I can use the website for options, but how bankable are these listings and the details contained therein? It's intimidating to think about buying a home you haven't been standing in front of when you're thinking about commitment. Any advice?<br/><br/>&nbsp;Thanks!<br/><br/>&nbsp;James<br \><br \>26 replies Fri, 17 Sep 2010 13:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-smartest-way-to-shop-for-a-home-remotely/366664/ 2010-09-17T13:50:00Z How do I move for grad school with no job lined up? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-move-for-grad-school-with-no-job-lined-up/467305/ I am going to back to school roughly nine months from now. &nbsp;There are two things I'll need to survive once in Oklahoma: a new job and a new home. &nbsp;My wife and I are looking to purchase our first home in this move. &nbsp;<br/>However, I am unable to do a job interview before leaving my current job. &nbsp;I am a pastor in Colorado, and any church that interviews me will want to hear me preach a Sunday morning sermon, which I can't do without telling my current church why I'm not going to be there that Sunday. &nbsp;The only way to change jobs it seems is to quit, move, and hope and pray I can find work.<br/>But then how do we get a house? &nbsp;Can we get a mortgage based on the income I'm making and then quit? &nbsp;Wouldn't the loan default or get revoked or something?<br/><br/>I'm asking because I feel trapped here and the clock is ticking before school starts. &nbsp;I feel trapped because I can't seem to get a house without a job, but I can't get a job until I'm living local (i.e. have a house). &nbsp;What do I do?<br \><br \>3 replies Mon, 05 Nov 2012 03:57:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-move-for-grad-school-with-no-job-lined-up/467305/ 2012-11-05T03:57:00Z
