For those who have relocated, did you find a job, sell your house, then buy?

If you went down without employment, how long to find?

Is there any right combination?

We would probably find a job for hubby first, he would rent and look for homes while I would be here selling and getting things in order.

We bought our house in NC first (love at first sight, and they had another offer), sold ours, and my husband is now lining up interviews. Yes, we did everything backwards.

We're very fortunant to have received a relocation package from DH's company to Charlotte. We were out the first weekend of May and loved the Union County area. We will be heading out again the 2nd week of July to look around again. Jerseymom where is your family headed to make home in NC?

We bought our house in NC first. Then we came home and put ours on the market,now we're waiting to close on it. My wife put in an application at one of the hospitals,got a call went back down for an interview, and was offered the job a week later. Now we'll be going down earlier then expected, we'll have to rent until our house is ready, hopefully by Oct. or Nov.

How in the world can people afford to do this? It completely blows my mind. However if we could do that we would, but there is no way we could buy a house with the money we have saved, and move and worry about having a mortgage payment without having a job lined up. Speaking of which how do you get a mortgage without a job?

We did the same thing.

1. Bought the house

2. Put house in MA on market. ( Still trying to sell. )

3. Will move in to new house on 7/21 . ( Even if house in MA is unsold. )

4. Hopefully will find employment shortly thereafter.


Len in MA.

Many people are coming from places with inflated house values and easily have well over $100,000 in cash to live off of until they find new jobs.

That is correct, without that bankroll it wouldn't be possible. You would need a job first and some type of money to move.
