Our current house just doesn’t have the right layout or size, especially for 3 growing kids. But selling and buying elsewhere obviously means a big monetary loss. Anyone who’s been on this situation, what made you bite the bullet and move? Or stay where you were & make the most of it? Should we sell our home?

  • Can you remodel your existing home? We added a room – which was ridiculously expensive, but a lot cheaper than moving. And now the house is pretty good for us. Other friends removed a wall or two, and that made a massive difference to their home.

  • Have you thought about renting out your existing home and turn it into an investment property . Then you can buy a newer property for yourself to live in .

  • maybe look at renovations or look around at what else there is. it may not be as much of a loss – perhaps you could rent out your existing house as an investment and buy a bigger property.

  • Kids will grow and leave; maybe find creative ways to live in your space.

  • I have not been in this situation. Would the kids have to change schools? That’s something I struggled with as a kid and making new friends.
