Both at the same time?
Yep, I did it. Here's what happened: we've been house hunting. Correction: I have been house hunting and been dragging the Spousal Unit along with me. We had decided we wanted a smaller house, smaller mortgage, less property to maintain, etc. Heading into retirement, let's downsize.
So I found a few that were good, we went to look. Nope, not so good. Ditto. Ditto. Ditto.
Finally last Sunday we found the Perfect House. Okay, slightly more than we planned to spend, but still a savings. Smaller property than perhaps we wanted, but doable. Nice space, remodeled, beautiful.
We came home to talk about it and turns out "I'm not ready to move yet."
Here's the perfect house waiting for us, and now you decide not to move?
Long story short: we're going to map out a True Retirement Strategy (I'm not sure what that is, but the SU will know once he sees it) then we'll house hunt.So we had success and failure.
I am restraining myself from checking realtor.com to see if the house is sold. Sigh. Some things just aren't meant to be....
