Moving Across Country
Buying a home and selling one at the same time and moving is not an easy thing to do. And planning to move across country is an adventure. Make sure you do your research before selling and buying. My advice for selling your home is to find an experienced real estate agent and discuss what you can sell your home for and if you should make any home improvements before selling. When moving across country to another state, find a realtor from the area you choose to relocate to and visit the area and look at a few houses, pre plan a vacation for a week if possible. And make sure you research moving companies, making sure to check out reviews, seeing if they are mdot certified and ask if they are a direct moving company or a third party (meaning they work with the near by movers and help facilitate your furniture being picked up and delivered.) I had to wait three weeks for the movers to deliver my belongings.
Always be prepared to wait a while and stock up on paper plates, plastic cups and air mattress to sleep on until you get your stuff. Try to keep the sale of your home close to your closing date for buying your home, in my case I did this because the people who bought my home gave me thirty days rent free to move out.
If you can, try to find help if you can and rent a UHAUL to pack your stuff into, saves so much money and you have your items with you and do not have to wait to unpack. It can be stressful to move and relocate but if you can pre plan in advance, it will take so much stress off of your move.
