Moving to Oregon, rent or buy, selling house

Asked by janet canning, Portland, OR Tue Feb 25, 2014

We are in the process of finishing up our fixer, as far as we can fix it, and trying to sell in California. We want to move to Portland, OR. Our hope is to buy in Oregon, after we sell in Cali, but need to reestablish ourselves. I hope to have employment as an anchor job per se, but wondered about getting another load so quick after we sell. Any advice? We both have good credit scores, but this would be my first time buying, his second.

It sounds like you would not be relocating "employed" but rather having to find new jobs once you get here?

If that's the case, once employed here, as long as credit/income etc is all good, you should be able to finance within a few short months at the most (if your new jobs are in the same field, otherwise longer job history would be required).

Are you already working with a Realtor in Cali?
