I'm planning to relocate to CA. There is a job waiting for me, and I'll want tp buy a house there. How can I get a mortgage? Would I have to wait until a new credit history has been established?

It will depend on a number of things. What visa will you be on, how much cash to you have to put down and what is your credit like in Canada?

We moved here from Canada 3 years ago and have not bought a house yet. We always owned in Canada but found it was cheaper to rent when we came. Also we do not have verifiable income since we are self-employed. We did get credit cards, etc. right away based on our credit in Canada.
