Well, it's officially happening! We've talked to a realtor about our house here in NOVA, and my current employer has agreed to work with me remotely. We're probably looking at listing our home here in the next 3 weeks or so, and our realtor doesn't think we'll have to wait long for a reasonable offer due to the low inventory, so we could be in Va Beach by July/August.

We plan to rent first so we can get a good feel for exactly where we want to be within Virginia Beach. Any input on working with a realtor for finding a rental, or should I just keep checking out properties on Zillow, Trulia, etc., as I have been? The problem will be finding time to view any properties...we'll be down to visit in a couple weeks, but I'm not sure we should bother looking at places until it's closer to time to move. It's been quite a few years since we've rented, and back then, it was apartment complexes, which is different from trying to find a SFH rental.

Congratulations on your move. Are you working with Redfin up there? I heard they are quite popular up there. They are just opening offices in Hampton Roads. I agree on renting for a year to get a feel for the area. If you are looking for a sfh rental you might check with property management companies. While traffic is a lot less than Nova I would probably find something close to work. If you have further questions just ask.

I have a realtor I know personally who lives in my HOA, so no need to involve Redfin (and pay their extra fees). I'll be working from home, so wherever I live will be where I work, so commute is not an issue

Nice. Well, there are plenty of neighborhoods around to choose from. Do you have any idea what part of the city you are looking for? You want to live central or more out in the burbs? Want to be close to retail? What's your budget? I'm not a realtor and don't really know the price of rentals persay but just trying to help you out.
