The complication is figuring out what comes first - selling the house or me finding a different job. We would just barely scrap by on my husband's income alone while still owning our current house, so we would have to move once I quite my job.

Should we:
1. Put the house on the market now. If it sells before I find a job, I'll put my notice in at work, and we will move and rent or live with family until I find employment
2. Wait until I have a job secured and hope that the house sells before I have to start my new job, and try to coordinate buying our next house at same time.
I hope that I can help you out with information. Where are you moving to? I know that American Airline was looking for people to work from home.

As far as puting your home up for sell is a good thing to do, you can continue to look for work and try to move forward. Please let me know where you are moving to and I maybe able to help you out. Looking forward to helping you.

No plan is bullet-proof, but put the house up for sale, ASAP, no matter what. Modify your plans as events unfold. Don't abandon a plan on expectations, alone. Wait for stuff to happen that requires you to modify your plans. Innovate, be brave and confident.

I have faced the same situation you do a number of times, and things always worked out if we helped them along.
