    Default Where Am I Going?

    The countdown to selling the house & moving has begun. Today I rented a storage unit & purchased boxes & bubble wrap. The house will go on the market the first of October & I'm asking for a 45 day closing which will have the move out in the middle of Nov. DH's last day of work will be Dec. 31st. I have no idea where we will go between the middle of Nov. & Dec. 31st. We may be sleeping in my car

    So here's the rub. DH wants to move away from the area but for the last year I haven't been able to get him to go look at other areas he might like. Also his list of what he wants in a house/yard is so out of the norm & we have a small budget. It seems that it will be more of finding a house that fits the budget and then deciding if the area is safe. For the last year I've been looking on Zillow & Trulia at all of NC, the lower part of VA & the upper part of SC, which is as far as he's willing to go. When I go to Zillow or Trulia & put in the options for a house/yard it goes from 150 houses to two. Usually the two are "handy man" specials & DH is no handy man!

    GrandmaTerry asked in another post if I knew where we were headed. I don't know where we are going but I'm sure it's going to be an interesting adventure!

    Good luck! Hoping you both find your forever place. You can always rent for a bit until you find where you want to be. It's a good way to try it out.

    state emp. credit union has a house in our neighborhood for RENT. It is 3 bedrooms/1 bath/basement on 9 acres fairly mountainous. Don't know the price. But a policeofficer rented it for the past two years and he has bought a farm across the road. You might check on that.

    You might find that you don't want to narrow your search down too much. In my past moves (we're in our eighth house and rented twice before that) I found that many of the listings don't have all the specifics keyed in. For example, things like a fenced yard, fireplace, or other details that some listing agents don't bother adding so that they can get the home on the market as quickly as possible. I know it's a pain but I found it best to look at all the listings the looked remotely interesting and read the descriptions as they had many of those missing details in them.

    Good luck finding a home. It's a tough job!

    When we moved to FL to be nearer DS#1 and family, he gave us 1 zip code area to find a house in. This was to be convenient for him! Truly we are within 20 minutes of their house and in the middle of our houses is Nana and Nandy's house. So it is very convenient for the grandchildren, anyway.

    I hope you find your dream house! That it's convenient to a couple of quilt stores, a grocery store, and doctors and dentists. lol, those things you don't think about when you're looking at floor plans and back yards.

    Oh I wish you luck! The not being able to decide on a destination would drive me batty!

    The address is on Big Creek Rd in Marshall, NC. Of course, it is 25 miles from the actual town of Marshall.
