After I finish schooling, cooking, cleaning and blogging, I grab a cup of coffee and sit in front of the computer and peruse the home listings in the area of where we want to move to.
I don't know what the market is like for Kanas City homes, Chicago homes or San Francisco homes, but I know there are plenty of homes in the place we're moving to that I'd gladly purchase.
I go to different websites, and I contemplate whether we want a newer home or an older home. Whether we want something fully renovated already or to gut everything and renovate ourselves. A ranch or a two story, pool or no pool, foreclosure or not…
And then I remember…we have to sell our home here first.
This will be the third time we've moved since we've been married. The first home we lived in my dad and my brother built. My mom was instrumental in the decorating process, and because we bought it when we got married pretty much all the furniture was purchased for that home.
Then we moved here, and purchased a house, that was new and about 1000 sq ft bigger than our previous home, and I had a bare pallet to work with and a lot more furniture to purchase .
Then we sold that home and downsized to about half…which meant getting rid of some of the furniture we had (LOL). But this home, we had the decorating picked out and finished before moving in, so we didn't have to deal with it later ourselves.
Now we're looking at getting a larger place again! I love my home now, but we don't have a guest room, and I really want to make that a priority in our next home. And I suppose that means we're going to have to buy more furniture…again, ha ha, how ironic that we've come full circle with our homes again after 18 years. This time though (hopefully) we'll stay in it longer than the 6 years we've been averaging per home .
Are you selling your home or did you recently? What if anything, would you look for in a new home if you were moving in the near future?
