So I will have a place to move to once I arrive in Ogden. That was my best-case scenario for someone who has two big dogs! I did find that there are extended-stay residences and apartments that allow pets, but fortunately I will not have to rent first -- especially because I was really not digging the idea of having my dogs stay inside ALL DAY, surely that would cause issues. Anyway, for anyone buying, be aware that things are moving REALLY quickly -- having a house go under contract in ONE DAY is not unusual. So don't bother gathering a list of homes you want to check out more than a couple days ahead of time; chances are they may already have offers by that time. And, some homes list for more than what they will appraise at. So be prepared to have to play the multiple-offer game, and if you have cash to make up the difference between appraisal price and asking price (in case you have to bid against others - who may bid high, but if they have to get a mortgage, the house had better appraise at offer price), you will be better positioned.
Congrats on the job and on finding a place to live. I hope you and your four-legged friends will be really happy here in Utah!
