@csteen85:  I don’t have any experience with this but I’m sure other bees do. Giving this a bump!

I would get a job elsewhere first, even if it is just one of you. You can always rent for a few months while you are looking for a house there if you don’t find one right away.

Hi there!

Darling Husband and I are from the NYC/Westchester area and are going through the same thing. We are looking to relocate within the next year and are going to start seriously looking this spring.

I am having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that we will be farther from our parents/aunts/uncles, etc., but keep reminding myself that it is worth it for a better life for us and our future children.

Our situation is a bit different on the job front as my husband telecommutes and can provide for us on his salary while I look for a job in our new location. Just be aware of what the unemployment rate is like wherever you choose to settle because that will almost certainly effect how long it will take you to find a job.

Personally I would not feel comfortable moving until at least one of us found steady employment in our future neighborhood. If you haven’t completely decided on a location yet take some time (at least 2 weeks) visiting the area. Google searches and sites like bestplaces.net have helped me learn about various neighborhoods and what location might be a good fit for us.

I hope this is helpful… This is already long enough so feel free to message me if you have more specific questions on relocating. It is SUCH a difficult decision and one my husband and I had to discuss for quite a while before I felt confident enough to make the leap.

Darling Husband and I got married while we were living in Dallas and re-located to Atlanta earlier this year.

Luckily, DH’s job allows him to be based out of any major US city so there was nothing to worry about there.  I job searched from Dallas as we didn’t want to move until I had secured a new job in Atlanta.  I was able to do phone interviews up until the final round so I only had to fly out for 1 in-person interview.

In terms of somewhere to live, it is so easy to narrow down apartments based on reviews, pictures, and prices online.  So narrow it down to a handful and then make one trip to look at all of them, pick one, and sign a lease.

Has your Fiance looked into whether or not the states you would like to move to have certification reciprocity? I’m a teacher & I’m planning to move from Arizona to Idaho and I know all I need to do is take the Idaho teaching exams once I’m there and have a job and my teaching certification transfers. Transfering his certification from one state to another shouldn’t be difficult (unless you are moving to California) and since he’s certified in Special Ed he should have a few more job opportunities open to him. Fiance and I are moving to Idaho after I finish this current school year, but he already has an established position there, so our situation is a little different than yours. We are moving to a really small town so it will probably be awhile before a teaching position opens up for which I am qualified, but I plan to get any job that pays the bills until then. I think its worth relocating for a better quality of life, even if it means struggling for a bit. Good luck with everything!
