The inner conflict with my dream to move continues. As some of you may remember, a year ago we had our house on the market with little success. As the summer continues, we are loving our community pool and living close to almost everything we could ever want. However, the frustration over not having a yard continues.
In keeping tabs on the market place we have noted that there are very few homes in our subdivision on the market. Previously it was a non-stop bidding war over who could go lower. We continued to stay at the lowest point and had a lot of traffic but never any valuable offers. Now that there isn’t much competition, it has gotten the wheels turning again.
One thought is that most homeowners in our subdivision are unwilling to go as low as it may take to get rid of their place. And although we are definitely in no means to give away our house, it might be worthwhile to use everything we got just to unload it and work towards more. Perhaps even spend the next couple years renting in order to save for a purchase.
And of course the aggravation over being in that position continues to fester. We would have been better off six years ago (when we bought the place and told ourselves that we’d live here three years tops) to have continued to rent than have to pay a boatload just to get rid of it.
Our place really is great and suits are needs pretty well for the time being. And we are always so anxious for the next step that we sometimes get ahead of ourselves. That being said, how do you stay ambitious and work towards the future without being too reckless and impatient? It’s a thin line…
