We are a couple in our 30’s who currently own a home in Kentucky. I’m a stay at home mom and my fiancé works in tv (videographer) making about 40k/ annually (so you can see we aren’t wealthy, but comfortable) Our current home is estimated to sell for about 200k or a little less, which gives us more or less ABOUT 90k in equity (my fiancé’s mother is a real estate agent and is selling for us and giving us her earned cash from the deal, so it helps) We are moving to Georgia to be closer to my family, but we haven’t started this process yet. My question is, what should the first steps be? And are we going to be able to use fiancé’s current income to close on a new home, or will he need new job pay stubs? He is likely to get a job in the same field making more money in Atlanta. I’ll add- His current job allows him lots of personal and sick time, so he could literally take off work for a month if need be and still get paid. This is a confusing situation for us, but we don’t know where to start or what to tell the loan company. Any advice?
