We ain’t moving…..
Also, we ain’t renovating….
The first, because turns out that after paying realtor commissions and taxes and seller’s fees etc that Realtor lady would make more off our house than we would. Screw that. It’s not like we need to move, or downsize or whatever right at this moment. So we’re not….
The second, because we will eventually move in a few years so why spend all that moolah to renovate? We’ll do just enough to spruce up the place when we do decide to sell and that’s it.
Redecorating however, is another story. I’ve kinda got the itch to resurface my kitchen cabinets, replace the carpet with hardwood and put up wainscoting/crown moulding in the living areas….
So there you have it, the Great Moving Debate of 2012 has been settled…for 2012. I reserve the right to bring it up again in 2013. Or 2014. Or whenever I dang well feel like it! We refinanced the house back in April for a ridiculously low interest rate (3.75%) so we’ll just keep paying down the principle and praying that we win the lotto in the meantime, making all this MOOT….Course, that would have been better before that other bastard won the big PowerBall last weekend.
I’ll close with this happy thought:
