I'd get the home on the market in FL if you can price it to sell, then get together a short list of homes in Wilmington that you would like to buy. If you husband has a marital interest in your FL property, or if you are on title or have a marital interest in the NC property, your husband might not qualify as a first time buyer.Your lender and tax preparer or CPA would need to advise you on this. We successfully help clients who sell elsewhere and as soon as they get under contract, come visit us for the "buying weekend". We find a home they like and get it under contract with a closing date a couple days after they existing house sale date. It is very important to have your financing firmly in place. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.
I just got a job in Pensacola and live in Wilmington. We will be selling our home to relocate, it is not currently listed and is located near Hugh McCrea Park in Winter Park in the heart of Wilmington. It is a 3 bed 2 bath around 2500 sqft wth a new detached garage apt rented for $550/month. Send me an e-mail if you would like more information, I can send you some pics. Pilot77_98@hotmail.com
You certainly wouldn't want to waste the time of your Realtor....

How you can do that is put your home on the market in Fl. If you need a good agent I can reccomend one for you.
Then I can send you homes that are in your price range and wish list in a portal for your review
That way you can see what is available to you when you get an offer on your home

I would love to help you find the right home in beautiful Wilmington NC
The answer is you dive into both whole heartedly. You get the home listed at the right price and start looking at homes to buy and write offers on in the meanwhile. then tie the 2 together somehow when opportunity knocks--you find the right home.
Your home needs to be listed so well that it gives confidence to the owners of the home you want to buy. Likely you will negotiate and ratify a contract on a new home and you will include a sale of home contingency meaning the transaction is contingent on your selling your home. The Sellers here will be open to doing that if you give them fair price very near market value and can demonstrate your home is priced right to sell, is staged to sell and is presented exceptionally well online with its virtual tour, etc.
So dive in and pursue both 100% and it will work out.
