That depends on several factors.
1. What is your tolerance for having two mortgages or for owning two houses at the same time?
2. How important is it to you to be settled when you move here? Since you do have that option.
3. What is it like in your home market? Do you feel you can make the house there a good option for buyers and sell it within a short period of time?
I suggest you discuss this with the agent who can help you here and with the agent you are working with in California to get their insights after having a conversation with more specific information.
I would be glad to discuss this further with you if want to give me a call.
