If a sudden job transfer is in your future, a little pre-planning can help make your relocation move less stressful. Because after the excitement of moving to a new city begins to fade, panic often replaces the initial exhilaration, especially when the realization hits that you might not know anything about buying a home in a new area.
Buying a home in an unfamiliar area carries risks, and it can be scary. Real estate laws vary from state to state. Local custom can differ from one county to another. You don't want to make a home buying mistake or buy in the wrong neighborhood. Plus, if you have a home to sell in order to buy a home, you want the timing to be perfect. The last thing you want to have happen is to pull up to your new home with the moving truck and you can't move in because of some silly snafu. So how can you protect yourself?
