We will be listing our house soon and plan to move out of state. The whole idea of trying to time finding another house to buy when this house sells makes my head hurt. What we had originally planned to do was, once our house went under contract, we would go to the new state and look at the houses that met our criteria and buy one, set the closing to closely follow the closing of the house we were selling (and cross our fingers that there aren't any hangups with the two closings). Is that how most people do it?
So now I'm wondering if it's better to find a house to rent first. It would put us in a situation where we wouldn't have to worry about selling anything and could buy when we found the perfect house. Huge downside is moving twice, but at least the second move wouldn't be out of state.
So I'd love to hear from anyone who has moved to another state. How did you do it, and would you do anything differently if you had to do it over?
