After lots and lots of thought, and some pushing by finances, we have decided to move back into our old house. It’s not in the neighborhood we want to live in but it’s ours and we have to get back in there, refinance and finish what we started when we moved in.
I’m excited for the change and for the opportunity to fix it up so that we can eventually sell it. It is small but has a huge backyard and, I think, lots of potential. I plan to make small changes as we go that will hopefully have a big impact on the feel of it inside. I have already started looking in Pinterest for ideas and plan to take lots of before and after pictures.
Unfortunately we have to ask tenants to move out before we can move in and it’s been their home for some time now. I would guess that it will take them some time to find a new place and pack up to leave. I’m sorry to have to do that but the banking industry dictates on this one.
This decision is part of a larger plan we have to pay off ALL of our debt within a two year period. We have the plan laid out and have made drastic changes to our spending habits already. This feels like a last chance, in a way, to get it together financially so that our kids can benefit from our financial skills and not make the same mistakes we did. Famous last works, I know.
