If you are relocating and not familiar with the area, you will need to make sure your commute will be acceptable. Although thousands do the drive into Downtown, Midtown, or Buckhead every day, that may not be the most desireable.
When relocating to a new area and purchasing a home as a Primary Residence, there are several things to be aware of. All of the agencies (i.e. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD) have minimum requirements for time on the job and starting a new job prior to your closing.
For someone who is salaried or hourly, you generally must be employed at least 30 days with the current or new employer. This is due to the fact that a pay stub reflecting at least 30 days of YTD income is going to be required prior to closing.
If you are paid by anything other than a W-2 (i.e. a 1099, self-employed, etc), then you must have 24 months of receipt of that type of income. Some exceptions are possible if your current employer switched your compensation from W-2 to 1099 or commission.
Closing on a mortgage prior to starting a new job with a new company is only considered on a case by case basis for certain fields. Generally, a non-revocable employer agreement confirming your new salary, position, and start date will be required.
For anyone who will be transferring with your current employer, you will need a transfer letter. The letter will need to state the following: start date, position/job title, salary.
