But this time we really want to sell before we move. It's less complicated that way, although if we do end up building, we'd have to rent a house in transition. So we are waiting for the first bite, and to see what kind of responses we get. Safa makes a good point that we have spend so must time and effort (and money) customizing our home to its current condition, so it doesn't make sense to move and waste all that. She has a valid point, but in my books a home is always a work in progress. If we stay here, I'd still be looking for ways to modify, improve or personalize the place. It's not like you're ever really done. So why would it be any different if we moved?
The home selling market is improving; many houses in our area have recently sold, so this is a good time to put our house on the market too. We pray every day that God give us guidance. If this is what is best for our future, it will happen, otherwise we will continue to live where we are, and be happy about that too.
