Moving Out Of State CATCH 22 !!

By Living Free Forever - Melody & Ric Schafer

In this video I talk about moving out of state, some ideas to get around the obstacles of finding a job or finding and apartment when moving out of state.

Moving in general is a stressful event, so being prepared and armed with information is a good idea before setting out to your new home or location...especially when it is out of state or out of the country. Watch YouTube videos, read books, articles, talk to people and whatever else you can do to help prepare yourself for your big move. The more you do the better you will feel about your move.

In this video I discuss the pros and cons to renting a home versus renting in an apartment complex. I personally have lived in both so I share my personal experience.

Renting a house or renting an apartment in a complex really is a personal preference. We all have different needs and wants so do your research and check out all options before making a decision.
