... what would it be?
For me, it would be location. I love my neighborhood and my neighbors, but as you've heard me say before, it's a long drive to the places where I spend most of my time. There are all kinds of reasons that people decide to pick up and move - for me and my family, we would love to live closer to where my kids go to school, and since our youngest will be there for seven more years, it's a pretty legitimate reason.
Like anyone considering a move, there are all kinds of factors in play. How much can we get for our current house, and how quickly? What is available where we want to live - and for how much? What kinds of expenses are involved with the move itself, and do those outweigh the benefits of moving altogether? What if we can't find a home we like, and instead we need to build one? If we start to build and then sell our home before the new one is ready, where will we live in the meantime?
These are the conversations swirling around my own house right now, so I can definitely relate to what many of my clients go through while wrestling with the pros and cons of putting a home on the market. My family is still in the early stages of weighing all our options, but if we do decide to make a move, I'll be sharing all the gory details with you here! Stay tuned...
