I'm almost thinking it would be easier to just up and move and then job hunt! Of course, I have good experience, references, MBA, CPA to go on- and I also have the potential to work in a small niche industry that pays well and very few people nationwide know how to do should it take some time to find the perfect accounting/management job.

Of course, I could also accept a job, move, and then sell the house but paying rent and a mortgage makes me cranky. Right now my area is a sellers market-homes are selling and fast-but I am not planning my move until summer 2020. Lots can change!

I am open to both private and state employment, there are benefits to both, but I know the time line for state hiring is weird.

Anyone care to share their experiences?
I did all of the above a few years ago. I arranged a transfer to my then-employer's Indianapolis office on a part-time, temporary basis, bought a house in Indy, and sold the one in Denver, in that order, in the space of about four months. It was one of the most stressful things I ever went through.

If you have the resources to accept a job, move, then sell your house, why not? If you're in a seller's market, you won't be paying both a mortgage and rent for very long.

If houses are moving very quickly, selling after the movie shouldn't be a big issue. You might be paying for both places for a couple of months or so.

As long as you have 15,000 in savings hit the rd. It can be done with less, but 15 should be alright.
