Ot Moving Possibility Vent

So, we are being faced with a huge decision-we may have to move within the next year or sooner. Our mortgage went up 200 a month because of property taxes, insurance etc (we live in Florida, the target state). I am devastated because this is our first house and I had all kinds of dreams of remodeling, etc. and our friends live here. I have moved all my life and was enjoying being settled for once. On the other side of the coin, it is completely possible we could move somewhere and get more house for our money than we have now, as well as better schools, which is very important. I am consumed by these thoughts, and having major insomnia. Sigh...anyway. Thanks for listening. Sorry, I had to get it out.

sorry about this, i know the ha__sle it is to move ! But saving money and better schools is better than remodeling , right ?

I know exactly how you feel. My dh and I are planning a move across Canada. We are doing it so my husband can get into a trade and then we can finally start getting ahead. I am so torn because we just moved into our townhouse and although it is kind of in the ghetto, I love it. We have started to remodel and the place is growing on me. I feel as if I havent had a home in years. I haven't been in one place for more than 6 months since 2004. I just want a home. Sorry for stealing your post, but I know exactly how you feel.

That is ok Rhiannon, lets share it. I love the area we live in, its where we went to college and my husband and I met. We have left the area before, and ended up coming back, so this is devastating. Plus, first house and all. But as you both said, home is where you are at the time, and saving money and better schools is worth it. We sort of live in the ghetto too, so a better neighborhood would be nice.
