job could care less where I live, it made sense to do it. Her future employer has been so kind as to give us the cash we need to relocate as well, so money really isn't the issue at hand.
That said. There's nothing easy about it, and certainly not something that we should casually dismiss because they are rich and can afford it.Finding a home takes time. Finding schools (if kids are involved) is a big issue too... and if the kids are older, I can guarantee you that they aren't too terribly receptive to moving. Even if someone else is moving the piano, there's still a ton of things/stress to be worked out. The logistics can be a nightmare... and no matter how much money you have, there's a huge time component that is even more difficult when one member of the family is on the road 2+ weeks a month (which in my case is me).
For the record, I'm not saying, dont' trade. I'm just saying that there is a human component to it, and I can empathize with that, even if I'm coveting the prospects received in the exchange. It's not easy on the person being traded. Let's recognize that for what it is and not diminish what Reed has to say.
