I would be happy to sit down with you and your husband and talk about moving. There are many things you can do now. I have found that a checklist is the best way to do that, since there are too many things to remember. Utilities? Pets? Subscriptions? Furniture? Bank accounts? It can be overwhelming.
Fortunately (I think), I have moved 15 times while in the military and am getting pretty good at it! I have been in Honolulu for 6 years now, the longest I have lived anywhere in 25 years.
On the financial side, we can talk about how to prepare your credit report to look its best. You can even contact lenders and Realtors in California now to get a feel for someone you feel comfortable with and will be responsive to your questions. I have a simple test to help find good agents where you are going.
