My search radius has taken me outside of 2 hours of my house. So I'm seriously considering relocation as part of my acquisition strategy so that I can be 100% mind on business from day 1.

I have a wife and 2 kids under 3 YO, so I figure I got one more big move in me before it becomes a burden on the rest of the family.

I'm curious about the people on here who decided to relocate for an acquisition target. How did you manage the move? Did you close first before making the move? Did you buy a house to move your family in? Did you move to the area before or after the close? Any advice or landminds I should consider?
