Does where you are moving have public transit?
Rust happens fastest between 30F and 40F when salt is involve so the best thing you can do is keep your car cold all winter, garage kept cars rust out really fast unless you wash them every week then dry them.
I use self healing undercoating and so far it seems to be working, I've also talked to people who spray linseed oil on the under side of their car once a year and claim that they never develop rust.
Snow tires work so well I don't understand why you wouldn't use them.
Synthetic oil and a good battery should keep it starting all winter without a block heater or extra batteries.
