  1. Thanks Carol. That is where we are struggling. I don't want to leave money on the table, but I don't want to miss our window of opportunity. And you're right. The difference from January to now has been awe inspiring. We can't really guess what August looks like. I can get another set of numbers from my daughter's realtor. She lives in the subdivision so that may help. But our realtor gave me a few different offer scenarios, examples of what offers might look like. And I know he will hustle, though it seems like the market will do it for him.
  2. I really appreciate everyone's thoughts. It gives us things to consider as we go into this.
  3. We filed with the tax office that we only planned to be away from our home two years so it still is considered our principal residence. That was true when we said it. It just seems it can't be true long term due to the needs of our family (disability). But if it came down to it, we'd make it work temporarily. But what if the market isn't so awesome in a year or two? Seems like it has to change sometime (either bust or even out). So the hope is that the market is so hot to make getting out from underneath the house a possibility. Due to bad choices and how the rental market was last ye
  4. He has been in the business a very long time, does this full time. And yes, he is with a very large agency.
  5. Wouldn't THAT be something. As far as I'm aware, no. When it was on the market previously, he had some crazy idea on what the house was worth without upgrades. However, considering the market and how quickly the house next door sold (first weekend on market), he'd be smart to at least consider it. I'm not telling him that though!
  6. We are just north of a major suburb of DFW if that matters. Its not really rural any more. Obviously summer should be even more hot (haha) because people want to get in a new home before school starts. Homes are selling in an average of 7-10 days. Some are 3, two have been 30 because they were extra greedy in their original ask. I have NO idea about capital gains. I'm gonna have to google that (and then talk to our realtor). I'm sure he would have brought it up if it were an issue, but always better safe than sorry.
  7. So we have a home we bought a few years ago. The market here is beyond hot. Many homes in our subdivision are being listed for $50K plus more than they would have a year ago (our own home is more like $70K more) PLUS they are going for 3-10% more than list price. Additionally, due to family circumstances, we have been renting a bigger home (and bigger payment) this past year and will be here another year, at least. We have rented out our home for a little less than the mortgage (includes taxes, insurance, etc). Additionally, we don't believe we can move back to our home due to family dyna
  8. I feel so bad about what I have put my hubby through. Not abuse or whatever, but significant depression, C-PTSD, anxiety, mood swings, etc. I get so upset that he has had to cope with a marriage to such a broken person. I know he has suffered at times also. He has had his own moments. It sounds like your situation may be just opposite of ours. I do appreciate that we've had some good times, done some amazing things, and have an awesome hope for the future. I lean on those things when times are bad and I know he does also. We've made it through 100% of our tough days for 28 y
  9. I am estranged from my one parent and am mostly glad to be so. There is no way I would take that parent in. I can think of only one time I'd be okay having a real relationship with this person and it isn't in this world under the current system of things.
  10. Thank you. I definitely don't think tofu is boring (soooo much to do with it!), but its always nice to have another recipe 🙂
  11. I've not responded to one of these before (well, in my defense, I've been away from the boards a LONG time). Today isn't planned to be the most productive days. Mostly, we are looking at: basic morning chores breakfast pack lunch and snacks for the day FASD support group at a local botanical gardens Swimming this afternoon Simple supper Early to bed for Mom!
  12. Thanks! Life has been, and continues to be, crazy.
  13. Just here to give support and hugs. I saw your title and wondered.... just that I'm in a similar situation of deciding this same thing for one of my children. Its so hard when both school and home really aren't particularly GOOD options (never will either be ideal, I don't think; that's me as a homeschool mom of 24+ years now). Anyway, I wish you peace in whichever decision you make.
