Best option is to have your husband go ahead of you, rent a room through a house or room-sharing website, and search for and land a job first. Might need to be with a temp agency at first. Then after that secure a place to rent and you and your child move out.

Also, have a lot of money saved up for this endeavor.
A. Lot. Of. Money.
That depends who youíre talking to. I donít need a ďjob lined upĒ for anyone to rent to me, my bank account balance is more than sufficient with my credit too. We canít assume OP is any different. Show an apartment or landlord a six figure bank account and they donít care where you work.

When was the last time you rented in Nashville?

Is Nashville a foreign country?! Lol. Every single apartment works the same way. If you have cash, theyíll be happy to have you there. Some places ask that you put down more money, but they donít care if you have a job whatsoever. You forget many people donít need jobs, either. My investment income per month is twice what most people make from any job, trust me they wouldnít care where the money comes from lol

I would never move a family without having a job secured. That is just not wise.

People always say, "Don't move without a job!" but employers only consider local candidates for most positions. I don't think anyone is going to hire a technician 2000 miles away.

Why are you moving, if he has no job at the destination? What's the draw? And for only a year? It could take him 6 months to find a job. Then he'd have to quit after just 6 months on the job? Why the short timeline?

This. For example, LL's rent to retirees all the time. And some people retire at 45 or 50. They have no trouble renting.

But the OP says, they only have 6 months' worth of cash, and that they need most of it, to buy a new place, after their Nashville stay. So they actually have less leeway than that 6 months'-worth would indicate.

OP, it sounds like you two haven't figured out all the logistics yet.

Even most retirees probably have some regular income; pension, SS, annuity, etc.

Bull****. People hire out of state candidates. I've lived in three different states in 15 years.

Bull****. See the above. Not once have I met a landlord who will rent to someone without proof of income and proof of employment.

There are landlords who will rent without proof of income, but you have to have a better story than, "We're moving to Nashville and hope things work out."
