Moving out of state without work is a risky task: things may not work out well and you may not be able to find a suitable job in your new area (or you might not like your new city, after all). You need flexibility to be able to move easily if your plans go wrong. Not sure how to get an out-of-state apartment without work? We have some recommended strategies to complete your apartment search successfully. Yes, I can't say for a house, but I think they can do the same thing, since they don't want to rent to people without work that equals income to pay rent, etc.
I would start looking for a job and apply. I received a job offer when I was out of state before. Even if you have an offer letter with a declared salary, it opens a lot more doors for places to stay and shows the landlord the income.
