If you find that you are butting up against that limit when you price out the move, there are ways to trim. I’d say if you want to be here, come on over! You will figure out the $ piece

$20k should be more than enough for the move. I moved here two years ago and left the DC area behind. While I’m single, Expenses likely lower than a family but I spent about $10K. Good luck with the move – you all will really love it out here. I find myself so much happier here than I was in the DMV area.

That’s suppose to cover shipping our household goods (4BR house), closing cost assistance, shipping one car (I hope), a house hunting trip, and any temporary housing. Just wondering if we’re going to exceed that number without even trying very hard. We’ve been in our current house just over a year, so not a lot of equity. But we’ve always hoped to head to Denver (just figured it’d be a few years from now). Opportunity just fell into his lap. Don’t want to turn it down if it really is workable. (We understand relo tax implications, he’ll be working a signing bonus to help cover that).

20k should be more than sufficient. Both me and my partner were able to do it with no relocation money. Cost maybe a few hundred dollars each? Of course, we didn't have an entire house to pack up, but that still shouldn't cost over 20k.

We’re not going to take it. The $20k is enough to move our goods and car. But they’re not able to gross up to cover the tax we’d tax on it. And closing costs are really what is doing us in. Without additional assistance on this side to sell our current house we just can’t do it. We’ll see where we are in a couple of years. This was an opportunity that just fell into his lap and we had to at least try.
