I LOVE the house I live in now. Love it to the point that I never want to move.
However. (I bet you saw that however from a mile off…)
However, the schools here stick out loud. Really. REALLY.
The house across the street from the church is for sale. It’s in a FABULOUS school district.
The price is similar to what we paid for this house, but it’s smaller. (5-3 vs. 3-2)
However, the house in question is move in ready and nice and a ranch and 4 – sided brink – all things that are selling points in my book. Also – it has a fenced in back yard, is close to the pool and a library and playgrounds (not walking distance, but still close). It is walking distance to a grocery and is much closer to my favorite grocery. Also, this house has a fenced in and LEVEL back yard. Fenced for kids. Fenced for a dog. It also has an area that is set aside for a garden. A real garden! With a fence around it. The yard also has a mature apple tree, with a TON of apples on it. I so wanted to pick one… But, I digress. Although I have yet to go inside it, I think I like it. A lot.
However… It may kill us financially to move. In this market, in this neighborhood, at this moment, we may regret trying to sell this house.
What to do?
