Why did you buy/rent the house you live in?
We bought our house because we fell in love and we could close fairly quickly on it.
My husband switched jobs from area to another almost 7 years ago. We were forced to put our other house on the market and look for a new house. We spent two full days looking at houses and this was the last one on our list. It was more than we had wanted to spend but it fit our needs and we were able to get the price down 10K.
We would love to sell it and buy something with more land but it's not in the cards for us right now....maybe some day.
