i probobly wont have an issue with a job because i will search when i come visit and look for a house.
my husband will stay home with the family so i can do this.
for a mortage, we need job verification from florida. he will apply online but what are his chances of getting a job without being there for an interview? it is all going to happen so fast once we sell.
has anyone that relocated and purchased a home had this issue?

Never heard of this before, but with the way banks are going, I'm not surprised...

Chances of getting a job without a face to face interview...wow...never heard of that one either....

Sorry, probably zero. With all the competition for jobs, there can be two to three face-to-face interviews before a company decides. Plan on being here for interviews. Good luck!

I would start preparing now. Develop a list of all the companies in the area where you may apply. See if you can get the applications on-line or ahead of time. Get them filled out (except for the dates), and when you are ready drop them by, make face to face appointment where you can, check them off the list, and make as many appointments (when the time comes that you can). Don't expect anything, and add to you back-up plan list with as many application / appointments as you can. Be organized so you can hit as many places effectively and efficiently as you can. Don't be down, be positive (no one wants to hire someone that is down, no matter what the circumstances). Don't oversell, but make sure they understand that you are focused on bringing in new clients and building that base - or what ever - so they know you are focused on being an income generator. These are tough times, but the basics don't change, if you can generate revenue / income / clients you will get the job. You need to let them know that you understand that, and have a plan to do it. Getting work in tough times is tough, but for those that know how to succeed, those people are invaluable. You need to make them feel they can't afford to let you get out the door without a job offer from them in your hand. Success doesn't come to those who wait - it really only comes to the people who know what they want, and go after it. Also, don't send signals that you don't want something that you really do want. I see people do that to me all the time, break down the barriers to achieve what you want, don't build them and then wait. That will just cause confusion, and it will stop them dead in their tracks. If you want something, tell them what you want . . . and work through the rest of the requirements.

From what you told me, I think you will do fine. It is a tough market. If your expectations properly prepare you, then you might be pleasantly surprised. But again, it is a tough market. I was offering general advice, that I hope will help a lot of people here that are looking for a job.

My fingers are crossed (+ = left hand + = right hand) for you. From what I've been told this financial mess should not effect you or others (your potential buyers) from getting a mortgage. So long as you/they met the standards that were set a couple weeks ago. - That's a good thing! Good Luck - let me know if things turn positive. . .

Why buy now? There are plenty of rentals on the market. Why buy in area A and find out a job offer is for area B 60 miles away. Are you willing to commute?

no probobly not... we will hope for around the area 30-40 min commute will be ok.
ladywithafan.... yes i hope to have 20-30k in the bank by my plan... this is a huge thing for us.. to have a savings... something we will never beable to do here. i would also love to pay off my car but it doesnt look like that will happen . i had a huge master plan.. its changed by 45k.so ive also lowered my house standards. i have goals and am hopeing i can stick to them.. ive got so much in my head about this whole relocating thing that it drives me crazy. constantly writing down figures. trying to figure out what my weekly budget might be compared to here. i think it will work for us. just scary about the job thing.. im working on that too. but unfortunately i cant do anything until i have a contract on my house. then it will be a mad rush.
i have the renting thing in my head too. it might work out better that way in the long run.
