I currently have my house on the market. I'm probably staying in the same town just want a different place. I am also wanting to change jobs in the relatively near future.

Lately I have been networkign with friends and friends of friends and had a few people offer to pass my resume along to their managers for some really good jobs. Only problem is I'm worried if I switch jobs I wont be able to get a mortgage for at least another year if I take a new job before sellign my place and getting a new house.

The jobs I would be taking are not the same job and not the same industry. If I want to buy a place as soon as I sell do I prettty much need to stay at my current job until that is all done?

Switching jobs to a new industry is always a red flag. They'll look at other things and if you have more than the minimum down payment and exceptional credit, they might overlook it, but best to stay where you are.

If you are going from a W2 job to a new W2 job, not a big issue. if you are going from a W2 job to commission sales, that is a huge issue.
