  • Find a job first, then find a place to rent. That's what we did when we moved 1,300 miles. It was a big ordeal, but totally worth it.

  • Why are you moving? If you have no job in another city you shouldn't move.
    The job comes first then worry about the rest

  • You need to find the job first before trying to move. You also need to keep in mind that the bigger the city the higher the cost of living. so it may not be the best choice. Why not drive a little in your area for a job. It just sounds so irresponsible to move when you don't have work.
    I know it may not be glamourous but even fast food is highing. Its not much but it is a pay check.

  • Contact a realator. If you want the suburbs, you can research school districts and that should give you a hint about the "decent" area of town. I stayed away from ports/manufacturing districts because that is usually the older parts of town. You might want to get an apartment for a short time to get a feel of the new city/town first before buying. GL! We moved about 8 years ago to a huge HUGE city.....scary for me! We got an apartment first and finally settled into a house in a great neighborhood.

  • Check the public metro/bus routes. The "more busy" part of town(inner city) will have bus routes.

  • You need to have the job first. So start searching. When you land the job, then contact the chamber of commerce for New Town and they'll help you with all the relocation information you could possibly want.
