I should mention, we found a really great rental near my SIL when we moved here five years ago and we never moved out of that. Our savings got pummeled with my medical issues in 2020ish-now. We were actually about to be ready to look for a forever home. We’ve replenished the nest egg and the market is looking similar/slightly better there.
Thanks Copa! My son is very against it because he has a girlfriend he is intending to marry (since kindergarten) and doesn’t want to leave all his friends but he’s nearly 9. I know he’ll love it.
